What does SIA stand for in online chat?

Someone is around

When someone you're chatting with sends you SIA, it means there's someone else near their computer, who can read your conversation with them. So, you may want to be careful about what you say going forward.

For example, a friend might use SIA to warn you that their parents or siblings are around. Thus, you shouldn't send your friend anything inappropriate, as doing so might get them in trouble.


Heads up, SIA right now
