Overridden With Sex Bots, Pedophiles And Ads
Omegle is a site intended for teenage or adult audiences for "face to face" communication. Its set up in a format where each user is given a random stranger to talk to (an obvious danger considering you have no idea who's on the other side). You have the choice between talking in text or showing yourself in video webcam.
First off, the website is an absolute threat to anyone! At any time a user can overlay the camera with fake footage or change their voice using a program (an internet catfish or internet pranks). Occasionally you can witness adults displaying themselves nude or other gruesome and sexual pranks (E.g. fake hanging, fake girl cam showoff). There are numerous videos online where general users have stumbled across nude people while making a video, and it's not as rare of an occurrence as we would hope.
Wave goodbye to your privacy, it mostly doesn't exist on this website (probably for legal purposes). Upon entering the site you give permission for your IP address (.E.g can lead to your global location) to be stored for a short time. You can share your "private" conversations with a URL link, hopefully, you don't say anything you shouldn't or anyone can access it! Furthermore, you can link your facebook account/s (as long as your valuable information is kept private for your best friends you should be ok).
There are a large number of automated sexbots on the website (despite the filtering), you will be left with a hit and run chat which abruptly ends.provides with a link to another website (.E.g Instagram, Kik, or WORSE). Additionally, there are provocative or adult advertisements on the website which are unsuitable for children.
Even in real conversations, you can be involved with strong swearing, sexual, or stalking chats. One annoying quote you will almost certainly be met with when starting or ending a chat is "ASL", this stands for" age sex location"? This is a question either intended for innocent curiosity or sexual engagement, either way, it's a bit invasive.
Numerous times police have conducted tests on the website to see if they could catch potential paedophiles and sometimes almost instantaneously they have found them. The users have asked for their age and for naked images to be traded online. Even just three weeks ago on the 5th of December two-hundred suspected Pedophiles were caught on Omegle!
If you have children or teenagers on this site (or you are using this site), either watch them 24/7 or completely disengage from it immediately! The site has clear issues and dangerous conversations are guaranteed to come your way! You are better off talking to your neighbours than having horrible experiences every couple of conversations.
