Making the world safer for parents & children

Featured

Find My Child is the world’s first global alerting service and smartphone application designed to help reunite parents and lost children quickly and safely should they become separated.

All parents’ biggest fear is losing their child, it happens more often than anyone wants to admit. Nearly every parent you know will have one horror story about a separation and thankfully they almost certainly have a happy ending.

They will tell you how they turned into a headless chicken and instantly assumed they were lost or even worse … In reality, statistics show overwhelmingly that they are not lost! They are simply temporarily separated. More often than not the child has no idea he/she is missing and is happily going about playing or maybe looking in a toy-shop window, even thinking they are big and clever by going off to a toilet alone. Especially between the ages of 2-8 years old, the cases of temporary separation are numerous.

What you need in such a situation is to encourage as many people as possible to help search for your missing child. The quicker you can get lots of people looking, the better the chances of a speedy reunion.

Every second counts and the distance between you and your child potentially grows as time goes by.

The problem is how do you get people to help?

You will probably run around asking everyone in sight repeatedly giving out the description of your child, all wasting valuable time.

This is why we created the FIND MY CHILD iPhone App.

We think it’s possibly the smartest and most helpful of all smartphone App’s.

Help is quite literally in your hand.

The one thing that is needed when a child is separated from their parent or guardian is as many people as possible helping to look, and with our smartphone App that’s exactly what Find My Child does within seconds.

Find My Child is available worldwide. You can learn more about how it works here

Version 2.1 released for faster alerting

We’re pleased to announce that version 2.1 of Find My Child is now available in store. Updated for iPhone 5, this release also shortens the sending alert sequence to make it faster and easier to raise the alarm if required.

This release also lays the groundwork for some exciting news we have in weeks to come, so watch this space for further updates!

Version 2.0 released

We’re delighted to announce that version 2.0 of the Find My Child app has just hit the Apple Store.

This version now has a test mode to enable you to show your friends and family how the service works. This test mode operates in conjunction with the network builder which you can learn more about here.

The other neat thing about being able to build your own network of helpers is that they will always be alerted in the event of an incident regardless of where they might be at the time.

The power of social helpworking

We’re all familiar with the power of social networks. What started off as cool ways of keeping in touch with family and friends has matured into people powered networks capable of changing the world. Whether it’s MPs’ Expenses, the Arab Spring or the downfall of Media Empires, social networks are increasingly the way by which ordinary people can both voice their concerns, coordinate their actions or simply be alerted to rapidly changing developments.

This got us thinking.

Wouldn’t it be great if we could harness the incredible power of the social network and put it to work in the real world, so that people can help each other out in times of need.

The moment all parents dread.

That horrible feeling that comes as you realise you can’t find one of your children is one of the worst emotions that anyone can ever experience. Panic builds, you stop thinking straight and you are desperate to find people who can help.

What if …

Imagine you could pull out your smartphone and within seconds, send an alert to every other parent in the neighbourhood. It might be just a handful, it could be hundreds or even thousands, but within moments fellow parents and helpers can receive an alert containing a photograph of your missing child, a map of where they went missing plus a description of both the child and what they are currently wearing.

Suddenly your chances of being reunited quickly have just improved enormously.

The explosion of smartphone technology has put that help right in the palm of your hand.

That solution is Find My Child

The beauty of Find My Child is that within seconds, people close to where you last saw your child will be alerted. You’re not relying on people interacting with our application at the time of your loss, and most importantly you’re not having to waste time repeatedly giving out descriptions to people nearby. If someone spots your child, they can call you directly to ensure you are quickly re-united.

We like to think of it as a powerful social helpwork.

All you need to do in order to help a parent or guardian from going mad with fear, or a child left scared and feeling lost is download the app and launch it once. Now you will be a member of our safety net.
