You cannot control who views any content you post on a PluPlay chatroom instance, as it is

are using. For example, any posts on a PluPlay room are available to all other users in
that vicinity and may be publicly distributed.
- Any content that you send directly to another user will be shared with that user. Users
can freely save or re-share any PluPlay content on and off our Services. Please don’t
post content or send messages you wouldn’t want others to save or share. In addition,
