1. A method for providing an electronic item, comprising:
receiving, from a first computing device associated with a first user via a software application, an electronic lock, and the electronic item, wherein the electronic lock comprises a lock clue, a lock image, and a lock solution, wherein the lock solution represents a trace path associated with a portion of the lock image;
transmitting, to a second computing device associated with a recipient and for display by the second computing device, the lock clue and the lock image;
receiving, from the second computing device, an attempted lock solution comprising an attempted trace pattern, the attempted trace pattern representing a second user-input trace pattern made by a second user of the second computing device by tracing a second line over a second portion of the lock image using a second touchscreen associated with the second computing device; and
responsive to determining that the attempted lock solution matches the lock solution within the predetermined confidence level, granting access to the electronic item to the second computing device; and
responsive to determining that the attempted lock solution does not match the lock solution within the predetermined confidence level:
transmitting, to the first computing device, a failed unlock attempt notification;
receiving, from the first computing device, a remote unlock instruction; and
responsive to receiving the remote unlock instruction, granting access to the electronic item for the second computing device.
