Chat rooms are a very common place for scammers to operate. If you suspect you are trying to be scammed or someone else you know, please contact us immediately!
Protecting our younger members
As a parent, or guardian, it is important for you to understand how your teen communicates with other people online. It can be difficult to know when new websites come online, and how quickly your child will find and start using them to chat to people they do not know.
Before setting up Teenagers Chat I was shocked to see how many children there are in chat rooms across the world, and how easy it was for a random online stranger to exchange messages. Because there are so many chat room websites out there, that have not correctly implemented safety features to look after younger users, we have added different protective measures to make sure they are safe when using Teenagers Chat.
During different times of the day, we have verified VIP members who monitor our chat rooms. A Teenagers Chat moderator has the ability to delete information in the room, mute and kick users from the chat room if necessary. We also have verified admins who are invisible that also keep an eye on general member activity.
Unlike many chat rooms online, we do not allow users to exchange images in private unless they become a verified VIP member. This helps protect our younger members from sending and receiving images to people they do not know.
VPN And Proxy Connections
A VPN or Proxy connection is a commonly used online service, website or phone app that hides the users real IP address. We do not allow such connections in our chat rooms. Users found to be using this type of software are automatically banned from Teenagers Chat. Although some VPN connections are genuine and can be purchased as part of an Anti-Virus package, we strictly forbid users from hiding their true IP address. All incoming IP connections to Teenagers Chat are checked by a private company, before they are even allowed to access and connect to our chat rooms
If at anytime you would like your child's Teenagers Chat account deleted, please contact us through the main website contact form, where we will be happy to comply. We can also apply a ban to your IP address to stop him or her using our service again.
Monitoring your child's online behaviour and browsing habits can be difficult, and although we have implemented protective measures to Teenagers Chat, the best measures are always to make your child aware of dangers of being connected socially online.
