What is it? Its an online chat website that allows users to communicate with strangers without registering
  • Omegle contains a disclaimer that asks that no one under age 13 may use Omegle and no one under 18 may use it without parents' permission
  • In a 2013 case, the transmission of nude photos and videos via Omegle from a teenage girl to a schoolteacher resulted in a child pornography charge
  • August 2012, Chatroulette removed the Safe Mode feature of the website and posted new terms and conditions, stating that nudity was no longer allowed on any part of the site.
