FBI launches child safety app for mobile phones

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

What would you do if you were out shopping with your child and they suddenly disappeared? Well, there's a new application for your mobile phone that can help. It's the FBI's Child ID app. 

It provides a convenient place to electronically store photos and vital information about your child right at your fingertips. 

It allows you to show pictures and provide physical identifiers such as weight and height to security or police officers on the spot. You can also quickly and easily email the information to authorities. 

Right now, the Child ID app is only available for the iPhone. It can only be downloaded from the App Store on iTunes and it's free. 

The FBI plans to extend this tool to other types of mobile devices in the near future.
