PicoNo more passwords!

Start using Pico today!

Pico is an alternative to passwords developed at the University of Cambridge that enables a smooth and password-free login to computers, and consists of a smartphone app and associated software on your computer.

Instead of asking you to enter a password every time to log in, Pico lets you authenticate at the tap of a button on your phone. Pico uses Bluetooth Low Energy to communicate between your phone and computer, and allow them to detect each other's presence. Conversely, when they are no longer in proximity, Pico will lock your session.

To set up Pico, first choose your operating system below.
