In the Harry Potter books, a Muggle is a person who is not a wizard. Some Harry Potter fans also use the term to refer to non-fans.

In the Pottermore community, members would use the term "Muggle" to refer to their offline life outside of Pottermore, such as talking about their "Muggle life" or "Muggle Facebook" (their non-Pottermore Facebook identity).

Outside of Harry Potter, the term 'muggle' is used in the geocaching community - based on its meaning in the books - to refer to people who aren't cachers.
