Omegle’s chat site’s catch phrase, "Talk to strangers!", says it all.
As parents, we’re always telling our children not to talk to strangers, but now there’s a site that actually encourages strangers to chat.
Omegle is a website/app that pairs random strangers for live text or video chats. Users choose ‘Text’ or ‘Video’ chat and the page states how many users are currently online. Chats start out anonymous however users are often asked for and share personal information.
For more information please read the excellent advice leaflet from National Online Safety and click on the link from a recent BBC investigation highlighting the dangers of this website. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-56085499
