Can't Access Omegle - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Try alternative urls such as

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

text site appears to be down. video side appears to be working (too afraid of the unmonitored section to check). every chat change requires an annoying captcha entry to proceed. Omegle's "contact us" link also appears to be down.

its been 2 months now, everytime i get on omegle, im able to add interests and choose vid or chat, but when i hit either one, both of them never find anyone, it doesn't even say searching for someone. i'll hit stop and when it says "are yu sure" i can't click it again or hit esc to find someone else. omegle is seriously broken and i find this site fun, i made +10 friends. also i just realized that there is this add that is hidden behind the chat log box and the words "ads by ***" where my chat partner's cam is. i feel this might be part of the issue is because of that ad. im not 100% sure but i never saw that till recently when omegle crunked out

also i cleared my cashe & history, restarted my laptop, and my router, my camera works perfectly fine on, even on chatroulette (which i dare never go again) im just so confused as to why omegle doesn't wan't me to make for frinds

Samuel Growl Persico · 3 February 2014 - 08:41
Spain · Jazz Telecom

Its down because they are fixing the site with other issues that are more dangerous for your "surfing online" I can chat normally with the cam but not when i enable the interests as others etc.. You can write-chat too so thats good, youll have to wait and give them a big thanks to atleast have a virtual social website that doens't have a lag issue as Chatroulette or other big sites, I usually get banned for no reason thanks to retards banning me or using fake/false info so i usually report it and after several days "less then a week" they get me unbanned (Ive never shown my penis) Who the f#!k does that? (No lifers only?) Well thanks for your time!

P.S: Yes it's down, you'll have to wait.

Omegle does not allow me to connect if I have my interests enabled unless I am on my phone with my wifi disabled, then it somehow works when I use my 4g. It's very odd.
