    Password & Login embedded in Picture/Image!!!

    Hi,

    I've seen a guy who just pressed one of his images on the desktop to get/login in to his email account when in public to protect himself.. later he pressed another image to login to Facebook etc..

    Do you guys know how it's done on Mac/PC?

    Just a wild guess...

    Write an Apple Script or Automator file to do the login. Then, in Finder Info, change the generic icon to that of an image of your own choice. The result will be what you describe.

    Disadvantage: anybody who gets access to the computer will be able to log in the same way. For myself, I use 1Password: far more flexible and secure.
