If your teenage son or daughter has a smartphone, they may be using a series of secret codes to communicate with friends without you or other parents knowing what they’re saying.

Teen texting codes revealed

However, other teen texting codes are far more secretive. Bark, a tech company that helps parents monitor their children’s messages for issues like cyber-bullying and sexting, has put together a new list.

Using Bark’s list and another one from NetLingo, we’ve identified some of the most surprising codes.

Before you read through this list, we should let you know that many of the codes refer to either sex or drugs, two things parents of teenagers are naturally concerned about.

Here’s the list of 25 texting codes every parent should know:

  1. 1174 – Meet at a party spot
  2. 420 – Marijuana reference
  3. 53X – Code for sex
  4. 8 – Code for oral sex
