As soon as we land on the initial pages of ChatIW.me, we feel as though we have been transported back in time. It looks as though everything stopped in the mid-90s, when the first chat rooms appeared on the internet. There were simple tools than with a poor graphic interface that allowed you to connect with people from different cities and countries. There was not much to do apart from chatting, but at that time the experience was really exciting. Everything is still like this on ChatIW.me, except that nowadays it doesn’t sound as appealing as it once was.
The design of the initial page isn’t at all impressive. Moreover, the desktop version has some obvious technical problems that should be fixed as soon as possible. Accessing the chatroom or refreshing the page sometimes takes ages. Luckily, it has a mobile app that works a lot better. We really liked the fact that users can change the language at the bottom of the initial page quickly. For an entity that claims to connect people from every corner of the world, this is a crucial feature that we didn’t have back in the day.
How does it work?
Using ChatIW.me is very simple. Users have to provide a nickname, their age and their location. An email address is not required and there is no verification process. This means you don’t need to create an account, and each time you want to access the chatroom you can choose a different nickname. The downside of websites like this is that anyone can sign up and start chatting at any time, with the risk that someone might not be there with the best intentions.
According to the online reviews we read, some profiles might be fake. However, ChatIW.me is not responsible for any scam, since it states clearly that it cannot verify the authenticity of details provided by users. As a rule of thumb, we recommend our readers avoid sharing personal information and exercise caution if anyone asks them to move to a different website, which could well be a rip-off.
