Safety Policies

Recommended General Safety Measures and Parental Safety Controls At Chatingar, we prioritise the safety and security of our users. We have implemented the following safety policies and guidelines to ensure a secure environment for everyone.

Age Requirement

Chatingar is exclusively for users who are 18 years of age or older. It is strictly prohibited for individuals under 18 to use our site.

General Safety Measures:

a. Beware of Phishing:

Be cautious of any messages or links sent to you. Avoid clicking on suspicious links or sharing personal information with unknown users.

b. Choose Strong Passwords:

For registered users, selecting a strong and unique password is crucial. Avoid using easily guessable passwords or common words. Opt for a combination of random letters, numbers, and symbols to enhance password security.

c. Private Messaging:

Exercise caution when receiving private messages from other users. Be wary of individuals asking you to click on links, requesting money, or seeking personal information. If you suspect your profile has been compromised or encounter someone spreading malicious links, please contact us immediately.

Meeting and Dating People:

Your safety is our priority. We strongly advise against meeting anyone in person whom you have met online through Chatingar. Even if you believe someone is trustworthy, it is impossible to guarantee their true identity. Always inform your parents or guardians before making decisions about meeting people from the internet, and ensure they accompany you in a public setting. Beware of false promises, such as individuals claiming to be model agents or offering rewards for photos or meetings.

Use a Nickname:

When chatting online, it's essential to use a nickname that does not reveal your real name and does not attract sexual attention. Protect your privacy and personal information by maintaining anonymity. Here are a few suggestions:

Microsoft Windows:

Utilise the built-in parental control options available in Microsoft Windows. Access these controls through the "Control Panel" and "User Accounts and Safety" settings. Additional information can be found in Microsoft Account Family Settings.

Mac OS X:

Take advantage of the built-in parental controls offered by Mac OS X. Access these controls through your Mac OS System Preferences and the "Accounts" section. Please note that instructions may vary with Mac OS updates. As a parent or guardian, discussing internet safety and the potential risks with your children is essential. We recommend addressing the following topics: The importance of not sharing personal information online, regardless of how small or seemingly insignificant it may be. The risks associated with malicious links and computer viruses. The existence of adults pretending to be underage and potential dangers posed by individuals with harmful intentions. We are establishing specific online usage times to monitor your children's activity effectively. Placing computers in common areas, such as family rooms, rather than bedrooms, to facilitate monitoring and deter potential threats. We encourage you to conduct online research on internet safety for children. Various websites provide
