Emoji

Emoji (Japanese: 絵文字えもじ, English: /ɪˈmi/; Japanese: [emodʑi]; singular emoji, plural emoji or emojis) are ideograms and smileys used in electronic messages and web pages. Emoji exist in various genres, including facial expressions, common objects, places and types of weather, and animals. They are much like emoticons, but emoji are actual pictures instead of typographics. Originally meaning pictograph, the word emoji comes from Japanese + . The resemblance to the English words emotion and emoticon is purely coincidental. The ISO 15924 script code for emoji is Zsye.

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.
