You might have to turn the chat on.

You've got probably shadow-banned, meaning banned from chats and forums. Maybe you insulted someone in a game and your opponrnt reported you and so the mods banned you from chats.

You can find more about it here:
lichess.org/qa/184/is-ban-in-the-chatforum-forever

Or you simply had the chat turned off. By clicking the tick-box next to where there is written "chat room" you can turn it on again. Probably it is because of this and not because you've been banned ;)

Wow, I thought I was going crazy. The same thing happened to me a couple days ago -- chat just disappeared. Hard to imagine I'd be shadow banned, since I never comment in chat. I literally have never made a single chat comment. So now for some reason I cannot even read the chat? Great.
