FBI Release a Child ID iOS App

Gadgehit writes: "The Federal Bureau of Investigation have released an iOS app, compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, which attempts to help you if your child goes missing. The FBI Child ID app allows you to store information relating to your children such as height and weight, and photos of them, so that you can easily access and provide the information to police officers when needed."

With the amount of phones that get stolen every year, this is not the best app in terms of security.

Yeah it's a shocking oversight by the FBI.

Speed-Racer4692d ago

Ya well how that is possible? If it's locked, how will a thief access it? -.-

gaffyh4692d ago

Depends if people lock their phone I guess, which I rarely do because don't want to have to enter a key every time I unlock the phone. I only usually put the code on when I'm going out, but even then I forget sometimes. If you're always locking it though, then there shouldn't be a problem.

Set a timed lock. Simple as that. It's your kid, you can call the shot on them.

True I believe the app will have its own password too.

It is when I can go to any computer and locate or wipe out (brick) my iphone.

Thank goodness for the fact that they didnt make an app for android phones, those peoples kids arent worth worrying about. /s

Speed-Racer4692d ago

I'm hoping your reason is because they are too smart to get kidnapped, right?

Droid 1 users atm. And i was in a foul mood when i first posted, i have a 7 year old girl that is my treasure and if anything happened to her i wouldnt exist anymore. I took the article unseriously but i dont wish any children to ever go missing. I shouldnt have joked on this subject.

thorstein4691d ago

I also have kids and I think your sarcasm is well placed. I have Droid X. Why shouldn't I be able to use the same app?
