What does AYOR mean in messages and online?

At your own risk

When someone says you can do something AYOR (at your own risk), it means you can do it, but you're responsible if you screw it up or hurt yourself. And there's a good chance you will.

For example, if you ask about jailbreaking your iPhone in a tech forum, a user may give instructions for jailbreaking your device but tell you to use them AYOR. This is because jailbreaking your device can void your device's warranty and leave it vulnerable to hackers.

Most people use AYOR when giving risky advice online in forums. They may also use it in texts and online messages.
