What is gpw short for?

Global Password

A gpw is a "global password" that refers to a main password used for multiple logins. People may also use gpw to refer to a system admin password on a computer.

As users juggle numerous accounts for various services, they may employ a gpw to help them manage all their accounts instead of using separate passwords (pws). For example, a person may use a gpw to sign into streaming services, baking accounts, etc. While the abbreviation is uncommon, you may encounter techies and IT professionals using it in professional environments in messages and emails (or even online forums).
