Our Review:

AlloTalk Review August 2019

AlloTalk is a relatively new social and messaging app designed for teens (13 to 19 years old). It is primarily a chat site with fewer functions and features than most social media platforms nowadays, but definitely one with more services than other chat sites of the same kind. It is similar to Omegle, except that you can create a permanent account.

The platform claims to be the safest online chat community for teenagers. However, we found reports indicating that older folks may log in and interact with minors.

Hence, the question now: Is AlloTalk really what it claims to be? Does it provide your teen with a safe online community? 

Sign Up Process

  • Only takes less than 30 seconds to register
  • Create an account via Facebook or Twitter
  • You can log in as a member or as a guest
  • No verification process for authenticity check
  • No need to answer long personality tests
  • Guests may also access the features
AlloTalk Sign Up

You need to have a Facebook or Twitter account to be able to register to AlloTalk. Your username and password for these sites will be your username and password for AlloTalk. The site shall also receive your public photo and display it as your AlloTalk profile picture. You can edit or delete such information, nevertheless.

There is no other option to register. You can log in, however, as a guest where you only need to provide a username and check a captcha box. As a guest, you can still edit your profile information and join the different chatrooms. You may as well manage your settings.

The only difference between a member and a guest is that the former can send friend requests to others. Guests do not have the privilege to do so.

Profile Information

  • Profiles of male users are not that detailed
  • Female users fill out their profiles completely
  • Profiles show if a member is a guest, a user, or a VIP
  • You can see the last login date of the profile owner
  • Most members post a photo of themselves
AlloTalk Female Profile View

Your profile consists of the following information:

  1. About Me – where your age, gender, and country are displayed. There is also a box where you can write something about yourself.
  2. Friends List – gives you the complete list of the members who have added you or you have added as a friend.
  3. Ignore List – gives you the complete list of the members you chose to ignore.
  4. Options – where you can utilize your settings, including your language, set your timezone, modify your sounds, set your private chat options, arrange your theme, and add a username color.
  5. More – where you can edit your email, change your password, or delete your account.

If you check, however, another member's profile, these are the only ones you will see:

  1. About me – where their age, gender, and country are displayed. You will also see their description of themselves.
  2. Friends List – where you can see the complete list of friends of the profile owner. 
  3. Info – where you can see when that member last logged in, the language he/she speaks, his/her timezone, and the theme he/she is using.
  4. Add Friend – the button you need to click if you want to add him/her as a friend.
  5. Ignore – the button you need to click if you want to ignore that person (so he/she won't bother you anymore).

Going over the profiles of most members, we noticed that the male teens don't usually complete their profiles. They only indicate the necessary information about themselves – nothing more, nothing less. The girls, on the contrary, are very open. They obediently fill out the about me box, sharing what they like and hate.

Contacting Members

  • There are eight chat rooms you can join
  • You can send a private message to any user
  • Some chat rooms are active; some are not
  • There is a VIP chat room where only VIPs can join
  • Members are keener to join chat rooms than send private messages
  • You may send images, GIFs, videos, and links
AlloTalk Message

There are two ways to communicate to other users: chatrooms and private chat. You can send a private conversation for free, but there is no guarantee that you will receive a reply. It seems like the members are more into getting involved in the chat rooms than doing private communication.

Upon checking the messages in the chatroom, we saw that there are no foul conversations. There are some who uses words such as sh*t, as*hole, and f*ck, but they really aren't that rude. They only use such words as an expression. The teenagers seem to be well-behaved.

The Chat Rooms

Unlike other chat sites that offer hundreds of chat rooms, AlloTalk only offers eight. They are:

AlloTalk Lobby
AlloTalk Teen Chat Room
AlloTalk Quiz Room

Teen Room

The Teen Room is the general chat room where anyone can join. Teenagers here usually talk about random topics, such as things they have experienced for the day.

Flirt Room

This is the chat room for those who are looking for either a serious date or a quick fling. The moderators claim that this room is highly monitored.

LGBT+ Teens

AlloTalk welcomes teenagers of all colors. They have a special room for teens who are part of the LGBT+ community. Most users here talk about their feelings.

Staff Room

The Staff Room is solely for moderators. As a user, you may not enter this chatroom even if you are a VIP.

Quiz Room

You can enter this chat room to play and earn points. A bot called Quizbot asks a question and whoever gets the right answer shall earn a specific amount of points. There is no indication, however, what the points are for.

Gay Teen

This room is primarily for gay teens who want to find a community where they can feel that they belong. However, it's a bit inactive compared to the other rooms. It seems like the members are more likely to join the LGBT+ Teens chatroom.

Lesbian Teen

The Lesbian Teen chatroom is for teenage girls who identify themselves as a member of the third gender. However, just like the Gay Teen chatroom, it seems like the members are more fond of joining the LGBT+ Teens chatroom.

VIP Chat

This is the chatroom for those who availed of the VIP Membership. You may not merely enter the room unless you pay for the fee.

Special Features

  • Send smileys and GIFs
  • Send a video or a YouTube link

Mobile App

  • App version looks clean as it is compactly arranged
  • Has a friendly user interface with smooth navigation
  • Images, GIFs, videos, and links load quickly
AlloTalk Mobile App

AlloTalk seems to have given so much importance to their mobile application. We can say that the app is far more convenient to use than the full website. You can use the platform anytime, anywhere, at ease.

If you check the customer reviews on Google Play, you will see that there are a lot of reviewers who have given it a positive rating. They also say that they like it better than the website version. However, there are still those who feel like the app could use some improvements.

Real Life Review

"I am a parent of two kids. One is a teenager who is already 15. I found her once smiling while using her mobile phone so I simply sneaked out behind her and checked what she was doing. I saw that she's using this AlloTalk chat site. Later that evening, I did my research about the app. I tried to log in using a fake Facebook account. First thing I thought: lax security. But when I tried to "disguise" as a teen and "mingled" with the other teenagers, they all seem to be kind and gentle. I had no rude or awkward encounters. There were no indecent proposals. They are all just kids talking about growing up. So I just talked to my kid and told her to be careful when joining anything that the internet can offer. It's okay to join chat sites, I said. But be careful and always tell me if you sense that something is going off. She just smiled and told me, "Thanks, mom! I really appreciate that." I felt happy and somehow relieved. Talking to her was a good thing. I actually learned that technique from AlloTalk's blogs." - Martha, 42

Summary

Teenage years is probably the most challenging yet most exciting period in anyone's life. It is the stage where you start experiencing various changes – physically, mentally, and emotionally. It is where you start to become curious about life and all it has to offer.

However, it is also the period where you become sexually-aware. Thus, if your actions lack enough adult supervision and guidance, chances are, you might end up going the wrong way towards adulthood.

Relatively, AlloTalk aims to be the good cop that can help you travel the road using the brighter path. It seems to be a good chat site for teenagers looking for a community where they feel like they belong. As a plus, it has lots of unique features that other chat sites do not offer.

The only downside, probably, would be its lax security. Our research shows that anyone can indeed join the site. There is no process to verify the real age of users attempting to enter. Nevertheless, the security measure that can surely combat this is the cautiousness of a real teenage user and that of his/her parents.

AlloTalk is purely a social messaging app. It might suit your taste if you are not into dating or anything similar to that. However, if you are looking for one that might land you to "teenage love," you might want to check dating apps  where dating is the real game.
