A couple of years ago, when online chatroom services were highly popular and the only means of online social activity, Chatstep was one of the forerunners of online chat services. With its ease of use and highly customised chat guidelines, Chatstep used to be one of the go-to platforms for creating and joining different chatrooms with specific interests.
Today Chatstep is still popular in the countries of the United States and India. And it has been the center of a number of controversies as the platform was used by pedophiles and unlawful users who lured and exchanged child pornography. Because of this, the people behind Chatstep are actively monitoring all chats happening on their site, and are proactively banning abusive users permanently.
