What Omega says, "Omega is a free live video chat app, similar to Omegle, HOLLA, Yee, OmeTv, Azar, and Monkey, where you can talk to random and anonymous strangers. With one tap, you’ll be connected with millions of users from over 100 different countries. All video chats are carefully safeguarded by our automated AI protection software, and all violators will be removed permanently."
What SGS says, "Omegle and Omega both encourage inappropriate contact between strangers. Due to the false sense of anonymity, users may be put into dangerous situations. The advertising for Omega targets younger users with the promise of communication with an attractive stranger of their choice. Truth is you never know who is on the other end."
Offers opportunities for exploitation, pornography, sexualization and objectification
