Welcome to Viewchat! Viewchat (the “Service” or the “App”) has made it possible for various people around the world to use this App not minding their language diversity or beliefs.

Respect all users

Viewchat provides a place where you can interact with people from various nationalities, races, and cultural and religious backgrounds beyond routine life using real-time video. We prioritize your enjoyment through interaction based on common interests. Viewchat is a reflection of our diverse community of cultures, ages, and beliefs. We’ve spent a lot of time thinking about the different points of view that create a safe and open environment for everyone. In Viewchat, people can freely express themselves and get inspiration from each other. We want Viewchat to continue to be an authentic and safe place for inspiration and expression.

If you’re honest, kind, and respectful to others, you’ll always be welcome here. If you choose not to be, you may not last. Our goal is to allow users to express themselves freely as long as it doesn’t offend others. Everyone is held to the same standard on Viewchat. We’re asking you to be considerate, think before you act, and abide by our guidelines both on and offline. To achieve this, building a community where everyone can feel safe is a key. Below is a list of our community guidelines that we ask all users to abide by. If any user violates these guidelines, we may impose restrictions on the user at any time according to our policies.

We’re a very diverse community. This means you should respect other people’s beliefs, interests, and property while on Viewchat. Viewchat takes a strong stance against hate speech, rude or abusive behavior, bullying, and misogyny. You should behave the same way on Viewchat as you would in real life. Additionally, we encourage all of our users to report anyone who does not follow these behavioral guidelines. As a community rooted in kindness and respect, we expect all of our users to respect each other, themselves, and the Viewchat staffs.

Viewchat reserves the right to investigate and/or terminate your account without a refund of any purchases if you have violated the guidelines, misused the service, or behaved in a way that Viewchat regards as inappropriate or unlawful, including actions or communications that occur on or off the service. In addition, in certain instances, we may terminate your account for violating any of our supplemental terms. In the event that you violate these rules or our Guidelines, your authorization to use the Service will be automatically revoked.

Below is a list of our community policies. If you violate any of these policies, you might be banned from Viewchat. Seriously, don’t make us swipe left on you—because there will be no do-overs once we do. We encourage you to report any behavior that violates our policies and read up on our Safety Tips.

Viewchat is NOT FOR:

1. Child Sexual Exploitation, Abuse and Nudity

Originally, we set a limit on the age of the Service’s usage. Your age will be changed by Viewchat legal department when it is believed that you created an account with a false age. Is Viewchat a sound App for children? The App is usually used for chatting and flirting. Despite what others might think, most users are still of the opinion that it is not suitable for children. Therefore, we do our best to minimize risk elements which minors might encounter. We strictly prohibit the minor under the age limit from the service and strongly restrict content which can negatively affect minors.

We strongly discipline not only sexual exploitation, but also suggestions of illegal acts against minors. As such, we do not allow images of unaccompanied minors in a profile. If you want to post photos of your children, please make sure that you are in the photo as well. If you see a profile that includes an unaccompanied minor, encourages harm to a minor, or depicts a minor in a sexual or suggestive way, please report it immediately. Once again, we strongly restrict content which encourages minors to inappropriate behavior.
