In the title salt, C14H16N+·Cl−, the complete cation and complete anion are generated by the application of mirror symmetry. The mol­ecule is nonplanar, as seen in the dihedral angle between the terminal phenyl rings [70.92 (5)°]. In the crystal, N—H⋯Cl hydrogen bonds involving both aza­nium H atoms link the ions into a zigzag supra­molecular chain along [100].
