We have many authentication schemes presently, but they all have a few disadvantages. So recently, the 3D password paradigm was introduced. The 3D password is multi-factor authentication system as it uses various authentication techniques such as graphical password, textual password etc. Most important part of 3D password is inclusion of 3D virtual environment. However the 3D Password is still in its initial stages. Designing various kinds of 3D virtual environments, interpreting user feedback and deciding on password spaces, and experiences from such environments will bring about upgrading and enhancing the client experience of the 3D Password. Moreover, gathering attackers from various foundations to break the system is one of the future works that will lead to system improvement and demonstrate the complexity of breaking a 3D password. This paper introduces a study of the 3D password and reinforce it by including a Fourth dimension, that deals with time recording and gesture recognition, and that would help strengthen the authentication paradigm. Henceforth we endeavor to propose a 4D Password as a one-up technique to the 3D Password.
