Omegle, which is a website and app for text and video chatting with strangers, is not safe for kids to use. This tool is designed for adults and includes frequent sexual behavior, inappropriate chat topics and privacy concerns.
Common Sense Media reports that chat conversations on Omegle are filled with adult content, including sexual content, adult language and references to illegal drugs and violence. Omegle warns of sexual behavior and states that children under 13 years old should not use the website or app. Critics note that Omegle shares IP addresses with chatting partners, which raises privacy concerns. Other similar applications that could be unsafe for kids include Snapchat, Ask.fm, Kik, Whisper and Tinder.
