French Government Releases Terror Alert app

The French government has released a mobile phone app which alerts the public in the event of a terrorist attack.

The app, called SAIP, which stands for, in English, Population Alert and Information System, in order to alert users to ‘suspected [terror] attacks’. Users will be able to sign up to the app and alerts in up to eight different “geographical zones” as well as their present location.

The alerts will describe the situation and offer advice on how to stay safe. It also won’t make any sound or vibrate incase the user is hiding. The French government has added that user privacy will be protected.

The app is available on iOS and Android operating systems.
