😨

Fearful Face

A face with small, open eyes, open frown, raised eyebrows, and a pale blue forehead, as if experiencing a cold flash.

While intended to represent fear (less intense than 😱 Face Screaming in Fear), it also conveys a wide variety of emotions, including feeling amazed, shocked, sad, upset, and cold. Bears the same expression as 😧 Anguished Face on most platforms.

Unlike other vendors, Huawei's design shows this emoji holding a hand over its mouth, albeit differently to ðŸ«¢ Face with Open Eyes and Hand Over Mouth and 🤭 Face with Hand Over Mouth. Samsung’s design previously showed upper teeth and tongue.

Fearful Face was approved as part of Unicode 6.0 in 2010 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
