Chat room ratings
Matrix Messenger contains chat rooms of different ratings. We use a system similar to the movie industry.

G rated rooms are not allowed to have foul language or nudity.
R rated rooms may contain foul language but no nudity.
A rated rooms may contain foul language and nudity.

Adult content filter
Adult content is not displayed by default and you will only be able to view a list of G and R rated chat rooms and categories.
To enable the listing of rooms that contain A rated content, click the 'Show adult and restricted rooms' button.
To disable the listing of adult content, click the 'Show adult and restricted rooms' button again.

WARNING - If you choose to view adult content you MUST be over the age of 18 and in compliance with any laws in your state or municipality.
