Talking Tom scare – Is Talking Tom dangerous? – Should my kid use Talking Angela or Talking Tom?

angela-the-cat-scare-hackThe hair on my arms went up.  I was definitely spooked when I read this Facebook post.  Having two kids, lets just say I had shivers and freaked out.

Here’s what I read on Facebook:

I can’t even in words say what I just found out. I am SHOCKED and want to tell and let my friends and family, so they can be made aware, so they can make sure their children are safe.

Angelica stayed home from school today and thank GOD she did.

Because she was on her iPod playing a game called talking Angela, which is similar to talking Tom, anyway as she is sitting next to me this interactive cat says to her “Hi angelica where is your brother?”

She says “OH he’s right here next to me”

The cat says “Cool”, then the cat says “So what do you do for fun?

Angela says “I don’t know”.

Now I’m being quiet and listening because I think its weird this Angela cat knows she has a brother and is talking to her like a person.

Then its voice changes and in some weird robotic voice it says “angelica when you date, what do you do on your dates?

She looked at me at this point, got red in the face and said nothing.

Then it said stick out your tongue, I’ll stick mine out too”

It asked “what are some things you can do with your tongue? I can find many things to do with my tongue, let’s interact with our tongues.

At that point I had heard enough.

I shut it off!

I was freaked out, called the police department, they came to the house, said they would have the internet investigations unit and paedophile investigations unit look into it.

They called me an hour later and said “something or someone” is behind that cat.

They don’t know if it is local or overseas.

While the police officer was there and angelica was talking to him she told the police officer Saturday night her cousin and her were on the Angela app and it asked the girls their names, what her sisters/ brother’s name was what school they BOTH went too, and it took a picture of angelica.

This is under serious investigation right now.

When I googled talking Angela app I can’t even begin to tell you what creepy stuff came up.

Google it for yourselves.

But some things are: the talking cat asking girls for their phone numbers and if they’ve had their first kiss.

Take this app off your phone please.

There’s a big chance this could be a door for pedophiles.

The police have said they have seen things *like* this but never actually through a child’s app, but that they are not putting it past them.

The girls told the talking Angela app, the innocent cat as they thought on Saturday their names and she had a brother and then on Monday morning when angelica turned the app back on, it had remembered her name and that she had a brother.

These things AREN’T supposed to ask you questions and especially not questions about dating, using tongues or kissing.

I am disgusted.

I don’t feel safe at all right now.

Knowing that there was some creep talking to my daughter and my niece through a talking app.

Please if you have this app or any like it the police are saying take it off of your phone.

Some crazy accusations for sure.  Let me tell you that right when I saw this that I ran to all my kids’ iPads, iPod touches, and iPhones and removed Talking Tom and every animal like Angela the cat that is associated with it.  This really is scary.  And you know what, it’s totally believable.  All the newer devices have webcams, there is voice recognition with these apps, they can mimic you as they’re intended.  So, what’s to stop a hacker from getting in the code and chatting with you real-time.  Hackers can hack your email, chat, and IM programs so why not hack an animal and video chat with you?

But, I said this cannot be true.  So, I Googled this Facebook chat and sure enough, it has gone viral with discussions here and there.  The main rebuttal, from Naked Security, says it’s bogus and cannot possibly happen with the real tech service guidelines and protocols of app creating.

These talking animal apps allow the user to take screenshots to be shared via Facebook and Twitter.  This is supposedly the only real ability of the user to show his or her face, and this is supposedly only shared to Facebook or Twitter, and nowhere else.

My take on this whole thing is that it could certainly be true.  Hackers morph into so many different advanced ways.  We have seen hackers take over computers and then move onto identity theft situations.  We have also seen Gmail, email, and chat programs be hacked as well.  What’s to say a video chat program, such as Talking Tom or Talking Angela, cannot be hacked and used to chat, extort, and take advantage of young users?  That being said, you should remove this app for now as whether it has happened or could happen, it’s a viable possibility that we should not play Russian Roulette with.

If you feel your computer has a security issue, has a computer virus, has been hacked, you should take immediate action and hire a computer service technician to take care of it.  The longer you let a possible computer IT issue linger, the worse your computer may get.

UPDATE!!  I have finally found the perfect way to protect yourself from this Talking Tom scare, the Angela the Cat scare, and basically any other disgusting pedophile, hacker, or other evil person on your iPad.

What you need is a way where others will not see what you’re doing.  This means that nobody will be watching you on your iPad.  In turn, you can be rest assured that you are safe.

To be safe on your iPad, you need a good secure watch out for apps like this.  Truly, the best way, is to avoid Talking Tom or one of its sister sites.  One of the clickable ads on this site may further educate you on this, but the best way is cold turkey, straight up not even using these awful apps.

One step you can take is bring your iPad or another device using this app to a tech to completely wipe and reinstall the operating system to ensure there are no hackers hiding within. 

Click here so you can get rid of your Talking Tom hacker.

Good luck and stay safe!

  5. i downloaded tom and angela app downloaded and installed in my phone for my nieces.sometime i open this app is auto laughing without touching and talking any one.i m so amazing in my room.so i want to know about auto voice recording was saved past talking n action in this app

    1. It has been a known hacking technique where one can hack into a computer and listen in by the recorder. Be careful!

  6. Forge the Metal

    I don’t believe any of this crap , talking tom is download by more then billion people it is a game of outfit 7 how could someone hack it? There are other popular games like talking tom like Coc and Hay day these games are never hacked…. Hey everyone don’t believe this shit play the game if you like it all of this is fake .

    1. Hi Forge the Metal, sure, that’s another viewpoint and perhaps a valid one. But, with the real stories folks have shared with me and the easy hacking possibilities with Talking Tom, I’d rather not have my loved ones take the risk with this game. Not worth it.

  7. Guys. You do realize that that is nothing what the app actually does. My sister played this game and it never asked her any questions the entire time she played it. She eventually deleted it because it got boring. I am pretty sure that this is just a scam and isn’t true because I’ve watched my sister play it multiple times and it never asked her any of the questions that were listed above. Lol. Also all of the youtube videos can be photoshopped and edited. Not everything online is true. LOL

    1. Hi Amisha, you may have a corrupted uninstaller package which is not letting you uninstall it. You may have to manually go into the registry to remove errant files. If not comfortable, you should seek out a local computer repair shop.

  10. I got the app about 3 years ago and soon after I got it I was talking to some older girls from my school. They told me that the police had come in to talk to them about this and that they should pass it on to their friends and family. As soon as I got home I told my mum and deleted it. For six nights after that i couldn’t sleep because i was so scared and creeped out. I had to sleep in my mum’s room. I am 12 now and it still scares me that people still using it without know its true use. I think it is disgusting and the fact that it is still free on the app store is wrong. It should be banned.

  11. I’m scared
    I have my talking Angela, Tom, Hank, Ginger, and Ben. Is it safe? I’m REALLY REALLY scared right now.

  12. I have a doubt,, the talking Angela track us when we have a good internet connection ryte!!
    If there in the phone there is no internet connection?? Does the talking Angela reacts??

    1. As long as you have an internet connection, whether fast or slow, Angela, Tom, or other peeping Toms have the ability to hack you. Sad but true.

    1. Hi Jack, we haven’t played with talking Pierre as all of these talking animals are on the same plane as potentially hacking your system. be careful!

  13. This hoax has been disproven many times as a simple search would show. Joe Silverman, you should be educating rather than fanning the flames of this hoax. If you truly believe this, you should delete all your games “just to be on the safe side”.

  14. Talking tom and angela are not possessed, but hackers using remote access to your device. The permissions give access whenever they want to view using your camera. A programmer discovered that there is a chatbot program in the app ( the interactive, interrogative questions) and there is an independent code for client server, str(send to receive). STR is the chat line used by pedophiles to send a a device code( 12-16 digits, letters and numbers) to others on the client server. Once activated, a device server number in a command line give remote access to a group of pedophiles that see through the camera, and other devices with the app. the permissions allow it. Angela or tom will say remove your thumb from the camera. It is interactive to locate the persons using the app. The 7 yr old kidnapped girl and the app is not coincidence. Do not download the app. The company is wrong, there is a HACKER VERSION APP on the internet. It is possible for a chatbot to receive and record video of many users at once.

  15. not a hoax, a real hacker

    This is hackers, pedophiles using remote access to your device. Beware of sceptics because they can one of the hackers. The permissions give access whenever they want to view using your camera. A programmer discovered that there is a chatbot program in the app ( the interactive, interrogative questions) and there is an independent code for client server, str(send to receive). STR is the chat line used by pedophiles to send a a device code( 12-16 digits, letters and numbers) to others on the client server.

  16. Hello there, just a guy here, I thought I should drop in here and point out that the story from above has been proven to be fake before, as are all of the rest of them. I used to play the app all the time, and it does ask your name, but only for a more personalised experience, and you don’t have to say your name either. If you do a bit of research, beyond the sea of false stories, you will find the truth. None the less, if you are worried about the app, they removed the chatbot recently because of all the pointless rumors, and it is the same as all there other apps, such as Talking Tom, which simply repeat what you say. Besides, hackers may be able to do a lot of things now, but these apps only internet connection is ads, and you can play it without wifi on anyway. That’s all I have to say.

  17. I want to talk to him and see if he is real?
    can i please right now leave a comment down below for me and see if i should.
    i want to i mean i do not think he is scary but we will have to see.

    talking tom are you there my devil?

    1. Hi Savannah, I’m not sure if your message is a joke or for real, but Talking Tom is not a character that we advocate nor mask through our chat here. Glad you’re facing him head on! Very brave!

    1. We’ve seen many folks cover their webcam for safety precautions. This is one way to ensure nobody is looking at you.

  18. So, will it be safe if I don’t talk during playing the game and put my finger over the camera? I think so. So will it be safe

  19. Holly Shit! I was closed out of the app and angela said I know your about to delete me take care ?☹??

    1. Hi Farrah, if the message came up after your clicked the exit icon on the app, that may have been an automated script which is not abnormal. But, if it was before or after without your clicking anywhere, well, that’s spooky!!

  20. This is so sad,, we can’t even enjoy a game because of these things.!! And I also believe it and stuff because when me and my friends first heard of it we invested on it quickly????

  21. I had this game not creepy but one talking tom 2 he said “s**t” and did not say it and I do think this is true

  22. Kristina, in this day and age when Alexa is listening to us, Re-marketing ads are tailing us all over the Internet, it’s not surprising that Talking Tom is right in there listening to us and interacting back and forth. Unfortunately, evil people are taking advantage of this.
