What is pw short for online?


Pw is a common abbreviation for "password." People typically use pw when discussing computer, app, or website login credentials. 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.

Also, people commonly share pws with their relatives and friends to give access to different types of services. Some common examples include content-streaming sites and e-commerce platforms.
