chains ⛓️

Link things up with the Chains emoji! This emoji depicts a pair of chains placed next to each other. The chain’s links interlock with one another, giving it a rope-like look. The Chains emoji is quite a versatile emoji, with multiple different meanings depending on the context.

One of them is to show restrictions, or to keep something or someone in place. If something or someone is trapped (literally and figuratively,) the emoji chain may be used in that situation. This makes it somewhat of a jail emoji.

For example, if you’re tied to your office chair at work because of so many things to do, you can use the Chains emoji to describe your dilemma. Feel free to use the Chains emoji to refer to a chain reaction, or chain of occurrences, as well. They can be a series of explosions occurring in a specific neighborhood or random acts of kindness that have spread throughout an entire area.

Oftentimes, the Chains emoji is mistaken for the Link emoji, since they do look alike and have quite the same meaning. However, the chain emoji, as it is sometimes called, shows two rows of links rather than one. Moreover, it stands vertically, is in a vertical position, while the Link emoji is sloping or leaning in one direction.

⛓️ Chains is a fully-qualified emoji as part of Unicode 5.2 which was introduced in 2009, and was added to Emoji 0.7.
