Must Have App for Parents: FBI Child ID

What if your child is missing? Do you know what to do? Who to call? If you have a traditional “child ID kit” can you find it? Is the photo and info current? Is this the time you want to be updating it?

Like many otFBI_App.jpgher parents, we’ve experienced the overwhelming panic of losing sight of my child for a few moments while shopping or at a crowded event. The FBI Child ID App, now available for iPhone and Android smart phones, is an essential FREE app all parents should have. Simply download the FREE app from the App Store on iTunes.

No one ever wants to think about something bad happening to their child. This app is a great way to be prepared should the unthinkable ever occur. Using the app, you can show pictures of your kids and provide physical identifiers such as height and weight to security or police officers ON THE SPOT. 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.


The user interface is so simple to use with just a few clicks I update my child’s photo (and show what clothing she’s wearing) before we head to Disney Parks, stadiums, and even school field trips. Learn about this technology. Knowing how critical minutes are when a child goes missing we recommend this for you and your family along with a comprehensive safety education program with physical skills training. As with all ID kits we hope you never have to use them.
