㊙ Japanese “secret” Button

Meaning

Japanese “Secret” Button emoji is a Japanese kanji in a circle meant to represent secretness. Everyone’s got a secret, some you would rather keep to yourself for personal reasons. Now you don’t have to tell that nosey person you want to keep a secret, just send this emoji. Though not everyone will understand what the kanji means, so send it with a Zipper-Mouth emoji to show you are not going to say anything. But secrets can also be sneaky and rather teasing when in the right scenario. Send it with a 😏 Smirking Face emoji ic you have a rather tantalizing secret you might share in the right scenario.

Examples of using

“I’m trusting you to keep this a ㊙ or you’ll ruin mom’s birthday party.”
