Another Be Web Smart reader did a test and shared the conversation with me: A quick Google search helped me to answer this question.
Omegle is not okay for kids – unless you are okay with your kids chatting with complete strangers. Omegle has been around since 2008, with video chat added in 2009.
When you use Omegle you do not identify yourself through the service – chat participants are only identified as “You” and “Stranger”.
I’ve also had several requests from concerned parents asking for a review.
From there however, anything goes – certainly a chat participant may decide to give their name, location, age and other personal information.
I tried it a few times by clicking on the link to start chatting with a stranger.
Omegle is a website that allows you to chat with a random stranger.
So right away we have probably answered the question in the title of this post!
