Consejos De Seguridad

IMVU makes it easy to connect with friends, new and old. As a product that connects you to people from around the world, it's important to remember that chatting with people you don't know could expose you to danger. As a product that is committed to user safety as our number one priority, here, are some common sense guidelines that you should follow when using IMVU:

  • Avatars aren't always who they say they are. Be careful about adding strangers to your friends list. IMVU avatars allow you to be yourself without exposing any personal information. While it's fun to connect with lots of IMVU friends from all over the world, avoid providing any information that could be used to personally identify you.
  • Be safe in Chat. If someone in a Chat says or wears something that you find offensive, abusive or inappropriate, click the "Report Abuse" button or close the Chat window. If the person continues to reach out to you, block them. IMVU takes abuse reports very seriously and will quickly take action. To block a user, please follow the steps below:
    1. Sign into your account.
    2. From your homepage go to Account, located in the upper right corner of your homepage next to your avatar name.
    3. Desplázate hacia abajo a la sección de privacidad y seguridad.
    4. In your Friends & User Settings, click on "Manage blocked users list".
    5. Introduce el nombre de avatar que quieres bloquear donde dice "Bloquear contacto" y presiona bloquear.
  • Tengo una Página Principal segura. IMVU te fomenta a construir tu identidad de IMVU alrededor de su avatar. Una buena manera de permanecer seguro en línea es mantener toda la información de identificación personal fuera de tu página principal (por ejemplo, tu nombre real, tu número de teléfono, dirección, nombres de pantallas de otros clientes de IM, o paradero específico). No des información personal de ningún tipo IMVU recomienda encarecidamente que no subas fotos tuyas. En su lugar, invierte tiempo en hacer que tu avatar represente quién eres y utiliza ese avatar en tus imágenes. Si se cruzas con una página principal de otro usuario que encuentras ofensiva, reportalo inmediatamente.
  • In-person meetings can be dangerous. Meeting up in the real world with people you meet online is *not* always a great idea. IMVU offers plenty of opportunities to meet your online friends in cool Chat Rooms. If you choose to meet an online friend in the real world, there are some very important rules to consider:
    • Conoce solo a la gente que sientas que conoces bien, que la hayas conocido desde hace mucho tiempo y solo con el permiso y conocimiento de tus padres.
    • Meet in a public place, such as a mall or coffee shop.
    • Ir con un padre o un hermano o amigo de 18+, (incluso si tú ya eres un adulto)
    • Asegúrate de que la persona que conocerás no esté sola, que venga con un compañero u otro adulto.
  • Be honest about your age. If you are under 13 and pretend to be older, IMVU will remove your account. If you are over 18 and pretend to be younger to contact underage users, IMVU will remove your account. If you are under 18 and pretend to be older to contact older users, IMVU will remove your account.
  • No IMVU staff member will ever ask for your password or email Don't fall for any scam that asks for your IMVU password or your personal email address especially if it comes to you from someone who claims to be an IMVU Staff member. IMVU Staff can easily contact you via the email address you used to register your account. If you change email addresses, please update your IMVU account.
  • Don't get hooked by a phishing scam. Phishing is a method used by fraudsters to try to get your personal information, such as your username and password, by pretending to be a site you trust. A common way IMVU users may have their accounts stolen is by logging in to a site that looks like IMVU but isn't. When logging in, always make sure the URL includes or that you are using the 3D Chat client downloaded from our site. Click here to learn more information from the Federal Trade Commission.
