Emerald Chat is a free online chat website that allows users to socialise with others around the world without the need to register, just like their rival Omegle. Emerald chat has actually branded itself as ‘The New Omegle on their website, if you aren’t sure what Omegle is we have a blog on it that you can access for free. Like Omegle users do not need an account to register anonymity is an issue, the person on the other end could be anyone around the world and the user has only been linked with them as they have the same interests however, they have made steps to combat bots that use the site. The platforms minimum users should be 18 and the creators state on their website that “Whether its just friends you’re looking for or something more. You can find it on Emerald at the click of a button.” So different users are looking for different types of connections on the site including dating.” This means that a person under the age of 18 can view content, have contact, share information or converse with someone who does not know how old they are they are.
Digital connection sites have become more popular in the last year as a socially distanced way to connect and although the age to sign up for most sites is 18+ they can be accessed by younger users.
Is Emerald Chat safe?
As there’s no real moderation on the site One-on-one texting or video can be as graphic as the users want. The people you can encounter on any digital platform may not act appropriately and can use the platform to abuse vulnerable or underage people in a number of ways. Users for this platform should be 18+ and children should not access Emerald Chat as they have the potential in to coming in to contact with harm and as there is.
