Concerns over chat platform Omegle

Last updated by Stephanie.Rosser@essex.gov.uk on Thursday, April 27, 2023

 

The 2 Johns from E-Safety Training have reported an increase in children of primary school age being aware of, and using, chat platform Omegle.

 

This is a website (and app) designed for adults and is extremely inappropriate for children to use.

 

There is a real risk of online harms for children accessing this site and parents have little, if any, concept of it. 

 

Internet Matters has a useful parents guide all about Omegle.
