What the frig?!?

What's up with the ads? I can't chat with out a freaking ad popping up. A once promising great chat app is now total crap!!!

Update....the ads have calmed now but still are annoying when chatting and the ad takes over entire screen and once you exit it pal either loses connection or freezes all together...

Another update... what happened to vids? I can't video chat with anyone anymore? People tell me they try to send and it says I'm mobile and using another pal version... I have the most updated version.... annoying

Not as advertised

Have been using this forum since yahoo closed its chat back in 2012. This program has a lot of trolling. Paltalk was one of the first social networks created prior to public use of the internet for self contractors for the US government. There is an authoritative influence on this program whom are called redhats and use red colored user names. They are supposed to be there for the sole purpose of technical support and to keep trolls from taking over and hacking its users, However these redhats are trolls themselves and hackers. This program should be used with caution and don’t easily trust other users or give out any personal information. There have been cases on the program where individuals have been egged on to commit suicide and sadly a couple people have done so on their webcams. This program is not as it is advertised.

Horrible Interface

App keeps losing connection, while talking on the mic you suddenly hear someone else’s voice because you are somehow “Paltalk magic” lost the mic LOL this app is a total joke and the back office or whoever is responsible for that team doesn’t have a clue. They replied saying: it is a connection issue from your side ( I was like ohh ok LOL), this app is really terrible and makes you lose your temper.

***UPDATE*** few months passed, 30 emails and yet, this app keeps getting worse and worse. I use other apps and never experience what this evil app has of devilish and evil things. Has so many bugs, bad connection (I run 1gb of speed), the developers of this app are a total joke. They cannot figure out or come up with a working app. Shame shame shame and shame on them.

Again, I apologize you are running into technical difficulties. May I ask you to please open a ticket with us at We will be happy to assist you
