What is 123 Free Chat? Learn more about our online chat room

Back in the early days of Java Chat Rooms and Flash chat, I first got on my first chat room. Signing on and seeing people interact, throw jokes, tease others, and even some users who had crazy skills (they were hackers). It sounds like a scene out of a movie, but this was not that long ago. Java chat rooms and the many networks that were spawned from that era abruptly came to an end. With them, so many talented and friendly individuals also went.

As time went by, the bigger chat rooms like Chat Avenue, 321Chat, and Chatib all developed their own chat software to continue leading the online chat room market. During this era, we've kept our core values and goals the same: to create an atmosphere with a fun chat room that can provide things like traditional text chat, audio chat, video chat, webcam capabilities, and mobile stability so you can easily connect on your smartphone device, like an iPhone or Android. Even smart tablets like the iPad can be used to chat on our network.

You might be wondering what do these features cost

Our chat rooms are 100% free. They're so free that we don't even see a profit. We don't want to profit off of our platform. We're much more interested in letting our free chat network grow naturally. Our chat software is free for everyone to use, and the only time you'll see ads is when you're navigating certain pages through our website. You'll never see ads popping up or anchoring onto the screen while you're having a public or private conversation.

You're probably wondering how or who pays for this. Our sponsors do. The only type of ads you'll see on our website are Google Ads. We will never expect you to make a payment or give any type of financial information. We just want you to enjoy our network with us.

Our chat rooms are designed to be fully functional on mobile devices, ensuring that you can connect with friends whether you're using an iPhone, Android, or even a tablet like the iPad. Our mobile chat features are optimized for speed and usability, so you never miss a moment.

So what's all this mean?

This means that if you're a person from the age of 16+ (we allow 13+ with parental consent) and you're looking to make friends, escape from the stress, pressure, and headaches of daily life to a place where you can truly be yourself in a non-judgmental environment, then this is the place for you. Check out our chat rooms list to see which chat room you'd like to chat in.

Our American chatters will find a welcoming community ready to engage in conversations on various topics. Whether you're looking to chat about local events, share your interests, or simply meet new people, our USA chat rooms are here for you.

Yes, our chat rooms are moderated. Yes, you can say "bad words" if you really want to, but remember we do enforce and respect our rules. You can say and share whatever you'd like in the appropriate environment. Some rooms on our network have zero tolerance for bad words, bad nicknames, bad behavior, provocative statements, trolling, and whatever else they deem appropriate.

This is done to make sure the quality of our chat room is always top tier. This means if you're a person looking to be treated with fairness, integrity, and respect, then you're at the right place. 123 Free Chat is an idea between a few friends, a small budget, and inspirations from the larger chat networks we've visited. We are in no way affiliated with any other chat network. You can see a list of our partners in our chat forums. Our chat room is here for everyone.

What about mental health?

Mental health has been a hot topic for the last few years. While a lot of people are undiagnosed, this can lead to misunderstanding from not knowing what episode is occurring and what is causing it. People with bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, OCD, social anxiety, and many other disorders can have episodes that require social activity to stimulate progress towards real-world situations so that coping, learning, and understanding can occur.

While we're not trained professionals, our staff does take a vested interest in being able to provide a safe environment for people suffering from disorders to be able to communicate and have a safe place to turn to so that through social chat, their disorders can be managed. During an episode or physical altercation, the best thing to do is to dial 9-1-1. In any case of a mental episode, in order for all parties to stay safe, we recommend contacting proper authorities. We are not a platform that can provide immediate assistance, but we will call for wellness checks for any guest that feels it's needed.

Ultimately, we want you to know that you can chat in our network and be confident that your well-being is always on our mind and prioritized during safety and staff meetings. We will do our best to learn if we're ignorant of certain things, and we will always be understanding.

Chat for everyone

For our friends in the UK, our chat rooms are a perfect place to meet new people from your local area. Join discussions, make friends, and connect with fellow UK chatters in a friendly and moderated environment.

I think this is all that's left to say about who we are, what our core goals are, where our values are, and what the future holds. We've weathered a lot of storms to be able to be here today and share our principles with you. We just needed to explain our purpose and explain what our foundation is built on. We want you to feel comfortable, safe, and secure on our chat network. We also want you to give us a chance to be your next favorite chat destination. Let's continue to create the best chat network on the internet. We're here to stay.
