BlackBerry 10 Picture Lock
By Kevin Michaluk on 11 Feb 2014 01:27 pm EST

Okay, so it's been a while since we've done an awesome contest here on CrackBerry, so to get back in the swing of things I'm actually taking a suggestion from the forums for our next one. In honor of the release of BlackBerry OS 10.2.1, we're doing up a sweet quick contest that will show just how amazing this new OS is. I call this one the "Guess my Picture Password and win!" contest.

It's as simple as it sounds — watch the Instagram video here of me entering my picture password right in front of your face, then see if you can guess exactly what my password is. That's it! I'm showing you the answer!! If you win this one we'll hook you up with a $200 pre-paid Amex card. Since we'lll announce the winner this Friday, we suggest you put it to quick use on the significant other in your life in honor of Valentine's Day.

Everyone gets one guess in the comments. You'll have to tell us what number is going where in order to unlock the device. Be specific! If multiple people get it right, whoever got it first will be declared the winner. And we're only running this one for a few days so you won't have too much extra time to try and figure it out. 

Sound good? We're going to prove just how awesome Picture Password is with this one. I'm guessing no one will be able to crack it.

Contest: Leave a single comment on this post with your best guess for what my password is. You'll need to tell us the number as well as what specific place it goes on the photo. Contest is open until this Thursday night at midnight PT. We'll announce the winner on Valentine's Day here on the blogs. Good luck!

Guess my Picture Password and win contest!



Thanks Anthony & Kevin.
I get stuck after choosing the number dragging it to the area of the screen, then after it states I have chosen the combination, next step. Wow, big fail.

To nervous as I'll end up locking my self out of my own darn phone.

It's not quite the same as losing the keys to the house, as I can always kick the door down. I can't kick the screen to get into my phone.

Think I'm getting too old for this technology stuff.

Catapulted from my Z10.

IMHO this is one another proof from BB they made BB10 not an OS for cheap phones. People who buy cheap phones want everything work without thinking. You or me, or any loyal BB User start to ask when something doesn't go smooth with BB10. Other Customers just give up before giving BB10 a bit of time to get used to this really unique system. BTW, what is doing BlackBerry with tutorials? They are being done almost the same past way. When my Students years ago were informing me they had a lot of problems with Logic, I wrote for them some creative eBook to let them start to have fun with acquiring this quite complicated matter for most of Students. All of them passed exams and like logic until now. BlackBerry seems to have a problem with thinking like a Customer before...

[...] First ever London smartphone story powered by Z10:

I love your logic definition of "how to overcome security at times of need" or the lack thereof a work around on BlackBerry if we mess up the password

You are never to old for technology. Even on the TTC I saw woman easily in her 60's using a Z30 I was shocked and asked her how was the learning curve l. She said it was so easy and doesn't understand how people find it complicated lol I was dying of laughter.

So glad you only went with only one demonstration, more than one would have made it too easy on a video.
Now let's get crackin'! >:)

First key is do not touch your number just tap the screen and scroll...i hated it at first, now it's the best !
Really people have a hard time guessing the code.
Today my code is #8 on the red tile, by 4pm its # 3 on the side of the building, yesterday it was # 1 over the 3rd cow out of the 12 scattered farm animals tomorrow its ???

Wow, thanks jic999. I kept trying to drag the number to the spot with my finger, and it would take several tries to get it just right. It's much easier this way.

It's the zero, placed on the green and with a single yellow striped marble. But, only on the green portion of the marble.

Posted via CB10

EDIT: Adding more info based on need to get as accurate as possible.

From the middle of the screen ( where the blue marble is dead center), move down 2 spots, then turn to the right until you get to two marbles together, the green-yellow one on top of a pure green one, as mentioned in my first post. Slide the 4 there, and Bob's your uncle.

2 between the big blue ball and little yellow ball, where at the beginning of the video there is a 3

i made my guess further down, but i now think you are correct. kevin would have made it easier on us so we could guess. also we know it cant be any number above his finger when it ends. he makes it way to easy on us :D

this is where I think you were saying

Yeah I disagree too. When I use picture password I almost always drag numbers in from originally offscreen until I find the one I want, then I put it where it needs to go. Just seems more secure. I would think that Kevin would do the same.

disagree -- as long as the position is above his finger, the number can even be offscreen above his finger (provided the distance from the edge of the screen to his finger allows it)

I would probably have guessed the same as bobshine, and playbookster is clever getting two guesses in one answer -- but I think I am going with the 2 to the right of the finger at the space between those three marbles.

The number 4 on the half green peeble. From bottom right third peeble up there's a green peeble covered by a two tone green peeble. The one on the bottom is yours

From Z10 to Z30

Man, that's my guess too. You got it first though. The problem is all my other possible guesses have been guessed already too. Oh well - good luck everyone.

#1 between the marbles? I have no idea. Let's see if there will be even a winner lol.

Posted via CB10

Reminder to be VERY SPECIFIC in terms of where the number is ending up....  say the # of rows from top / bottom and # of marbles in and color from left / right.  BE. SPECIFIC.

The number six that's on the gold marble above your finger. Four rows down and three in from the top left corner.

Posted via CB10

Number 7 top left corner between 2 blue balls. Upper ball is blue and the bottom one is dark blue. Between them there is the number 7. The top of the number 7 is the line that cross the two balls - and thats the code to enter.

Picture password was it that do you need 10.2 and up to utilize that feature? Sorry by now I am sure you guessed I am in the U.S. One day!

Posted via CB10

You moved the 5 in the top left of the screen (second column of numbers at start) to the large blue marble with a hint of orange (if a specific part of the marble is needed to unlock then the final position on the large blue marble was a bit to the right of the center of the large blue marble.) in it close to the lower center part of the screen.

#2...on the 4th row between the big blue marble and the yellow/green stripped marble.

Posted via CB10

Number 2 on top of the greenish marble and dark blue one right over top of where they meet. (looks like a blue Crescent moon).

Both are about three rows up from the bottom of the screen and approximately 3 over from the left of the screen.

Posted via CB10

Top of the 8 touching the top-left side of the dark blue marble closest to the lower-right corner of the picture.

Z10 STL100-3 | | Bell | CB10

6 on the right side of the white marble, top left quadrant, surrounded by the blue and orange marbles.

My guess is that it's the number 4 and the spot is the White and Yellow marble under Kevin's finger at the end of the password sequence. (above the all white marble, under the multicolored marble; 2nd number row up from the bottom, and third number row from the left-hand side of the display).

The number 9 on the blue ball but at the same time between the blue and bigger orange ball.

Posted via CB10

This contest just goes to show how effective BlackBerry's picture password feature is. Look at how many different answers there are and if Kevin did another video, he'd be dragging his finger from a different location.

Brilliant, BlackBerry! :)

Number 8 in the center of the orange marble (between the black and yellow) in the last (bottom) row in the right-hand corner.

4th row from the top .. number 6 which is below the no. 6 and right to the 1 and left to the 3 (although any six can be used :) ) ... the 6 number is place over the golden ball just left to the big orange ball

Its the number 2 and you placed it on the top left of that goldish ball. You love gold Kevin so of coarse it will be a gold ball and the 2 is for 10.2 for picture password :)

Posted via CB10

Number 2 (2nd column from the left, 2nd row down from top, under the number 5) slides down and to the right close to where the number 3 is (3rd column from the left, 6 rows down, where the blue and green marbles meet) ending slightly onto the green marble.

Number 2 to yellow - bottom right of screen...well, that's my guess...thanks for the competition!

Posted via CB10

#2 below your finger dragged to the left corner of the greenish yellow marble near the blue marble were the number 3 starts at; third from the bottom up and third across.

If you are supposed to guess here, THEN BASICALLY HE MOVED THE 2 TO RIGHT BELOW WHERE THE 3 WAS. They have it at an angle so you can't really tell. I'm on Sprint, so I have never used it before either and I can see the password.

Posted via CB10

Penultimate row, number 7, orange ball (next to the blue one with the number 8)

Posted via CB10

I believe bobshine, pbpg, Rider Prider Superfly_FR, wineng all may have it before me. 8 on the very bottom, right side orange marble. Maybe. :)

Posted via CB10

im gonna have to say # 4 on the white and yellow marble that's above the white marble in the bottom row.

Number 4, center of the green marble about a quarter of the way up the screen. *fingers crossed*

Posted via CB10

#8 over orange mix with white and yellow ball first row from bottom, second row from right

Posted via CB10

Starting from the bottom left of the screen, it looks like the number 2, about 3-4 rows up from the bottom, 3 columns to the right, on the upper left edge of the green/goldish ball. Just below where the 3 is at the still shot before the video starts.

Posted from my Z10 via CB10

#4 over yellow and white ball, third row from the left and third row from the bottom

Posted via CB10

4 in the centre of the yellow and white marble (from bottom left corner - over 3 to the right and then up 2)

The blue ball and tan ball with orange swoosh. Near the bottom just to the left of center. The number 7 goes centered exactly where those two balls meet.

Posted via CB10

it's the number two and you slide it to in between the big marble blue ball with the orange at the top of the ball and the pale yellowish greenish ball. It has to land right in the gap between the two balls

the 3 on the top row , specifically in the triangle between the (orange/white) & (Navy/light Blue) & (black with wite dots) marbles

4 in the middle of the white/yellow marble, slightly above and between the two blue marbles at the bottom towards the left.

Best password system, period!

Posted via my  Z10 - - C0012139E

0 on the Green and Yellow marble in the middle right of the screen.
Specifically on the green part in between the two yellow parts of the marble.

i love the picture password. tho kevin does make it easy on us (i think). unless he is totally messing with us there is only a limited area where the number could be.

i explain here. would like to know if you agree/disagree

Its either number 4 in column 3 2nd row from bottom on the yellow/cream marble or number 6 in column 3 4th row from top on the golden marble....and if it's not those two then I'd guess you played it smart and didn't use a number that's dead center on any of the marbles

#7 in the third row from the top (only 7 in the row), right edge of the green marble.

The number 2, a bluish green one, on the far right side of the device, 4 rows from the top, right beside to the volume down key.

2 on the left side of the weird yellow and red marble that is just under the big blue marble that has a little bit of orange on the top left. (3rd marble going from left to right, and 3rd marble going from bottom to top).

Even though this is really hard to figure out since you do not need to be touching your number when you drag it.

the 0 between 3 and 6 in the top left that goes right in the middle of the two balls (I'm colour blind but I'd say blue and grey)

The "4" on the green ball, that is half hidded, in the bottom fourth of the screen, left to the orange ball on which you put the "7"... You put your finger left to your number and brought it down to the middle and right...
I am convinced it is the "4" on that "half hidden green" :-D sadly cant't post a screen shot in this comment.

Posted via my BlackBerry*Q10, Germany - Running OS

My guess is 8 (from third row, third from right) and the location is the upper left of the blue marble in the bottom right (the one that's fully visible).

It's number 7 which is on the red marble from the bottom between two blue I right?

The thing with a video is that you can rematch it, play it in slow motion and all that.

If you saw him do this live, in real time with no replay... no way you could guess

Like if you saw it in a snap chat lol

Posted via CB10

I read your update about wanting a very specific answer.

The number 6 over the small pearl white marble in the 6th row touching 3 blueish balls just above your finger.

Posted via CB10

4 lined up with the green marble to the right of your finger. The green marble that's half poking out from under the yellow/green marble.

The number 4 on the white and yellow marble, the one in-between the blue marble and the red and white marble.
