Lots of codes and ciphers use a substitution of letters (or digits or other characters) by symbols (small glyphs/drawings). Here is a list of tools with an overview of the symbols used:

There is currently no system capable of recognizing the language used according to the symbols of a cipher. The best method is to go through the examples of codes with symbols until you recognize visually the one actually sought.

dCode therefore provides a list of all the ciphers using symbols with an overview of the glyphs for each of them.

Sometimes the symbols are Unicode characters and can directly be displayed without using images.

After the first step, which is to recognize what code it is, use the dedicated page for this encryption on dCode, the tool's page will contain all the necessary explanations.

What to do if the code is not in the list?
