Watchdog is a free mobile application that aggregates relevant news, alerts and warning messages to the public. The system is updated by the collaborative efforts of a group of individuals and organizations that are working to establish the credibility of information by sorting them out as either facts or rumors.
The platform has been designed to ensure the safety of the people by relying on safe and accurate information. The primary release of the mobile application focuses on curating information, whereas the later updates include advanced security features such as geo-locating your friends and family and ensuring their safety during times of crisis and panic.
The application is a combination of a news verification log and an emergency response system that will help cities coordinate while staying safe and secure during times of uncertainty.
