An automated system is used to check chat messages for spam, but some may be manually read by humans. Video chat may also be captured and checked manually by someone for misbehaviour.
In the ‘unmoderated’ version, video chat is not moderated, but chat may be checked for spam.
At the end of a chat, users can save the chat log. They can also take screenshots of video chat or use third party software to record a video chat. This means that they can share this information with other people.
Every time you chat, Omegle will store a timestamp, as well as your IP address and ID cookie. This data is stored for 120 days and can be sent to law enforcement, or be used to improve Omegle’s monitoring processes.
