My picture password on my Windows 8.1 tablet is all messed up! No matter how many times I draw my exact three lines as they are as I set them up, I always get a "the picture password is incorrect. please try again" and I know I am drawing the three lines accurate, they are based on a fairy's shrinking abilities. I googled the picture password is incorrect. please try again but didn't get any related hits, searched again with quotes and got "no results for" the picture password is incorrect. please try again" searching without quotes. How can I get past this or fix the image to where it accepts my three lines that I made and are drawn correctly for a password.

If the picture password once worked but now does not, suggest you reset it using the directions in the link below. That site gives about every

instruction/ detail needed about using a picture password. Even more links to related tutorials at the bottom of the page.

that only tells you how to create one, or remove it once logged in, but if you cannot log in... It tells you how to change it as well, but nothing about it not working 90% of the time. even if I go and change it, it asks to put the current one in which despite already being logged in, keeps saying it is incorrect. if I try to remove it, the tablet is usless if our frequently down internet is down
