IRC4Fun’s Cloaks & VHosts

IRC4Fun offers hostmask/IP cloaking to both un-registered Guests as well as registered (and identified) users.

By default, your hostname (or IP address) is hidden or cloaked.  It will look something like IRC4Fun-6c821u.somehost.net

Registered (and identified) users will have a VHost, which looks like users/AccountName

Our TheLounge client also allows you to never miss a thing in your channels or private messagesyou will always be connected to IRC4Fun!  You can use TheLounge in Desktop or Mobile browsers and always pick up where you left off.*

NOTE: By clicking links posted by users in channels or private messages, you will reveal your real hostname/IP address — only click on links that you trust, FROM users you trust.
