FBI launches updated ChildID App ahead of Missing Children’s Day. App is compatible with Apple and Android
The FBI today announced a reboot of its popular Child ID App, which provides parents with an easy way to electronically store their children’s pictures and vital information to have on hand in case their kids go missing.
The application, which works on most Apple and Android smartphones and tablets, allows users to store up-to-date images and physical descriptions—like height, weight, birthmarks, etc.—that could help responders in the event of an emergency. The information is stored only on your device—not with your mobile provider or the FBI.
The latest version of the Child ID App contains updated features, including high-resolution image capability, a default recipient field (where you can enter your local police department’s e-mail address, for example), and optional automatic reminders to update your children’s profiles.
Current users of the Child ID App are encouraged to download the latest version for improved performance and capabilities. Please note that if you had been using an older version of the app (prior to 2.0), you will need to re-enter all relevant information after installing the update.
The Child ID App also includes tips on keeping children safe as well as specific guidance on what to do in those first few crucial hours after a child goes missing.

In 2014, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) launched the “Take 25” campaign which encouraged parents, grandparents, teachers and other concerned adults to take 25 minutes to talk to children about safety and abduction prevention. This May, NCMEC has transitioned Take 25 into a broader-based approach to include areas such as child sex trafficking and children with autism who wander.
