What is Omegle?

With a tagline of "Talk to Strangers" it was almost destined to face controversy.

By James Nunns

Omegle is a free online chat website that allows users to talk to other people.

Users do not have to register and the service will randomly pair users in a one-on-one chat session where they chat anonymously using the names “You” and “Stranger” or “Stranger 1” and “Stranger 2” when it is in Spy mode.

The company markets itself as: “The Internet is full of cool people; Omegle lets you meet them. When you use Omegle, we pick someone else at random so you can have a one-on-one chat.”

When did Omegle start censoring?
