Important Info About the Chat System

The chat window has a Quick Escape button so if you need to exit quickly, please click on it and you’ll be taken to Google.

The service is anonymous and we don’t keep any identifying information. After we chat, all messages are deleted. Web chat is recommended over text chat due to increased security and encryption.

After 5 minutes of inactivity in the chat window, the system will warn you and then disconnect you 1 minute later.
