An Internet bot, also known as a bot, is a software application that runs automated tasks over the Internet.
In this instance the software would lure users to a malicious web address in an attempt to install a virus on the device being used.
The greeting message can be customised and will include the visitor's name.
The robot also won't issue a welcome greeting to the same user twice on the same day.
Having robot assisted private messaging can extend the reach of your interactive help system or automated moderation.
This add-on is available with chat plans for 50 or more users.
Several Pink News readers in the UK have reported conversations with what they thought were real guys, only to realise that they were bots.
The reader confirmed that he was talking to a bot after he sent the same message over and over and got the same responses each time.
The bot invites users to click on a link to a fake webcam site link, which installs a virus on some devices.
