I use 1PW on my iPhone to store all the amazingly long, complex passwords I use. Recently I was considering the following scenario:
I get mugged in an alley / robbed at home / held up in a McDonald's, and the thieves take my phone
Threatening violence, they convince me to tell them my phone's unlock code
Opening the phone, they notice an icon of a lock and key and an app name of "1Password." Instantly intrigued, they ask for the code for that app as well. I refuse, of course, but three fingers later I break, and these lowlifes now have access to every password I use.
I wonder if an icon of a unicorn and an app name of "Pink Pony" wouldn't be a lot more secure against this kind of uninformed attack. Of course sophisticated thieves would know the app aliases... so perhaps there's a custom service 1Password could offer where I could pick the icon, and the app name. That would be hard to scale, of course, but some of us may be willing to pay a lot extra for the added security.
Or am I being paranoid (or overly protective of my fingers?)
