I wanted to check if it's possible to use emoji in a password for my Account on OS Yosemite. It worked but I didn't realize that the login screen has only native keyboards, so I can't type emoji there.
So the situation is that I know my password but I can't type it. The machine has rebooted to the Recovery HD and I don't see a way to enable the emoji keyboard there. In effect, since FileVault was turned on, I can't restore the password easily.
I see three possible options here, but would be happy to hear anything else:
- Find a way to type emoji in the password field, this would be ideal.
- Access my Account from external machine that will allow me to type my password from there so I can type emoji (not sure there such a thing)
- Restore the password even though I used FileVault.
