Not open for further replies.


After you register and confirm your email address, login and you're shown a list of the current rooms on 321Chat.
You can enter any room simply by tapping it. See Room Specific Rules at the bottom of this page: https://www.321chat.com/rules/
You may be dropped into 'Lobby' if the room list does not appear.



You can edit your profile images and settings once you've registered.
Tap on the person image or letters associated to your user name on the top right to give you options.
Tapping the green check mark after your name allows you to change online status to Away or Busy.
Tap Leave room to go back to the room list.
Tap logout to completely disconnect from the chat rooms.

The envelope on the top right is your private message inbox. Inside there you can delete individual messages by clicking the X after them.
To completely clear your inbox, tap the trash can icon at the top.

Select Edit profile to make any changes to your profile.

Click the camera icons to add or change your profile photo or background photo.
Click on the X to remove the images.

Under the Account tab you can:
- edit 'Your info' which is your age and gender
- edit 'About me' which is where you can write a few words about yourself and is public to all chatters
- edit 'Mood' which is text that appears under your user name in the room user list
- edit 'Text color' which is the font color everyone will see your messages in (private message text remains the same at all times)
- edit 'Sounds' which turns on or off sounds for public room posts, private message notifications and username sounds, which is when someone tags your user name in the chat room. It will also appear highlighted to you
- change 'Theme settings' which allows you to choose between dark mode, lite mode and many more.

Under the Gift tab you can:
- view the list of gifts and number of each of those gifts which have been gifted to you by members

Under the More tab you can:
Manage friends: allows you to remove friends you've already added when in chat
Manage ignores: allows you to remove ignored users that you've ignored in chat
Private settings: choose between on, members only, friends only, off
- on : anyone can send you a private message
- members only : members who are registered can private message you. Guests cannot.
- friends only : friends you've added to your friend list can send you private messages
- off : no one can send you a private message. Staff may message you where required.
- IMPORTANT: ((EXTINCT, NO LONGER APPLIES)) When your private messages are off, you can still send private messages to members on your private message list. To prevent them from messaging you, tap the X to the right of the user name on the list of current private messages (whether read or unread). This gives you the option to have your messages of while still being able to chat with close friends in private. Members may still send you private messages but you will not receive notifications. You will see their message should you open a PM window with them.
Privacy settings: choose whether to publicly share your age, gender, location, friend list or gift list
choose your language, country and time zone
Login option:
login using your user name and/or email, or set to only allow logging in by email only. Email only is the most secure option as it's not publicly available

Change password:
