What does DIKU stand for in chat and text messages?

Do I know you

When someone you messaged does not recognize your name or number, they may respond with DIKU (do I know you). Before continuing your conversation, you should let this person know who you are.

Most often, you'll receive DIKU after you've switched phone numbers or when messaging someone for the first time. For example, if you text your brother's GF and she doesn't have your contact info, she may respond with "I'm sorry, who the heck is this? DIKU?"


Sorry, I don't recognize this number. DIKU?
It's me, Steve. Obviously
