Beware – Omegle website

20th January 2021

We have received various reports around a website called Omegle.

We received this email from our PCSO:

I just wanted to make everyone aware in communities about a website I have come across which is of concern and I did not know if it was one you were all aware of.

It is called Omegle.com, it is easy access, and the opening page has “talk to strangers” on it. Obviously alarm bells from the off with that one.

I am aware that recently the have been 2 cases where 11 year olds have been encouraged to take part in sexual acts through video calls or where images of male adult genitalia has been found on screen on entering a child’s room.
