LOS ANGELES, April 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Chatforfree.org has released details of an increase in encryption to combat a little known but apparently prevalent hacking problem in video chat rooms.
Justin Miller a security expert from Chatforfree.org explained that webcam hacking occurred when a user's private chat was compromised. Mr. Miller further explained that while there had been no reports as yet on chatforfree.org it was a prudent measure for prevention as reports had leaked from other websites that users had been recorded and then subject of black mail attempts.
Chatforfree.org spokesman Justin Miller further explained that hacking, ddos'ing and packet manipulation which was widely used by online gamers to cheat and obtain higher scores were just some of the threats that they had encountered over the years.
Providing an anonymous social network where users are not required to use real names brings a very diverse range of random users and some very lively interaction. Justin went on to explain that this was in essence how chatforfree.org came into existence with freedom of speech as a mandate.
Mr. Miller noted there were very few chat services with video or web cams for that matter some ten years ago when we started and it's a testament that we still exist and our loyal users have stuck with us. Considering the competition with Global giants with the likes of Facebook and Google all offering social networks and video chat just to still be here is a buzz he laughed. Being the little guy's makes us work harder on innovation and being responsive to our users. We have totally integrated our desktop and mobile chat with our android app so users can communicate on any device across platforms with enterprise HD cams.
Mr. Miller expanded on how Chatforfree.org initially started as a singles site and then grew up quite fast with users from all countries. Someone who is looking for an online affair certainly doesn't want to use their real name in most cases and we don't feel it's our duty to ask. Some Chatforfree.org users have been single and joined the site over 10 years just to chat and have some fun but ended up in relationships or even married. We don't consider ourselves a dating site but we do have all the elements, ChatForFree.org can be anything to a user wants it to be.
