Unmonitered nude chats to strangers

Below is a warning that pops up before entering an unmonitored video chat: Upon ending a chat, users have the option to save their chat log and share the link. Parents beware; get this Omegle blocked from your computer’s web browsers and off their phones.

Omegle is a website that allows you to chat with a random stranger.

More alarming is if your child is using a computer to access Omegle, their privacy policy clearly states that the following information is saved on their servers for 120 days: “the time your chat began, your IP address, a randomly-generated ID tag assigned to your computer, your chat partner’s IP address, and your chat partner’s randomly-generated ID tag.” While this data is used for law enforcement and to try to track and prevent spammers, you are willingly providing this information when using Omegle.

The shortcut Ctrl-H will open the browser history in Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Safari. Keep in mind that savvy kids may know how to delete their browsing history. I was curious to know if the parental control software I use on our family laptop would allow my daughter to visit the Omegle site.
