The https://webchat.freenode.net/ IRC client has an "auth to services" option. A quick google search does not reveal what this means.

What does this option do, and when should I use it?

1 Answer 1


The "Auth to Services" option lets you log in when you have registered with Freenode's NickServ, which reserves your nickname and provides other privileges.

This SuperUser post has a guide for signing up with NickServ with webchat if you haven't done so before.
