Users are comfortable in using easy-to-guess passwords. The danger of using common passwords is that they are easy to break and compromises the security and privacy of the users. Sometimes, users are not comfortable using complex passwords as they are difficult to remember. Therefore, they resort to using simpler passwords.

In our proposed work, we want to design and develop a novel and easy-to-use password manager. The developed manager will let the user draw simple shapes by using a matrix of connected dots. The program further will transform these drawn shapes and use a set of mathematical rules and user-related metrics and generate a complex password that the user will be able to use in real-world systems.

It is easy for the user to draw geometric shapes and retain the drawn passwords. Therefore, we anticipate the users to be willing to adopt such a password generator in their daily usage.
