OMEGLE Awareness


Please be vigilant to your child's online activity. There have been reports that children in Rotherham have been searching for the OMEGLE live video chat website – a website where children have been found to be exposing themselves, as well as adult males. 

Omegle links up random people for virtual video and text chats, and claims to be moderated - but has a reputation for unpredictable and shocking content. Launched in 2009, the website regained popularity during the coronavirus pandemic due to social isolation. However, the website is just as dangerous as it is entertaining. Omegle is potentially filled with explicit content and predators, and children and teens of all ages can easily access it. The website doesn’t require any age verification.

To block Omegle on your child's devices, please visit the following website for a step-by-step guide.
