About this app

Every year, thousands of children go missing. The FBI’s Child ID App can help.

This free app provides a convenient place to electronically store photos and vital information about your children so that it’s all at hand if you need it. You can show the pictures and provide physical identifiers like height and weight to security or police officers on the spot. Using a special tab on the app, you can also quickly and easily e-mail the information to authorities with just a few clicks.

The app includes tips on keeping children safe, as well as specific guidance on what to do in the first 48 crucial hours after a child goes missing. Links to additional resources for families and victims are also provided.

Please be assured that no information on your child will be collected or stored by the FBI unless you provide it during an emergency.

Warning: If you downloaded an earlier version of the FBI Child ID app (all versions released prior to 2015), any photos and/or information you previously entered will be lost when installing this update.

It's great that so much detail is able to be added about the added children. With an interface update it could be a leading application. I am also pleased that unless necessary the FBI does not have access to the information stored within the application, although a guarantee that stored information is secure (perhaps stronger encryption would do) would be nice.
