A bit deceiving as they promote "FREE" but its' mostly unusable and to use any sort of chat on your WP install will end up on the $17 a month page so you'll end up wasting a bunch of time with the install, giving up your email for future spam. Very disappointing and not even a good deal for a basic chat plugin

I use Tidio since last year. It helped us to gain more orders. And it's possible to monitor online visitors country, visiting page etc.
