@remoulder As you've stated before, Linux Mint is a general purpose desktop distribution. As such, many of users enjoy using a "Picture Password" as their login option. This does NOT need to be default, but it should be an option for the user. The more Linux Mint forces practices on its user-base, the more Windows-like it becomes.
@keshavm021 Linux Mint combines several pieces together to produce a distribution with the best desktop experience. With that in mind, you need to take this idea to the team who develops the piece you're wanting to improve. In this case, I believe it would be MDM. So, while "Linux Mint" has developers for MDM, they're separate from this.
Linux is not Windows and doesn't need to copy it. Suggesting such features will make things easier and more secure is your opinion and factually incorrect as picture passwords have been shown to be easily cracked.
In addition this is a suggestion for the developers of whichever display manager you want to use, e.g. https://github.com/linuxmint/mdm/issues
