          Abstract

          In this paper we present a way of hiding the data in mobile devices from being compromised. We use two level data hiding technique, where in its first level data is encrypted and stored in special records and the second level being a typical password protection scheme. The second level is for secure access of information from the device. In the first level, encryption of the data is done using the location coordinates as key. Location Coordinates are rounded up figures of longitude and latitude information. In the second phase the password entry differs from conventional schemes. Here we have used the patterns of traditional Rangoli for specifying the password and gaining access, thus minimising the chances of data leak in hostile situations. The proposed structure would be a better trade off in comparison with the previous models which use Bio Metric authentication -- a relatively costly way of authentication.
