Emoji

Emoji (/ɪˈmi/; singular emoji, plural emoji or emojis; from the Japanese 絵文字えもじ, pronounced [emodʑi]) are ideograms and smileys used in electronic messages and web pages. Emoji are used much like emoticons and exist in various genres, including facial expressions, common objects, places and types of weather, and animals. Originally meaning pictograph, the word emoji comes from Japanese ' (絵, "picture") + ' (文字, "character"). The resemblance to the English words emotion and emoticon is purely coincidental.

Using emojis instead of pin codes

Using emojis instead of the standard 0-9 for pin codes...is now the future of cyber security? Certainly images are easier to remember and there are more possible combinations, but, just as some people use easy passcodes such as 1234 or 9999, even more people would likely just choose the first 4 emojis displayed on the screen.
