Digital security is becoming an ever pressing issue for businesses and consumers alike and one company may have developed a unique solution that all parties involved will appreciate: emoji passcodes. Not only are emoji passcodes easier to remember, they are also more secure than the traditional four digit bank PINs people are accustomed to using.

Developed by a British software company called Intelligent Environments, the emoji passcodes are nevertheless much harder to implement than think of. Yet the company claims banks can adopt the system within 12 months. Many banks might want to do just if only for the reason that the emoji passcodes are supposedly "480 times more permutations using emojis over traditional four digit passcodes," claims Intelligent Environments.
