APP TURNS SMARTPHONE INTO PERSONAL PANIC BUTTON,ALERT SYSTEM

 

 

” A “panic button” smartphone app that can alert friends and family if you are in trouble or feel threatened has been released, its British developers say.

PanicMe, created by developer DataMe in consultation with local police forces, allows a user to set up a personalized response network of friends and family to be contacted when a panic alert is activated, The Daily Telegraph reported Friday.

A traffic light system offers three panic options — green, amber or red — depending on the seriousness of the event, and as many as 30 numbers in the phone’s contact list can be selected for each panic option.”
