Ignore and Banning

How to ignore a user.

If you stumble upon a user who's making you feel uncomfortable, you may click their name and click "Ignore", or if you are in a private chat with them, type /t. This prevents the user from sending messages to you and unless you're a moderator or higher, you can't see any messages they send in chat.

Note: Ignore only lasts 12 hours.

If the chat you are on has any rules against harassment, you may contact a staff member and report their behaviour.

Se tudo isso falhar, você sempre tem a capacidade de encontrar um outro chat em

Hacking Threats

xat has implemented technologies to try and keep your personal identifiable information safe from malicious users. All of your personal information is secured on our own servers not accessible to other users. It is important to never click on links that a malicious or even normal user has presented to you. They are likely trying to Phish you. We have confidence that by following this guide and using sensibly, you will be protected against hackers.

Inappropriate Language

Masked inappropriate language.

If somebody is using bad language, you may ignore them to stop receiving these messages. You can also click your name, and check "Hide inappropriate words". This will automatically replace any bad word with symbols and a gray background, to show that a bad word was used. Clicking this symbol will show the bad word, so only click if you are comfortable with viewing inappropriate words!

Chats Inapropriados

Se você encontrar um chat que tem conteúdo impróprio no fundo, descrição, ou em qualquer parte do chat, por favor, confirme que é uma violação dos nossos termos de serviço, e se assim, clique em "Inappropriate" no canto inferior direito da página e preencha as informações. Isto irá enviar um relatório para o xat, e vamos tomar as medidas adequadas.

Inappropriate Profiles

If you find an inappropriate profile, click "Inappropriate" at the top right, and fill out the form. If they have an advanced profile (using me power), then use the popup menu at the bottom left and, again, click the "Inappropriate" option.

This will send a report to xat where it will be dealt with accordingly, with no further contact to you.
