In Spy (Question) Mode, users have two options; to be the "spy" and ask a question of two strangers, or to discuss a question with another stranger.
As the spy, the user inputs any question for the two strangers to answer or discuss and is able to view the discussion as a third party, albeit without being able to contribute further to the conversation.
The site now provides a mobile application that lets users chat with strangers from mobile devices. Omegle was initially a text-only chat that paired users at random to communicate as "strangers".
However, in 2010, Omegle introduced a video mode to complement the text chat mode, which pairs together strangers who are using webcams and microphones. In 2011, the beta version of a new feature, "Spy Mode", was introduced.
Whatever your reasoning for doing so, it’s always worth considering how you would feel if someone did the same to you. Not only is it advertised to snoopers who want to track the location of an individual, or spy on someone’s smartphone usage but it’s also marketed as a legitimate security tool.
This is ethically questionable at best, and a massive breach of privacy at worse.
Omegle is not okay for kids – unless you are okay with your kids chatting with complete strangers. Omegle has been around since 2008, with video chat added in 2009.
I’ve also had several requests from concerned parents asking for a review.is a free online chat website that allows users to socialize with others without the need to register.The service randomly pairs users in one-on-one chat sessions where they chat anonymously using the names "You" and "Stranger" or "Stranger 1" and "Stranger 2" in the case of Spy mode.The first thing I was asked was “asl” – meaning what is my age, sex and location. On the second test, I ended up in a brief chat with a young man, a software developer from India.Well, that is what he said but that’s the thing – who really knows?
