What is Omnichan Pro: 4chan and 8chan Client?

Omnichan Pro is a chan-reader app that allows users to browse their favorite 4chan, 8chan or image boards easily. Omnichan Pro is the paid version of the Omnichan app, which offers ad-free browsing for a one-time purchase price of $1.99. Omnichan Pro is rated for users 17 years of age and older and is only available for Android devices.


Before there was Reddit, there was 2chan (and then 4chan and 8chan). Developed initially to discuss anime and similar topics in a message board or bulletin board-like forum, 4chan was developed by an American as a place where anything goes.

 

Labeled like subreddits, 4chan features a section labeled “/b/,” which has been deemed the “darkest corner of the searchable Web,” or a hair above the darknet.

 

The /b/ section of 4chan functions at a furious pace, as items are not archived rather, they’re deleted as soon as new threads are posted, making hanging out on the thread addictive for some users, especially those who suffer from FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out).

 

If 4chan is despicable, then 8chan is simply vile. 8chan is another message board forum, similar to 4chan and Reddit, but lacking any type of moral compass, whatsoever. Where 4chan features moderators to oversee its sections, apart from /b/, the entire 8chan site functions like the /b/ section of 4chan, and emphasizes freedom of speech, no matter the legality of what’s said or posted.  

Is Omnichan Pro: 4chan and 8chan Client safe for my kids?

It’s important for parents to note that Omnichan Pro is rated for adult or mature users only due to the nature of the app’s function. While the app itself is not harmful, it allows access to “anything goes” chan message boards and image board where content is notoriously not appropriate for children. This app is not safe for kids

Parents familiar with reddit already know that it can be controversial and that it’s not a place for kids to spend time concerning discussion topics include pornography, drug and alcohol use and abuse, suicide, death, and pretty much any other topic a parent would wish to limit their minor having access to.

Because Reddit is made up of the user base or community, conversations will be candid, can often be vulgar, and very often can contain misinformation. 4chan and 8chan are Reddit forums on steroids.

Anytime anonymity is involved with an app, parents need to be on alert, and 4chan/ 8chan chat boards are no exception. In fact, the anonymous aspect of chan boards with part of the appeal for users, as well as the reason why topics and conversations take a turn to the dark side.

Parents should know that 4chan is referred to as a “shock post” site and is the site that originally leaked Jennifer Lawrence’s private, nude photos after hackers accessed her iCloud account, in addition to nude photographs of many other celebrities.

In fact, posting offensive material is a game to the avid 4chan user, and they often make a game of being able to outdo one another. And because users on the site are entirely anonymous users tend to lack any moral responsibility.

Parents need to know that 4chan is not where they want their children to be, and they especially don’t want them surfing the /b/ section, which often feature violence and pornography.

The one redeeming factor about 4chan is that illegal activity, such as posting and distributing child pornography, is frowned upon in the forum, and generally shut down in the self-governed threads.

With a little background on 4chan and 8chan chat boards, parents now understand why having a reader like Omnichan Pro is not something they want to find on their child’s phone, nor is it something they want to allow their child to access.
