The meaning of NP is “no problem”.
It is a widely popular form of being courteous online, while saving time on typing in messages.
Alternatively, “Np” may stand as the abbreviation for Nepal.
It originates from the 90’s, when the internet, as well as its chatrooms and forums were considered an exquisite novelty.
People started using “np” in response to its pair, “ty” which expresses thanks.
With the appearance of texts on phones, the shortenings spread even farther, endorsed by many.
