This paper describes an exploratory study focusing on the methods of mobile authentication currently utilized by individuals who are blind. Perceptions of security are discussed, along with the trade-offs with usability and accessibility. A tactile aid for a mobile authentication interface was introduced to participants to obtain preliminary feedback on its design. The aid was found to offer promise for supporting orientation, which could be used support novice users, and provide assistance when the mobile device must be used privately in public spaces.
