Standby for a seat means they can't assign u a seat. If your are high on the list u should get on the flight. Standy for upgrade means u are in line to get a better seat but things wont clear until closer to boarding time.

You should be able to get a standby boarding pass to get you through security if your app doesn’t give you one

It means you don’t have a confirmed seat on the flight. There should be a list of people waiting and a # of seats open on the standby list. If your position on the list <= the number of seats you’re good.
