    Hello there!

    We are glad you reached out to us. This is a very scary situation and it is totally understandable that you are upset.

    Let’s get right to your main concern about this Omegle Stranger getting your IP address. While it is possible, with a lot of knowledge and internet work to get your IP address while on Omegle, it is very unlikely this person actually got your IP address. A lot of people say that about IP addresses to get people to do things they would not normally do. Going one step further, let’s just say this person got your IP address, which most likely they did not, all they actually know from that is your city and state. There is no way for them to get your home address unless you tell them that information.

    For your safety going forward, you may want to consider using a VPN if you plan to go on websites like Omegle. When you use a VPN, all of your information is blocked and the websites that you visit (and anyone trying to get your information) only see the VPN address. You should also know that while Omegle says all chats are anonymous, they do keep recordings and screenshots of all chats on their website. There have been instances of those records being hacked and hackers using personal information disclose in the chats.

    Internet safety is important, and a good rule of thumb to consider at your age while on the internet---don’t do or say anything online you would not say or do if your parents or other adults were looking over your shoulder. This might be able to help prevent some potentially sticky situations online. If you were to ever find yourself in another situation like this one, or otherwise with someone trying to convince you to do something that you're uncomfortable doing, know that it's okay to say no. You should never be forced or coerced into doing something that you're not okay with doing, and you don't deserve that sort of treatment.

    We hope that this informations helps puts your mind at ease some, and gives you some tools for staying stay while online. If you'd like to talk in more detail about the situation or through some of your concerns, please feel free to reach out to us directly by calling 1-800-RUNAWAY, or by chatting with us live at www.1800runaway.org. We're available 24/7 and are always happy to listen, and to help.

    Take care.

    I was recorded on Omegle and my IP address was exposed

    I was on the live chat on Omegle, my parents were out of the house, so I decided to go on there. By the way, I am a 14 year old girl. This just happened a few minutes ago. This man had a video of a snake about to eat a bababy chick, he said if I showed him my boobs he’d save the chick. I thought it was fake, but then the snake striked and swallowed the chick. I was keeping saying “this isn’t real” and btw my camera was off. So I offered to show him my bra, so I took a bra from my drawer and turned my camera on. He told me that he wanted to see me in them. So I pulled up my nightgown and he say both my underwear and bra, and then he said if he could hear me, and I said yes. He said he recorded all of it and he was going to post it online to my IP address and my home address but he would delete the video if I did as he said(showed him my boobs). I was terrified I just realized the big mistake I made, and I feel so stupid. Please help me. I cant tell my parents they don’t know I do this. They’d never forgive me. He said he tracked my IP address and my home address. If this is fake tell me, if this is real, tell me how to stop it. But good news, I was careful enough not to show my face, but people will still recognize me cause of my clothes. I feel so terrified and I’m so scared help me please.
