It’s called Chatroulette, and it’s a website where strangers come to chat with other strangers on a 1-to-1 basis via their webcam.
If you want to switch strangers all you have to do is hit “Next”.
It’s as easy as that, there are no filters; every connection you make is totally random.
I checked out Chatroulette for myself to get a better idea of how it works.
Upon entering the site, you are immediately given the option to enable or disable audio and video for your own feed.
The site essentially has zero security features, leaving it open anyone from anywhere in the world to stream their live video feed straight to your child’s computer screen.As you can imagine, this poses a real threat to our children’s online safety and privacy.
