If your partner has two calculator apps, they may be cheating on you
It turns out that calculator apps and relationships have a lot in common. Now, we’re all guilty of checking the weather or dialing random numbers on our phones as we anxiously walk past a group of people our own age. It’s perfectly normal to do this, but if you’ve ever come across of them calculator apps on your partner’s phone, TikTok has some bad news for you today.
First exposure by user @nuggetonair, people are now cheating their partners using a fake calculator app. Yes, you read that right.
“If you’re dating a guy and you go into his phone and type the word ‘calculator’ and he has two calculator apps, he’s cheating on you,” @nuggetonair is heard saying on camera. This sounds absolutely crazy, but how does a secondary calculator app suggest infidelity? “Because one of them is a secret photo album for nudes,” the user concluded.
The fake calculator apps in question are available on both Apple and Android devices, so it seems no one is really safe from tech-savvy cheaters. For Apple users, the 52.5 megabyte (MB) app is dubbed ‘Calculator # Hide Photos Videos‘. “It looks like a calculator but it secretly hides your confidential photos, videos, documents, passwords, notes, contacts and tasks,” reads the app’s description. “It disguises itself as a calculator to make it impossible for prying eyes and hackers [to] Find out.”
While you can hide photos and videos from your gallery, the app also has an option to delete those files from your phone’s memory when you move them to its secure vault. Featuring multiple locks, the app further includes a “panic switch” that quickly switches to another screen if it detects a shoulder surfer or snooper trying to peek at your screen. Meanwhile, the app’s “disguise mode” confuses would-be hackers by displaying a fake crash notification, and its “Hack Monitor” can tell you exactly who tried invalid passwords to open your vault.
For Android users, the infidelity app exists as ‘Calculator – photo vault‘ by Fish net. This app is even more advanced than the previous example and includes an “Intruder Selfie” feature that takes a picture of the intruder using the phone’s front camera whenever the password is entered incorrectly. Google Photos and Apple iCloud could never.
To clarify, the two apps in question are not exclusively made to house nudes but are often used for this purpose.
“Facts. And now we’re getting divorced 🤷🏻♀️,” one user commented under @nuggetonair’s video. “New fear unlocked 🔓,” added another. “Shh! You can’t share this info! Bro code #468,” a third warned as others advised checking the storage space of both calculator apps to make sure your partner isn’t doing the dirty.
At the same time, a quick search for the keyword “naked calculator app” would lead you down a rabbit hole of people using and finding out about the app’s nefarious purposes:
Ultimately, if you’re in a relationship and want to maintain healthy dynamics with your partner, avoid downloading a sus calculator that is not actually a calculator. A second application isn’t really necessary unless the math is your problem anyway…
