Code 9 was first noticed a few years ago. It is simply a silent warning that “I cannot speak freely, I’m not alone”. But PandaLabs is warning that it is back on Facebook; and it is simplicity itself. If you cannot speak freely because an adult or guardian is nearby, just type or mention the number ‘9’, followed by ’99’ when the coast is clear.
