As SailfishOS is a gesture-based OS, would be nice to have the possibility (i.e. only if activated) for a gesture-based lock screen, as: draw your own swirl on the screen to unlock?
Of course, as not always it's practical/reliable/safe to use gestures, this variant of lock should offer a way to input the classic PIN.

Weren't studies out there stating that the Android-like gesture unlock "code" is less secure than entering a PIN as you can retrace it somehow?
