chatroom security

  1. I use a chatroom.
    recently someone showed stalker qualities so i changed my room name.
    I changed my room name but the problem that i have is when i log in( he uses mirc) and he knows it is me because he sees my location and ip address,is there any way of changing my ip and location so i can still chat without him knowing it is me?
    thanks

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    You could try using a proxy server, that would alter your IP address.

    You could also contact the site admin and tell them about your concerns.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Sorry to say, you're experiencing the hazards of chat rooms!

    Be safe and drop your association and move to IM to a selected group of
    KNOWN acquaintances.
