"The increase in the use of automated systems has brought about an increase in the amount of personal information in electronic form; and as a result there is need for confidentiality. A good system must be able to identify ""Who"" is accessing ""What"". Several authentication systems use password (text) as an authentication means while in modern computing, graphical password is beginning to gain ground due to its advantage in the area of usability. This paper studies graphical password with the view of merging its strength with the strengths of text password to produce what is known as a hybrid authentication system."
