Well, that is what he said but that’s the thing – who really knows?Another Be Web Smart reader did a test and shared the conversation with me: A quick Google search helped me to answer this question.So right away we have probably answered the question in the title of this post!
When you use Omegle you do not identify yourself through the service – chat participants are only identified as “You” and “Stranger”.
From there however, anything goes – certainly a chat participant may decide to give their name, location, age and other personal information.
You can take a look at the history in their web browser.
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.
We use Microsoft Live Family Safety and her account is filtered to only allow “General internet” websites, and no social media.
I logged in to her account (I have the password, of course) and WAS able to get to the Omegle website. However, Live Family Safety gives me the ability to add any website to a block list.Other services you can try for blocking specific websites include parental control filtering such as and or browser add-ons such as Block Site for Firefox and Chrome.A live video chat room is a system that allows Internet users to be able to see other user’s video feeds from the webcams on their computers.I can log into my admin account and specify any websites that should not be allowed.I did this right away to prevent Omegle from being available to my daughter.
