Sorry, if you’re not a teen, you can’t use the app.

Just swipe through profiles of other teens, and tap on their profile to chat. We’ll immediately send them a notification and your message. You can send your new friend customized messages with fun backgrounds, colors, smileys, GIFs, and more!

• You need to have a Facebook login to use ChatMeUp
• ChatMeUp is safe and secure; easily block other users from sending you messages
• You have to be between 13 and 19 to use ChatMeUp
• ChatMeUp is ad-supported, so you will see ads from time to time
