CC means carbon copy. It is an email field that allows the sender to copy a message to one or more other addresses besides the main recipient.
While CC is commonly used as a noun it can also be used as a verb, i.e. "CC the rest of the group in your e-mail as well." It appears above the "BCC" field and below the "To" field at the top of an email.

CC stands for "credit card," a payment method offered by companies such as Visa, American Express, MasterCard, and Discover. People most often use the CC acronym when clarifying how they can pay for things, whether online or in real life.
While the idea of CCs dates back to at least the early 20th century, it wasn't until the 1980s and 90s that the larger public began adopting them. Then, online CC purchases skyrocketed as the Internet became commonplace in the 2000s. Nowadays, you can buy almost anything online with your CC.
Most CCs include a magnetic stripe or embedded chip read by a machine to verify and complete a purchase. Cards also include the name of the user or business, a unique string of digits to identify the user, the expiration date, and a card verification value (CVV).

When you are hanging out and your friend asks what you are up to, you can reply with "CC," which means "casually chilling." CC is one of many slang terms for relaxing, with others being chill, chillax, veg, and moss.
The first "C" in the acronym may be a little overkill since not many people engage in "formal chilling," but it's helpful to be precise. Examples of casual chilling include laying on the couch binge-watching a show or hanging out at the beach reading a book.
|Chillax||Chill and relax|
|Binge-watch||To view many episodes or movies in a row|
|Bruh||A male friend|
Some online chat users use CC to stand for "I copy," which is another way of saying "I understand." This version of CC is used in response to requests or assertions, to let you know you've been heard and understood.
Typically, users who are using CC to mean "I copy" place the acronym at the beginning of their messages. While this usage of CC is uncommon, you may still encounter it while chatting with older users.

In MMORPGs, MOBAs, and other online games, CC stands for "crowd control." If another player asks you for CC, it means they want you to stun or immobilize an enemy (or group of enemies).
There are a number of ways a player might perform CC within an online game. For example, many player characters (PCs) can stun, trap, knock back, blind, or otherwise disrupt enemies. If a CC effect completely neutralizes an enemy, rendering them unable to fight, it is called hard crowd control. If a CC effect impairs an enemy but leaves them able to fight, it is called soft crowd control.
