YES! - Even if you are in a pivate room or the user says they are not recording you. You wont even know if they are recording you or not. Imagine that someone can just point a camcorder at their computer screen to record you. You can ALWAYS be recorded.
NO! - Giving out your contact information is a dangerous thing to do. Even if you think you know who the person is, they can be pretending to be someone else.
NO NO NO!! - It is extremely dangerous to meet someone in real life that youhave only talked to on the computer. If a user of tinychat asks to meet you in real life, IMMEDIATELY close the web browser and do not contact that user again. If they try to contact you further, IGNORE THEM. Always remember tobe skeptical of users. People will often impersonate someone else by showing a recorded video. Sometimes people ask the person to "hold up 3 fingers" to prove that the person on camera is really who they say they are.
IMMEDIATELY CASE SPEAKING WITH THE PERSON. You should immediately contact the police. DO NOT GIVE THIS PERSON ANYTHING! Anything you give them they will just continue to use to blackmail you further. Remember, you can always be recorded.

The most common scams are:
Someone posing as a model or talent scout- WATCH OUT! They just want to get you to send them pictures or videos.
Someone threatening to hack your computer unless you send them pictures - Simply close the tinychat window right away
Someone claiming to be a celebrity- Make them prove it on camera by holding up a symbol and always be skeptical if they only talk through chat and not on video
Camera bans are issued by a Tinychat Administrator when a user is violating our Terms of Service. These bans will last for 72 hours after they are issued and will not be removed. We currently have no appeal process for bans so emails about ban removals will be deleted and unanswered. You can receive a 72 hour ban even if you are not broadcasting.
Room closures are issued by a Tinychat Administrator for a number of different reasons. Some of the reasons are, but not limited to:

-You have moderators assigned but they are not controlling the room or are encouraging ToS violations.
-Your room name has an offensive or inappropriate word in it.
-Your room was made solely to violate our ToS.
