What Does OTP Mean?

The most common version of OTP stands for “One True Pairing.” This refers to someone’s favourite fictional relationship. In other words, it’s two characters they think are cute together or think should get together, even if they’re not. For example, someone might write, “I love them together, they’re my OTP, honestly.” Beyond that, as the name implies, it’s a relationship they care about more than any other fictional relationship.

Other Meanings Of OTP

However, there are also a few different meanings that OTP can refer to. One of these is One Time Password. If you’re running a transaction that needs extra security, many websites now employ two factor authentication. This is a way for them to confirm it’s you, usually through a code sent by text or email. So, if you get a message saying, “Here is your OTP,” this is likely what it’s about.

OTP can also mean On The Phone. Some people are adept at multitasking and can text at the same time as they talk over the phone. However, for many this can present a conundrum. If you pick up the phone in the middle of texting someone, you don’t want them to think you’re blowing them off. So, you might write a message like, “Sorry, OTP right now.” Or, the acronym could simply be referring to a previous conversation, like “I was OTP with her the other day.”

Other Snapchat Acronyms To Know

There are a wide range of acronyms that are commonly used on Snapchat. ATM stands for at the moment. BRB stands for Be Right Back. ILY stands for I Love You. NRS stands for No Replies, Sorry. SFS stands for Shoutout For Shoutout or Snap For Snap. SMT stands for Send Me That. STE stands for Sent To Everyone. TBH stands for To Be Honest. TBT stands for Throwback Thursday. WR stands for Won’t Reply.
