What does OFC mean?

Simply put, the abbreviation OFC is short for “of course”. It is used in informal writing, notably in texts and instant messaging, as a response to a question or statement from the other speaker. Most commonly, it has two meanings in this context – as a response to someone thanking you (as in “don’t mention it”) or as reassurance (as in “definitely”). See below for more synonyms.

Like any abbreviation, OFC appeared as a way of saving time – it only has a written form and wouldn’t be used in spoken language. Because it originated in Internet slang and appears in casual contexts, it’s best to avoid it in formal writing and opt for the full phrase or one of the synonyms.
