Staying Safe in an Anonymous Chat Rooms: Tips and Tricks for Emerald Chat Users

The concern people have while chatting anonymously…

If you’ve been in Emerald Chat or any other anonymous chat rooms, the concern of someone breaching your privacy has probably crossed your mind once or twice, and while our team makes it their top priority to prevent data breaches that might allow unwanted individuals to access your data, there are still things that you might do intentionally or unintentionally that will cause you to compromise vital personal information. This blog focuses on helping prevent yourself from leaking valuable pieces of information to someone whom you do not know and who may potentially have the intent to harm you in some way.

EC is secure, but malicious individuals always find a way…

While rarely being talked about in non-cybersecurity groups, the Yahoo data breach is the second largest data breach in all of human history, next to the data breach of an adult live-streaming website. According to Statista, around 3 billion accounts were compromised after the attack happened. Yahoo being one of the well-known web services providers is expected to have complex security systems in place, yet that system was still compromised. Understand that in Emerald Chat your security is our top priority, but if you meet someone who knows how to manipulate you, your last line of defense is yourself, this is why we will be talking about 5 tips that you can do to strengthen that line of defense. 

Tip 1: Protect Your Personal Information

The most talked about, and most crucial, tip is to NEVER EVER share your personal information with someone you don’t know and trust to a great extent. It’s okay to share general information such as age, gender, or things that you like so that you can kickstart a conversation, but whenever your chatmate starts to prod you with questions that force you to release very personal information, it is best to cool off and talk about another topic or just leave the conversation entirely. It’s better for that person to not like you than for you to potentially compromise your safety.

Tip 2: Be Aware of Other Forms of Cybercrime

While data breach is one of the most concerning cybercrimes that happen in the world, there are more cybercrimes a cybercriminal can do, an example of a cybercrime that happens mostly in anonymous chat rooms is cyber harassment and phishing. Among the two cyber harassment is the most popular, but being aware of these things is already a good layer of defense since if you know that you are being harassed, and especially if someone is trying to commit phishing on you, you will know to immediately avoid them. It is also best for you to report them so that they cannot harm other people as well.

Tip 3: Use a Secure Internet Connection

One of the best ways to prevent your data from being leaked is to make sure that your internet connection is secure. This means that if you are outside do not just connect to any random wifi network you find, and if you are in your home use a secure browser and security software. Emerald Chat also has its security measures in place, one of which you will most likely have seen before your browser loads into Emerald Chat, but it is still best to observe both of the security measures mentioned above. 

Tip 4: Use a Pseudonym

Using a pseudonym, or a nickname, is one of the easiest ways for you to protect your information in any anonymous chat room. This is because you are preventing strangers from knowing who you are before you are confident enough to share more information with them. Also, as a side note, anonymous chat rooms should be “anonymous” (it would not be in the name if it were not so), so you are just putting yourself at a disadvantage if you are using your real name when everyone else is using a pseudonym.

Tip 5: Be Mindful of Emotional Manipulation

Lastly, you should know that certain individuals are proficient at emotional manipulation and gaslighting and that there is no shortage of these individuals in any anonymous chat room, not even in Emerald Chat. That is why you should know if a person is being manipulative. Luckily for you, we’ve listed down 15 things to look out for when conversing with someone online, especially if it is an anonymous dating chat room.

In conclusion…

To recap, for you to remain safe in any anonymous chat room you must prevent yourself from sharing information, know the different kinds of cybercrime so that you can avoid them before they happen, use a secure internet connection, use a pseudonym, and lastly, you must be aware if someone is manipulating you. These five tips are general tips that you can use to help make your online chatting experience safer.
