Security in the computer is largely supported by the passwords for authentication process. The common computer authentication method is to use alphanumerical usernames and passwords. However, users have complexity remembering a password that is long and random appearing. Instead, they create short, simple, and insecure passwords. Graphical passwords have been designed to try to make passwords more memorable and easier for people to use and more secure. The graphical password provides a promising alternative to traditional alphanumeric passwords. In this paper, graphical passwords have been introduced as an alternative to authentication schemes. Though the graphical password scheme helps in generating more user friendly passwords, they are still weak to shoulder surfing. To address this issue, text along with image can be combined to generate more secure password. In this paper we developed a design of graphical region and alphanumeric password system as to click on image along with text and select the region rather than type only alphanumeric characters.
