Dummy cursors leave password thieves dumbfounded
Password-theft has been keeping geeks on their toes ever since one wise guy thought of the idea of stealing his best-friend’s password to play a prank. The history of password-theft apart, we’ve just come across a fantastically simple way to confuse prying eyes and keep your data safe and sound! Using dummy cursors that confuse those sneaky looks, this system allows you to punch in your number code safely, as only the user knows the real cursor on the screen!
The remaining dummy cursors just move around the screen, confusing thieves. A transcript from the video goes on to say, “At first sight, it looks as if the user, too, will get confused which cursor is real. But when you try this system, it’s surprisingly easy to understand which one is your cursor. Observers though, don’t know which cursor you’re using.” One thing’s for sure. Password thieves are in for a difficult time with this fantastic development.
