A graph $G = (V, \alpha)$ is called \textit{primitive} if there exists a natural $k$ such that between any pair of vertices of the graph $G$ there is a route of length $k$. This paper considers undirected graphs with exponent 2. A criterion for the primitivity of a graph with the exponent 2 and a necessary condition are proved. A graph is primitive with the exponent 2 if and only if its diameter is 1 or 2, and each of its edges is included in a triangle. A computational experiment on the construction of all primitive homogeneous graphs with the number of vertices up to 16 and the exponent 2 is described, its results are analyzed. All homogeneous graphs of orders 2, 3, and 4, which are primitive with the exponent 2, are given, and for homogeneous graphs of order 5, the number of primitive graphs with the exponent 2 is determined.
