I think it's a great idea. For those worried about the government finding out where you are, take a picture when you get there and then upload it right before you leave. Therefore by the time Lord knows who shows up, you are gone. It's not rocket science. This app could actually save a life.
This is a fantastic idea! For those who are concerned about the origin of this app the phone numbers that you see in the screenshots were created by Polaris Project, one of the most reputable organizations fighting human trafficking. For those who say the police don't monitor this app, some departments may not know about the app however that does not make it un-useful. Our public servants always could use more resources in their pursuit of keeping us safe and any help the public provides is warranted. Especially something like this where the departments investigating trafficking and kidnapping rely on photos they see of their victims to find them. Keep up the good work everyone!
An easy way to help fight human trafficking Human trafficking is a serious problem, in the US and elsewhere, and this is a small, simple way to help. You have to upload from the hotel but, if you're paranoid about giving your location, you can take pictures upon arrival and upload at check out. True, law enforcement agencies don't monitor the app; the makers are contributing to a database used by law enforcement agencies. If you still don't feel confident, just do a little research. It's legit.
Fix it! I'm currently in a hotel being told I can't upload pics because my location isnt on (it is!) - I'm trying to help and the app is preventing that. I travel 60% of the year - you need me to have this working! Galaxy S6 Edge Plus.
Helping fight against human trafficking So far the app works. I haven't had any problem uploading the pictures.
Don't use! Our police officers are not monitoring some free app on Google play. This sounds like a set up, you have to be at that location when sending in the photos so you can't leave to do it and whoever is really running this application will know exactly where you are. Our own government is having some of our most advanced high security technology hacked, it wouldn't be hard for someone to hack this app. Predators most commonly method for kidnapping these days is the internet. Apps. Its how everyone stays in touch
