If you regularly download the latest iOS and Android games for your children to play, you may have been worried about a recent Talking Angela cat app warning that has been circulating online.

Claims are being made that the Talking Angela app is secretly collecting children’s personal information, but it looks like this app is the victim of a hoax that is completely untrue.

Even worse, it looks like the Talking Angela game has been accused more than once with claims of a similar nature. In actual fact though, downloading the Talking Angela app does not even show any signs that personal data is being collected, or magically find out what school he or she is going to.

Some consumers are still looking for answers though, and you’ll be refreshed to see that the Talking Angela app warning has reached Snopes.com as well. The website has provided this conclusion which also backs up the claims that this is nothing but a malicious online hoax.

“The truth is that “Talking Angela” appears to be entirely benign, and there are no obvious privacy concerns that differentiate it from thousands of other iPhone apps. Indeed, the “Talking Angela” app is no different from other similar popular children’s apps from reputable iOS developer Out Fit 7 Ltd, including “Talking Tom Cat”, “Talking Ben the Dog” and “Talking Gina the Giraffe”.

Another hoax trying to dupe users.

Experts over at Sophos have also labelled the Talking Angela app warning as a hoax. In actual fact, it’s obviously very damaging to the developers Outfit7, who have previously released other similar apps as highlighted above with no issues.
