FBI launches FBI Child ID App

Pin It

The last thing anyone ever wants to think about is your child getting taken away from you by a stranger or even someone you know. And while the statistics aren’t nearly are bad as one would think, parents think about child abduction all the time.

Regardless of statistical probabilities, there is a chance your child can go missing. In response the FBI has created the FBI Child ID application.

Straight from iTunes:

“The free FBI Child ID app provides a convenient place to electronically store photos and vital information about your child so that it’s literally right at hand if your child goes missing. You can show the pictures and provide physical identifiers such as height and weight to security or police officers on the spot. Using a special tab on the app, you can also quickly and easily e-mail the information to authorities with a few clicks. The app also includes tips on keeping children safe as well as specific guidance on what to do in those first few crucial hours after a child goes missing.”

Information stored on the application is local, meaning the FBI isn’t tapping into your phone or seeing your kid’s information. The app isn’t password protected, which it should be. But as long as your phone is password protected then you should be all set.
