If your after a quick jolly and are attached/unattached this is definitely a great site.
If you want a clean conversation and have a moral compass then I'd avoid like the plague.
For people wanting to make friends have an intelligent meaningful connection you'll find it demoralising.
In my opinion chatwi is pretty vile and if your not like minded get abused for not wanting to "play".

I'v done nothing wrong on the site. I've been polite and not abusive or rude. But it's banned me for the third time this week for 48 hours. I think it's something to do with sending messages too quickly as a caution against scammers. But that's a bit rich as the site hosts scammers posing as women. I had 27 messages from them in 15 minutes one evening. Also, click on 'chat history' and it will lock out for over a minute. Many people can't load images as it asks for points. More fool them if they pay. Also, beware of the awful, clunky beta version.

This chat site is full of old men preying on young girls for sex. It has no moderator and it's a sick site with a bunch of old dirty people. It needs to be shut down.

There seems to be a lot of closed-minded negitive woman posting reviews but if you're looking for a chat or a bit of fun its perfect. I got the app because real people suck and i am having a blast to be honest these apps are not for people looking for a relationship. To do that you have to go outside. Lol

I contacted about 8 to 12 people in the first day of being on the site. Everyone of them tried scamming money in some sort of way. Thats all the site is used for. Also to many ads sent to get you to go to another site. Blocked so many scammers

On the face of it, it doesn't appear to be too bad - there's no large group chat room so you don't get plagued by keyboard warriors having it out among themselves. However that's where the good stuff ends.
If you are very patient then you may get someone who is a genuinely nice person to talk to. That is a big if.
The site is plagued with scambots advertising sex sites, and seem to fire off at everyone, ironically one actually says "Fed up with spamming and bots?" which made me laugh.
You cannot even register a name without going VIP (I'm not paying for that thanks), so if you do meet someone there worth talking with then you have no chance of ever finding them again.
The "newer" version is plagued with issues - the login screen to that won't let you select a region of your country, then fails because you haven't filled it in so you log in on the old interface and it randomly sends you to one or the other. The time-out on the old interface is quick, you can be afk for a very short space of time, and poof, gone. Share a picture, the site jams.
There is absolutely no moderation - a number of the usernames are actually bordering on advertising illegal acts. The report/block system is a complete farce - I've had the same person explicitly describing an illegal act, and no matter how many times I report it, it comes back - and of the report options, there is no "Report illegal activity" option. I am 100% sure that this disappears into a black hole as no action ever seems to be taken.

E-Chat has been taken offline due to similar issues - this site should be next.

This site is a nothing more than a bunch of pedophiles that allow them to share thier sick fantasies with eachother. As of 2020 it seems like all monitoring of this site is abandoned, there are no admins or moderators to ban these people, and what makes it worse is that there are underage people going on this site, often using the name "UA" which means underage. You can often run into
Pedophiles that don't even hide the fact that they are perverts, often using names like "prv" or "ped" if admins were in place, these would be obvious indicators that these people are in engaging in illegal activity. I posed as a underage girl, just to see how long it takes for people to message me and it takes less than 30 seconds and all the messages I received were sexual in nature, some were saying "your underage that's so hot" and often they would send of picture of their gentiles. This site is nothing but a illegal pedophile ring where the images of children are traded. Something has to be done about this site, I tried to contact the creators of this site and I got no reply, so it looks like pedophiles will continue to go here unless this site gets permanently taken offline, sites like Chatstep recognized this issue and the creators deleted thier site permanently after finding out child porn was being exchanged. Looks like all the pedophiles from chatstep just moved on to this site. Shame

The monitors are completely out of control. Anyone who wants to have a decent chat and blocks the sponsored paid sex ads becomes automatically targeted and banned. The police should shut this site down. They allow the dating site Ashley Madison--a site that encourages married people to cheat on their spouses--to advertise on their site. This really says it all. Inane supervision, banning of legitimate people. However 14 year olds are allowed free access.

The site is well designed and easily acccessble. But it has two versions: the standard and the beta. It's pot luck which will load. The beta version is slow, clunky, doesn't load image files very well and the contacts list overflows such that names overlap. The standard one is fine until you click 'chat history'. Then it locks out for a minute. When you log on, you will be inundated by female profiles selling you porn sites. But the main problem is that the site will block you for for 48 hours for no apparent reason. It is probably because you have tried to contact too many profiles in too short a time. Avoid it.

People especially, men think all woman are eager to be greeted with some form sexual suggestion, like a Message I once received, "hey slut, bend over so I can f... k u from behind" and to many others to even mention, and that they are eager to receive or be greeted with some form of pornographic image, and there are so many men who clearly think all woman who are on a chat site are really eager to see what is going on in their pants, I'm sure most woman have seen more male private, when they are on some chat site, than the busiest prostitute have ever seen.
When a woman tell a guy who do these things that she doesn't appreciate what they just send or suggested, then the woman are called a stuck up $#*! or a Nun, and that she need to live a little, but if those guys don't have morals, don't assume everyone else doesn't have, and stop trying to convince a woman to lower her values and morals.

How does those men's heads work, some clearly don't think with their brain in their skull.

What men do to woman on a chat site can be classified as sexual harassment, which is a criminal offense.

The people on chat sites doesn't care about rules the site have, they do what they want, Wish the moderators of the site ban those who break the rules, but if a person tell someone who send nasty messages or images to leave them alone, then they block and report you, and then the person who are actually on the site for normal non sex related chat, gets banned, and that isn't fair.

I have used it on and off for 3 years now. But ever since they added their premium membership quality has gone out window. Spambots using premium accounts ignore the block and igore commands. Every time an add pops up get virus scan alert saying website blocked becaus trojan. And regularly have guys asking me for nude picks of my underage daughter

They all say you can talk about everything but they all want one thing or maybe two things. To get off while chating and getting off on your daughter or their own daughters. Alot of them change user names daily or use multiple usernames at one time. But they are all sick people and you agree in beginning to keep it clean but seems nobody cares.

Sick, sick, sick people.

They say they moderate bad names/foul language, they don't. Sad, sick men who have open season on women... If you're female and defend yourself, they ban you.

If you're female there's zero reason to visit this site. Save your time, energy and effort.

I've seen many males users over 30 looking for underage girls. I reported them, but they are still on the site. I've seen "Wantundr4gegirl" (46 male) at least 5 times.

I've seen many underage chatters such at "4t33nCurious"

This site has a warning when you first log in that inappropriate screen names and inappropriate conversations will cause the user to be banned. If this is the case, how are they enforcing it when Wantundr4gegirl" is on the site more than 5 times looking for chatters like "4t33nCurious" and there isn't a moderator to kick him out? Bans last 48 hours max, so if this pedophile is banned, he'll be back in 2 days.

This site is supposed to be for anything but it's just guys trying to have cyber sex or get you to switch on your cam or send you pics of porn. They're all cheating on their wives and gfs but at least theyr'e honest about that bit.
Avoid this site at all costs

I've been using this site for a couple of months. I've been shocked by the amount of people who are forcing others to have sexual chat with them.

There are so many guys who told me they sent me pics of Foods or other random stuff when we were on the topic of those things that aren't sexual. But it turned out to be nudes, even when I have informed them at the beginning of the convo that I'm not looking for anything sexual.

Guess who gets blocked?
Yep, it's me. Since I'm not agreeing to do any of those sick stuff they want to do, they block me.
I've sent chatiw emails and what do they do? Nothing
And mind you there is a period until you can be unblocked. I've tried ignoring them but they still end up blocking me when I don't respond to their texts. So people who actually wants conversations are being blocked while the weirdos and pedophiles are staying and having fun.

Shouldn't chatiw make a rule that they have to prove someone did something by screenshots like offensive words or sending nudes in order to block them?

There are a lot of underage girls and other grown ass people promoting underage photo sharing. In france and germany location. The site should creat an algorithme that control image sharing and report whenever there are underage image sharing. Even in their name it say PEDO!

Over the past summer, I was bored and became curious about all of the hype created around online chat sites. Since there's no pressure to sign up, I figured I'd try my luck and see if there were any decent, normal and mature human beings (preferrably Men because I am a straight Woman) that simply wanted to chat, and possibly form an online friendship. Nothing more.

No hook ups, No dirty talk, No filthy picture trading, and No Skype/Gruveo to watch them perform sexual acts!

I must say, I was sorely disappointed.

All I've ever run into are, extremely young or extremely old perverted males and females, who are desperate for sex and attention.

Many are married and have no shame in admitting it. Also, when I've told the young and old male perverts, as well as, creepy lesbians, that I'm not the least bit interested in them, they will either harass me or get their feelings hurt, and call me a nasty name, right before they disappear from the site, by making themselves invisible or logging out. That way, I can't respond or try to report their behavior.

One sick, demented, disgrace to the human race, called me the N word, simply because I told him I was not interested in dating Caucasian men, or turned on by him and his rude advances, and his overweight girlfriend's disgusting nude picture!

Trying to block these weirdos is hopeless. Each time, they were still able to bother me. Plus, many of the users are fake. When you click on a message, you'll see it's an ad/spam for Flivit, and other raunchy sites.

Initially, I came to this site seeking classy, mature and normal human beings to form a nice, cyber/online friendship with. No strings attached.

I quickly discovered, the administrators of Chatiw are nothing more than low life, misfit individuals that invite children, pedophiles, racists and other shady type characters, to use their site as a platform to promote their sick fetishes, unsavory lifestyles and overall, ignorance!
