  • Unlike "no problem" which means "It's not a problem", "no worries" could mean many things so it is mostly a meaningless phrase by itself. Context is critical. It could mean "I'm not worried" if someone says "sorry you're going to the proctologist", or "don't worry because I've decided to not make a big deal of it" in response to "sorry I was late".
    Context 1: Person A: Sorry you're going to the proctologist. Person B: No worries [meaning I'm not worried he'll find anything]

    Context 2: Person A: Sorry I was late. Person B: No worries ["don't worry... I'm not going to fire you over it."]
