Also applies to school, of course. Usually even being caught simply going to casual sites like Website/YouTube, Website/{{Facebook}}, or {{Dailybooth}} can get you in pretty big trouble there; being caught looking at anything deemed "pornographic" can result in a trip to the vice principal's office, detention, suspension, or even expulsion.

[=NSFW=] can be applied to vulgar or violent, as well as pornographic, content. Also applied as a near-synonym for {{Squick}}. It may also be applied if the link requires sound, as not everyone has headphones at work (or should be wearing headphones, depending on the job).

** The website "How F***ed is the T?", which uses live data to determine average subway wait time, has a "SFW version" called "How's the T?", where descriptions such as "The Red Line isn't very f***ed" are changed to "The Red Line looks just fine".

A common internet warning, usually denoting a picture or video that you wouldn't want to show up when you are surfing the web at work. It's one thing to look up the latest news, check your email or play Solitaire. It's another to be looking at [[UsefulNotes/{{Pornography}} porn]]. Anything with nudity in it at all will often be labelled thus, on the off chance that a passing observer simply ''thinks'' you might be looking at porn.

So called because if you are caught reading a page that is Not Safe For Work at work, you can get fired. For the more graphic [=NSFW=] pages, even having them in the hard drive or cache of a work computer can get you fired. Even showing up in the server log files could be unhealthy.

Just in case you are still not clear on what this means, go to [[DarthWiki/NotSafeForWork this page]] when you have privacy. Then ask yourself, do you really want your boss in the room when you're looking at that stuff?
