Minnit has a variety of features that help keep you and your users safe.

You can kick users as a warning in the chat, and you can ban users.

Banning users automatically bans their IP address, so they won't be able to return on a different account unless their IP address changes.

You can view more about moderation here.

You can also enable "Allow users to generate transcripts of chat messages & file reports to chat moderators?" in chat settings to allow your users to report messages and other content to you.

Account Passwords

Your account password should be kept personal when possible, unless you're using a shared account for members of your company. In a majority of instances, it's preferable to instead appoint additional owners to your chatroom, or grant permissions to users across your entire organization, allowing each person involved to have their own account with the relevant permissions.

Giving your account password out can allow users to amend or delete your chatroom, subscriptions, or even your account, without your knowledge or consent.

Moderators & Managers

Moderators and Managers should be trusted users. They are able to ban users and delete messages.

For best results, we recommend requiring users to register a proper account to your chatroom before they receive any higher ranks. This way, if they switch devices or clear their cookies, they will still be ranked in the chat. When possible, avoid giving "guest" users a rank, to prevent you from accidentally giving a rank to someone impersonating an existing moderator or manager.

By default, users cannot upload potentially harmful files, such as .exe files, unless they're an owner. You can amend the specific allowed filetypes in the Chat Settings menu — but, for a majority of situations, simply uploading images / GIFs is enough for a fun experience. Sending downloadable files through the chat should be reserved for higher ranks, and only if there is a need to send such files through the chat.

You can also set your chatroom up so that only users of a certain rank are able to send external URLs. This helps combat against spam and abuse.

Use SSO for added verification

If you own a website or blog, setting up Single Sign On is a great way to ensure you are chatting with users you know already exist in your community. This helps curb impersonation and allow you to maintain control over the account system at all times.
