ICQ is a popular instant messaging client, which was first developed by the Israeli company Mirabilis, which was acquired in 1998 by AOL.
The first version of the program was released in November 1996 and ICQ became one of the first Internet-wide instant messaging services.
The name ICQ stands for the phrase "I seek you".
ICQ is provided free of charge and can be downloaded and used with a generic "UIN", which was first invented by Mirabilis, as the user name assigned to each user upon registration.
The meaning is either "Universal Internet Number" or "Unified Identification Number".
