Once an individual walks away, they can close the website out completely and stop chatting or be paired up with another stranger.In addition to text Omegle chats with strangers, Omegle offers two other chat options: video chat and stealth topic based chat.
The format is the same, but it provides individuals with access to this service without requiring the use of a laptop or desktop computer. In an effort to comply with COPA or Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, which prevents websites from collecting children’s private information without permission from a parent.
Omegle has a written statement that users should not be under the age of 13.
There is a warning at the bottom of the website that Omegle video chats may be monitored.
Unfortunately, while there is a promise that 24/7 monitoring will occur, there is the possibility of more video chats occurring than monitors.
