Turning local chat to "Off" does not stop it appearing in the main game window, only in the chatbox, and messages will appear in the chatbox regardless of settings.
This ensures your safety and privacy, where every text message you send is just between you and your chat buddies.
Our webpage is so much more than that.
Random Stranger Chats has only just been launched, but gives a great way to get connected with other stranger online.
