What does CIL stand for?

Check in later

When you see CIL, it stands for “check in later.” This is a handy acronym you can use when texting your buddy, workmate, or loved one to give them a heads up that you’ll reach out to them soon.

Alternatively, you can use CIL to ask someone to get back to you later, when they’re done with their current task. This is a great way to ensure they don’t forget to communicate with you once they’re free.

If you’re planning to meet up in person later, you can swap CIL for CYL or cul8r. These are other popular acronyms that convey the same idea of checking in later in a more specific context.
