British banks consider emoji as password replacement

The problem I see with this is we all whether we are concious of it or not - choose something that forms a pattern. The chances are that the emoji picked will form a story in users brain. It would be interesting for a study to be done with a large number of people - where the emoji picked are recorded - and then find out how many of the full library of available emoji are actually picked as the starting emoji, you could then find out how many real possible combinations there are after the starting emoji.
