What is pw short for?


Pw is a common abbreviation for "password." People typically use pw when discussing login credentials for a computer, app, or website. For example, your company's IT person might tell you to "never share your username or pw with anybody - ANYBODY, even your BFF or SO."

In the computer age, people have many pws - often too many to remember. That's why you may also see co-workers, friends, and forum users discussing pw managers, which keep track of all your pws for you.
