I can log into my admin account and specify any websites that should not be allowed.I did this right away to prevent Omegle from being available to my daughter.A few clicks and I found text excerpts and videos on You Tube of teens sharing their stories of Omegle encounters. In case you’ve read this far and are still not quite convinced that Omegle is a bad idea, here are a few facts about privacy and how the Omegle service works:1.One video was a teen girl’s story of how she met up with an Omegle chat buddy in person without her parents’ knowledge. The Omegle homepage clearly states that the service is not for those under 13: “Do not use Omegle if you are under 13.
Omegle is a website that allows you to chat with a random stranger.
When you use Omegle you do not identify yourself through the service – chat participants are only identified as “You” and “Stranger”.
From there however, anything goes – certainly a chat participant may decide to give their name, location, age and other personal information.
Well, that is what he said but that’s the thing – who really knows?
