You should always conduct your own research before using any internet chat rooms, but for your safety, we would strongly recommend against sharing personally identifiable information such as e-mail addresses, social media profiles, telephone numbers and physical locations when using this chat service.

Specifically in relation to IRC, IP addresses are an integral part of how users are identified on the IRC network. The address your connection to the IRC network originates from may be displayed to other users and may be logged by connected servers / devices. In most cases, having your IP address displayed in this way is of little or no consequence. This is because IP addresses of cable, DSL, and dialup users are not easily connected to individual subscriber identities without the cooperation of the service provider.
The most information someone is likely to be able to obtain in relation to an IP address is a rough estimate of geographical location, which may be very rough or fairly specific depending on how your provider chooses to allocate IP addresses.
