Subject: Re: Major security risk in the unlock pattern for Android devices

Sure you would.  Most people press slightly harder initially, and
usually the beginning and end points will be rounded.

Would I say its a "major" risk?  No.  The "locking" features of most
phones have no real security purpose at all, just psychological peace.
