There is a warning at the bottom of the website that Omegle video chats may be monitored.Unfortunately, while there is a promise that 24/7 monitoring will occur, there is the possibility of more video chats occurring than monitors.So, at any given moment, someone using Omegle video chat might simply end up with an Omegle nude video situation.
Topics of conversation can range from current events, music, and sports to other more personal aspects such as sexual topics and personal information.
A user has the opportunity to ‘walk away’ from the chat at any moment with a simple click of the mouse.
Users can start chats with their clothing on and then remove them.
More often than not, users can start the chats out completely nude and already engaging in sexual acts.
Children and teenagers can freely disclose whatever information they wish to to individuals.
Information ranging from email addresses, cellphone numbers, and addresses can be provided at will to any stranger.
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.
The most important thing is that anyone using these websites must understand what they are doing, the rules and what to do if things go wrong in an Omegle chat with strangers situation.
If you are a parent or teacher reading this, by having an open and honest chat with your child or children on what could happen in an Omegle chat with strangers scenario, you will encourage them to be open and honest with you when things go wrong.
The statement further requires that users under the age of 18 must have parental permission. Anyone regardless of age can just type in the website address, click chat and start a chat with strangers.
