Here’s what you do:
- Tap on the camera icon on the screen

Is Omegle Dangerous?
Omegle can be risky to use. After all, you’re speaking to strangers on the internet. You should be especially careful if you are underage. However, most people use the chatting service to find new friends. So, many people on the platform are usually trustworthy.
Contact Omegle’s team with the username of anyone that sent inappropriate messages to you. You can get their account shut down.
Can Omegle Conversations Be Recorded?
The answer is yes and no.
Let me explain:
Omegle is a major chatting service. You can feel safe knowing they don’t have built-in features that allow users to record you.
However, there is no way they can stop users from using third-party devices to record others. Unless the person you are speaking gives this away accidentally, you won’t know that you are being recorded.

Yes, you can set up two webcams. If you like, you can combine your webcam with a video camera too.
To add the second camera, simply connect it to the USB port on your desktop.
