Police Warn of Apps That Solicit Child Pornography From Young Users


Maryland police are urging residents to monitor their children’s cell phone activity, warning of apps that ask children to send naked photos of themselves.

Anne Arundel County Police received a complaint from a concerned parent who discovered that the app asked their 5-year-old child for nude pictures, and threatened violence if that child didn’t comply.

From WBAL:

According to the complaint, a voice in popular children’s apps asked a 5-year-old user to take naked photos of themselves and siblings in the bathtub and threatened to strangle the child if they didn’t comply.

The cellphone apps “Talking Angela,” “Talking Angela 2,” “Talking Tom 2” and “Talking Ben 2” are catching the attention of Anne Arundel County police following a disturbing complaint Wednesday from a parent.
