The Newest Trend: Emojis as Passwords

Quick:

Can you rattle off your telephone number
Your home phone
Your mom’s cell
Your social security
Your address
Your best friends address
The year that World War 2 ended
The year World War 1 ended
Your bank account pin?

It can be pretty difficult remembering all those different combinations and it has been found that almost a third of all British bank account holders have forgotten their pin code! Now a British based company, Intelligent Environments, wants to change the password game by completely deviating from number codes and moving into using emojis to represent our passwords. It has been found that people can remember images far better than they can ever hope to remember a numeric series. These emoji-pins will be chosen from an option of 44 different emojis, which will hopefully make the passwords significantly more secure than the past. The only concern would be people confusing which emojis they have chosen for their passcode. This could potentially create confusion for older generations, but this type of design is targeted for the millennials.  

What do you think: are using smiley faces as passwords a useful idea?

  1. I received my hublot replica uk yesterday. It was working when I opened the parcel and it is still working, keeping good time, so thank you for all you have done and please excuse the one or two tag heuer replica uk that sounded angry! I received the watches but one of them (the Hysek) has few problems, a cartier replica uk screw on the back cover , the main circle turns but has a rather large vertical play, seems it is not fix properly, and a front rivet screen is missing. I have no problem to fix back the rolex replica sale. If you have a spare one but the rivet in the front and the rest, I do not know what to do, to be honest I am not satisfied that the replica watches sale has so many problems. I want to return it , can you please send the return address ? You can make a refund when you receive the watch back. Do you have any other rolex replica sale? I wonder if I buy another two replica watches sale, can you sell me one more Chronograph Asia Valjoux HYSEK ABYSS Explorer 7750 Movement PVD / Rose Gold with Black Dial Model: 53 594 at half price and in this case I will keep the one with tag heuer replica sale like it is , I don`t want to lose another $20? Yes, I have 2 pictures.
