You must tell a family member or close friend if you are planning to use Chat Rooms. They only want to keep you safe and to do this, they need to know what you are doing and what Chat Rooms you are using. Decide on some rules together about what you should and shouldn’t be doing.
When you log into our Group Chat Room you should always make sure to use your MODJES username as long as you did not include part of your real name when you created it. This helps keep your real life identity safe from anyone else around.
The most important of these is to never give out your personal details. This means no telling people your real name, even just your first name. If there is someone unsavory in the chat room, they can start to use your name to gain your trust.
Other information that you absolutely must not give out are any details about where you live, you shouldn’t be telling people your actual address or even which town you’re from as that gives them the chance to say they live near you and try to gain your trust. You also shouldn’t tell them which school you go to or which company you work for. It wouldn’t take a genius to track down a school or office.
Don’t be fooled, keep your phone number a secret. Keep your email address a secret. You might think that it can’t do any harm to let someone have your email. But they might start sending you pictures that make you feel scared or uncomfortable. They could even send you a computer virus in the email.
This shouldn’t be a problem because you won’t give anyone your email address, will you? But, if for some reason you did give it out and you find someone is sending you emails with mean or rude pictures, don’t open them and block them immediately from your email.
Although our site offers its members a One-on-One chat feature, we would encourage you to stay in our Group Chat Room while using the MODJES website because there will be other people there. If you are in a private chat alone with someone, there is no one to help you out. If you are in our Group Chat room and someone says anything which makes you feel uncomfortable, don’t respond back. Log off and block that individual from your profile section.
Don’t ever agree to meet someone in real life that you have met in a chat room without first discussing it with your family or close friends. If you do ever decide to meet someone, make sure that it is in a public place and make sure that a family member or close friend go with you. If someone suggests that you go alone, it should set alarm bells ringing. Make sure that you follow all of these rules and you should be able to enjoy using Chat Rooms.
If you feel comfortable meeting that stranger in person by yourself, please make sure to read our DATING SAFETY TIPS beforehand.
