Those icons are entirely serious. Modern design, consistent enough style and obvious to a passerby. Maybe not the money bag to me, but I'm sure its more obvious in the context of the application. However in my personal opinion, icons often get bad reputations for being "Clip-art", when they absolutely serve an important purpose. They are easily recognizable ...

It’s a “catch light” from portrait photography. That is literally a reflection of the photographer’s flash, or in some cases, a special light that is meant to light up the eyes. When you look at the portrait, the catch light draws you to the eyes, making the eyes pop out. Illustrators look for details like these so that they can draw simple shapes, and yet ...

I think it is, psychologically, to do with the eye looking more "alive" and animated. If you can see reflections in an eye (which this circle represents), it must be well-moistened, which means the subject is blinking, perhaps looking around, etc. The latter, without the reflection, looks kind of dead, or perhaps in a zombie-like stupor. I think this is ...

The circle (or otherwise white mark) is a meant to be a reflection. The reflection makes it more realistic and understandable as an icon. As seen in a google image search, our eyes are pretty reflective and we often perceive this even if we don't consciously think about it. As Andrew H notes, this reflection is called a catch light. Below is one for ...

One thing that should be noted is that with the long press gesture there generally isn't any indication until after the user has long pressed on the item. The indication can then be either the wiggle that you mention or it can be the bars or whatever icon you decide on. If the bars are visible all the time, the user will expect to be able to rearrange by ...

You have to understand the icon first. Just like the toggle next to it it represents physical object. It visualizes the tactile feedback of the uneven surface (think old Nokia battery cover) that lets your fingers allow to drag it. If you applied this to your problem then this ||| would be your icon. But you also have to follow convention of your OS, and on ...

I'd go for a similar 3 vertical lines to the right of each item, but then I'd also have a line between each item for more clarity

\e61e is technically this character:  in UTF-8 encoding (the default encoding for CSS - this can be changed using @charset). So that's the literal answer to your question. But as Joonas mentioned in the comments, a font can map a character like this to a symbol, in this case an icon, of their choosing. So in actuality, what you're seeing is likely ...

The Noun project can give you ideas. Here are some ideas Image 1-2: Search for Erase, by Chris Robinson and Dan Hetteix Image 3-4: Search for Clear, by Ilsur Aptukov. Search for Empty by Sergey Demushkin. I'm sure you can get more ideas by searching yourself. You can combine ideas, for example clipboard with a eraser symbol etc.

As a metaphoer for "Authenticate" you could also use those "Hi my name is" shield which are used on conventions or networking events. These shields (I don't know how the are called) "authenticate" the person with his name. Or something like a "Passport Control". Where the user badge is validated and then approved. Or you could make a "Stamp" icon you ...

If they don’t like the lock icon, which is kind of a universal for access or no access, then maybe try something like these. Forbidden: Access Granted: OR Visible: Not Visible: There’s also the universals More Info icon to give initial access to a pop-up:

I just found a good way to do this in Affinity Designer. It's not fully automated though. I'll explain how to get the three icon sizes currently needed for iPhone (29pt, 40pt, 60pt), each with 2x and 3x resolution: Create a new Document, set unit to "Points", page size to 29x29 and check "Create Artboard" in the dialog Paste and position your artwork in ...
