WHAT IS IT?
A site that randomly connects you to another person, lets you talk to them in a one-to-one audio or video conversation. You can both appear as anonymous, unless you decide to share your personal information.
WHAT WE SAY:
Omegle states “No matter where you are, you can use OMEGLE and start to talk to strangers!”
This statement causes huge concern as users cannot manage their safety if they share personal information with strangers
Personal information does not just include exchange of words but also images and videos
Children who have used this app have highlighted that they have seen inappropriate content including sex, violence, bullying, self-harm, suicide, drugs and crime.
SAFETY TIPS TO CONSIDER:
There is an under 18 section - but still not safe at all
People sending inappropriate things - ask children to tell you if anything goes wrong
People you don’t know can watch your videos - personal information could be shared
