This poses a risk to not only your child’s privacy, but to their personal safety.
One of the biggest concerns that arise with the use of Omegle is the encouragement to take the chat or conversation off of the site.
Users can start chats with their clothing on and then remove them.
Unfortunately, there is no way to enforce this behavior.
Many users will provide website links, KIK IDs, Skype user names, and phone numbers with the hopes that the individual will take the chat ‘offsite.’ Omegle, like many other websites can be an amazing way to communicate with others, meet new people and friends.
Like all websites and technology, or day to day offline activities, these can be good, safe and positive interactions or, if used in the wrong way, negative and unsafe.
This provides users with the opportunity to say or do anything in the hopes of not getting caught or not being on a monitored video chat.
Omegle chats in text will only be monitored in the event that an Omegle IP address has been flagged for spam.
