Privacy Policy

Last updated: January 2024

This Privacy Policy explains how Omegle ("we," "our," or "us") collects, uses, shares, and protects your personal information when you use our website and services.

Your privacy is important to us. Please refer to our Privacy policy and Coomeet's Privacy policy to understand how we collect, use, and disclose your personal information.

1. Information We Collect

Upon concluding an Omegle chat, either you or the other user may opt to store the text content of the chat on Omegle's servers. You and the other user may choose to disclose a Saved Chatlog or any information exchanged during the chat. Additionally, the other user has the capability to capture screenshots or use third-party software to broadcast or record the chat. Exercise caution when sharing information with strangers during a chat.

Personal information you voluntarily provide:

To register and interact with members on the site, you may be asked to provide certain information to enhance your experience. The information you may share includes:

User nickname

Email address

Address or location information




Payment information


Personal description

Shared social network details

Information for customer support

Use of your camera

Use of your microphone

We use this information primarily to help other users find and connect with you. You can update this information at any time by visiting Omegle. If you wish, we can use your social networking data to create an account with information from another site. Your payment information is used when you choose to purchase premium parts of the Service. Information shared with customer support is used solely to address the issue(s) you have raised. The use of your camera and microphone is optional. When using your microphone or camera in a chatroom, it will share video or audio with other users in that room. We may also display clips of your webcam in other areas of the site, but you can opt out of this at any time through settings in Omegle.

Usage information:

We collect information about how you use our site, such as the time and date of your visits. We utilize country-level geolocation based on IP addresses for safety and security measures.

Device information:

We may collect information about the device you use to access our website, such as the type of device, operating system, and browser type.

2. Video Chat

Omegle chatting service via video operates by establishing a direct connection between your computer and the other user's computer. This requires sharing your IP address with the other user's computer, although Omegle's interface does not display it to the other user. This sharing is an essential aspect of any P2P video chat system. If you are uncomfortable with this, you can turn off your camera (available on premium version) .

3. Cookie Policy

Both Omegle and Omegle’s third-party service providers utilize cookies, widgets, tokens, or similar technologies (collectively referred to as "Cookies") to enable specific features of the chat services. These cookies collect personal information in the following ways:

Omegle uses an ID cookie to assign a random online identifier to your device's browser. This identifier is used by Omegle for security and safety purposes on its website and chat services.

Omegle employs interest cookies, which allow you to save your interests and preferences while using the chat services. Omegle does not retain information from interest cookies and only accesses it to facilitate requests for chats using the common interest feature.

In addition, Omegle employs Language cookies, which enable the matching of users with the same language preferences. Omegle does not retain data from Language cookies and only accesses it for the purpose of matching users based on language preferences. Furthermore, Omegle utilizes an Auto-reroll cookie, which allows you to save your preference for enabling or disabling the auto-rerolling function during video chat services. Similar to the previous cases, Omegle does not store information from the Auto-reroll cookie and only uses it to fulfill your request for enabling or disabling the auto-rerolling function.

Omegle employs CAPTCHA technology to prevent spam and block bots, thereby ensuring the security and safety of the site and chat services. Moreover, Omegle uses Google Translate to enable the translation of site content into different languages. Additionally, Omegle utilizes Google Analytics to track anonymous statistical information about site and chat service usage. This data is used to enhance the safety, security, and functionality of the site and its services. Finally, you have the option to manage the information collected through cookies using your browser settings. If you choose not to accept cookies, you may experience limitations in accessing all available functionalities on the site and chat services, and certain features may not work as intended.

4. How do we utilize the information we gather from you?

Omegle may utilize or disclose the personal information it collects for one or more of the following purposes:

To fulfill or meet the reason you provided the information, such as providing the chat service.

To help maintain the safety, security, and integrity of Omegle's site and chat services. This includes activities such as screening and using information to protect against spammers, hackers, and other threats; sharing information with moderation service providers; and cooperating with law enforcement.

To evaluate and improve the site and services. This may involve aggregating or de-identifying information to produce statistical data, such as the average number of chats started at different times of the day.

To monitor and enforce user compliance with Omegle's guidelines and policies. This can include sharing information with moderation service providers, using automated systems to screen for suspicious activity, and cooperating with law enforcement.

To respond to law enforcement requests and comply with applicable law, court orders, or governmental regulations.

Omegle will not collect additional categories of personal information or use the personal information collected for materially different, unrelated, or incompatible purposes without providing notice to the users.

5. Sharing personal information with a third party

Omegle might reveal your personal details to a third party for business reasons. In such cases, Omegle ensures a contractual agreement with the recipient, specifying the purpose and mandating them to keep the information confidential and use it solely for the designated business purposes. Apart from the service providers detailed in the Cookie Section, Omegle uses Akamai Technologies, Inc. for hosting and for content delivery networks. For further information on these services and their privacy policies, please check the respective service provider links.

6. Sales of Personal Information

Omegle does not sell your personal information for monetary purposes. Previously, Omegle included social media buttons such as the Facebook "like" button, Facebook "comments" plugin, Pinterest "pin" button, reddit "share" button, VK "share" button, and Twitter "tweet" button on the site. The use of these buttons and plugins may have been considered a "sale" of personal information under the CCPA. However, these buttons and plugins are no longer in use.

To the extent that the use of these buttons and plugins constituted a sale of personal information, Omegle, in the past twelve (12) months, may have shared internet or similar network activity category personal information with Facebook, Pinterest, Reddit, VK, and Twitter.
