Talking Angela is a scary urban legend about a mobile phone app that allows creepy hackers to interact with kids and take pictures of them.
Talking Angela started as a mobile phone application used by a lot of children. Angela is a white cat with blue eyes who has a conversation with you and can answer any questions you ask.
Recently, an e-mail began to circulate warning people not to use Talking Angela. It said the app had been taken over by a creepy guy who uses it to spy on children and possibly kidnap them. He has managed to hack into the app and uses it to gain access to personal information on people’s phones.
It is said that if you say you’re over 18, nothing happens, but if you’re younger, the cat starts asking weird things, like where do you live, what are your parents’ names, what is your phone number… etc.
They say the creepy man is able to take photos and record video of you through the phone’s camera and if you zoom in and look carefully at the cat’s eyes, you can actually see him. Sometimes there is just an empty room, but sometimes you can see a creepy guy watching you. Even if you close down the app, it keeps running in the background so he can watch you and take pictures.
In one of the more sinister cases, a young girl was talking to Angela and got the scare of her life. Angela asked her age and the girl decided to lie and say she was 30 years old. She was horrified when the cat responded, “That’s a lie. You’re about 11 or 12.” The girl was shocked and stunned. Then, as if it could see the expression on the girl’s face, it said, “I know you’re about to delete me. Take care… Sweetheart!”
In another case, a child was talking to the cat and happened to place his finger over one of Angela’s eyes. The cat said, “Take your goddamn hand off my eye, I can’t see!¨ The boy closed down the app, but later he heard a clicking sound coming from the phone as if it was taking photos of him.
Some Spanish-language websites claim that a young boy named Eli Morenos, who lived in a suburb of Dallas, Texas, disappeared shortly after his mother downloaded the Talking Angela app.
One woman claimed that her daughter stayed home from school and was on her iPod playing with Talking Angela. The mother overheard the conversation and said the cat knew her daughter’s name and asked strange questions like, “Hi, where is your brother?”
The girl said, “He’s right here next to me,” and the cat said, “Oh cool!”
Then the cat asked, “So what do you do for fun?” The girl replied, “I dont know”, and Talking Angela’s voice suddenly changed to some sort of weird robotic voice.
It asked the little girl, “When you date, what do you do on your dates?” The child was embarrassed. She got red in the face and said nothing.
Then the cat said, “Stick out your tongue. I’ll stick mine out too. What are some things you can do with your tounge? I can find many things to do with my tounge. Let’s interact with our tongues.”
At that point, the mother said she had heard enough and yelled at her daughter to shut off the app. She was so freaked out that she called the police department and they said they would have their internet investigations unit look into it. They called her back an hour later and said, “Something is behind that cat!!!”
When a police officer came to interview the little girl, she told him that she had been using the app with her cousin and Angela asked both girls their names and her brothers name was what school they went to. It also took a picture of them. When the girl used the app again a few days later, it remembered that she had a brother.
Apparently the cat is also asking girls for their phone numbers and if they’ve had their first kiss yet!!!
My big sis had that app long back. The only reason she downloaded this game is that she and I knew the creepy stuff behind Talking Angela and wanted to mess with her. In this game Angela sits on a table which seems to be at a restaurant. When we tap on her table more than 3 times or more she falls down along with the table. My sis thought it was funny and she kept doing that and laughing until she said,”Stop laughing!!! I know you are having fun with your sister. Stop it, it hurts!” We deleted the app on the spot. My sister has a new phone now…
I still have that game! and i love it tbh i want to be like fake kidnapped just to see if I’m smart enough to escape
That happened to my friends and I,
She asked me for my age, my address and some other things I could not remember
My friend was asked the same questions and the address of her school

Okkkkkk..So I’m will SURELY have it downloaded tonight.Damn you freaking hackers!I swear if I see that stupid little freak I WILL get the sh## out of him!!
(Talking Angela currently downloading)..
Creepy, And Cool. I Had That App About 4 Years Ago When I was about 5 But I Deleted It.
My friend, Logan told me about the rumor I got the app and she asked me what my name and age was (this happened in like 7th grade) she didn’t ask anything else! All you guys are liars saying that it’s true. Also the last thing in her eyes is Harry Styles.
I got the app a few years ago, but I didn’t see anything strange in her eyes or anything freaky like that. :I
Uhhh.. What if this guy is dead?
Well legend has it, that if you are born early you’ll meet Bart Simpson. Believe in that? If you do, then OK. If you don’t, then you probably don’t believe other myths like myself ❤
I fancy cats. But not ones that look like trump.
I still have the app, but I always have blu tack on the camera because just in case not just for the app I only have my talking Angela. It was fine tho none of this is real I just don’t believe this stuff
I used to own the app on my tablet but talking Angela never asked weird question but I still deleted the app because I thought it was stupid.
Wierd questions: Not true
I used to own the app and rumors were swarming around like a pack of killer bees; the rumors would sting when you were told about it, as in fear. Anyway, the cat did seem suspicious and wierd but I wasnt asked any wierd quesitions!!!!!

sometimes it’s a blessing in disguise that I haven’t used touchscreen until 2013.
Every single word of this is true! I downloaded this love letter app with Angela and Tom and that’s when I noticed something vague in the cats eyes. Took a screenshot, went on a different app, ColorSplash, zoomed up to the eyes and there was a room, with pictures, and I think a shape of a human… Male human! So you better believe it!!!!!😫😫😫
i wanted to download the app but then there was a new update and now we cant talk to angela.. :(
i don’t like the game tho
i never liked it, good thing the mom is clever 8.5/10 for mother’s cleverness
But I guess the chat feature has been removed now
