To prevent random people from joining your room there are several possibilities:

  • Only allow users that are listed in /cs access #chan list (most secure):
/cs set #chan restricted on
    • see /cs help access
    • see /cs help restricted

Be aware that the following methods don't protect empty channels, see also /cs help set mlock .

  • Set a channel key ("password"):

type /mode #chann +k key. You'll want this key to be different to the password you set when registering your channel. If people want to join your channel, they must type /join #chan key (or you must have &promptChannelKey=1 in the URL of your widget). If this is not persistent for you, type /cs set #channel_name mlock +k[other modes here] key

  • Make the channel "invite only"
