What would you say to show you’ve understood?

  1. I get it.

  2. I got it.

I think both are interchangeable; can any native speaker help me out?

It's almost the same, no difference.

Grammatically, I get it is Present simple, while I got it is Past Simple.

Usually, A British English speaker would say "I've got it". (Thanks @Kate Bunting)
