The contemporary world has been taken over by technology and previously impossible things can now be a reality. These are certain uses of your smartphone technology that you may not have known about.
Technology has made it possible for parents to track the movement of their children. This can prevent the children from getting lost or find them, if they are missing.
Below are some useful features for this purpose:
1. Lassy Project
The goal of Lassy Project, according to www.parents.com, is to minimise the amount of time it takes to send out an alert that your child has gone missing. Unlike the Amber Alert, Lassy Project provides an image of the missing child and a real time map showing the coordinates of the child’s last known location. It works in seconds, not hours, and only alerts relevant people in the immediate area (the app is free on iPhone, iPad, Android).
2. Find my kids – footprints
Using the GPS in real time, this app helps you keep track of and automatically locate where your child goes with his phone. For instance, if he is travelling alone, you can confirm that he has arrived at a specific destination, or if he is meeting up with friends, they can confirm each other’s locations.
Location information is never shared with anyone else beyond those who have permission to see it, and the data is saved for a later review.
Even though the app is free, parents will need a subscription for the tracking feature. Download is free but the service requires a monthly fee on iPhone and iPad.
