NSFW

What does NSFW stand for?

Not safe for work

NSFW is a common online acronym that stands for not safe for work. It’s often used on websites or in emails as a warning before sharing content that could be seen as inappropriate in a professional setting.

For example, if a webpage contains strong language or explicit images, it might be tagged with NSFW. This gives the reader a heads up that they might not want to open the link if they’re in their office or around their boss.

But it’s not just online content that can be NSFW. Sometimes, things like loud music or alcoholic drinks might be described as not safe for work. This means they’re probably not the best choice if you’re trying to keep things professional.
