Talking Angela app – is it dangerous?
I have just seen the following on Facebook:
WARNING TO ALL PARENTS WITH CHILDREN THAT HAVE ANY ELECTRONIC DEVICES , eg: IPOD,TABLETS ETC …. THERE IS A SITE CALLED TALKING ANGELA , THIS SITE ASKS KIDS QUESTIONS LIKE : THERE NAMES , WHERE THEY GO TO SCHOOL AND ALSO TAKE PICTURES OF THEIR FACES BY PUSHING A HEART ON THE BOTTOM LEFT CORNER WITHOUT ANY NOTICES . PLEASE CHECK YOUR CHILDREN’S IPODS AND ALL TO MAKE SURE THEY DO NOT HAVE THIS APP !!! PLEASE PASS THIS MESSAGE ON TO YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS THAT HAVE KIDS !!!
When I tested it I saw that in child mode the above doesn’t happen but when not in child mode, whilst I wasn’t asked any questions, the taking photos thing did happen. Personally, I feel that this app is a little untrustworthy however it may be completely innocent. However, I still wouldn’t let m kids download it, just to be on the safe side.
