Privacy

Sharing of Data

With the little data that is collected none of it will be shared unless required by law. Under no circumstances will your data be sold.


Analytics

16chan collects some basic analytics data with the use of a libre tool called Matomo, only the first two hashes of user IP's are stored, in other words if your IP was 12.34.56.78, the Matomo servers would log it as 12.34.0.0. Furthermore, if your have 'Do Not Track' enabled in your browsers our analytics platform will respect it and not track any data.

Posting

Tripcodes

To use a tripcode, add a # in your name. After the #, add the password for the tripcode.

The server will apply a hash to the password and display the hashed password.

To use a secure tripcode, add ## in your name and a password. A secure tripcode will generate a random text to be displayed that will only be used if your password matches.


Role signature

If you wish to display your global or board role when posting, you can put #rs in your name, like a tripcode, case insensitive. This will prevent you from using a tripcode.

You can also enable an always use role signature rule in your account settings.
