Video chat provides users with the opportunity to engage in video and text chat with strangers picked randomly. Stealth topic based Omegle chats are where a random question is given to two strangers and they are encouraged to talk about the topic.Questions are based on suggestions from fellow users and can be silly and weird, such as ‘why do ladybugs have spots,’ to more personal questions like ‘when did you lose your virginity.’ Omegle recently released an app that provides both video and text Omegle chats to individuals who have access to a smartphone or a tablet.The statement further requires that users under the age of 18 must have parental permission. Anyone regardless of age can just type in the website address, click chat and start a chat with strangers.
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.
