The Missing Child ID App, FBI's first mobile app


The FBI has released the Child ID app, a free iTunes download, which provides parents with iPhones a place to store "photos and vital information" about their children. For now the Child ID app is only available on an iPhone, but the FBI plans to develop the cell phone app for other types devices.

According to the FBI's press release:

An important note: the FBI (and iTunes for that matter) is not collecting or storing any photos or information that you enter in the app. All data resides solely on your mobile device unless you need to send it to authorities. Please read your mobile provider’s terms of service for information about the security of applications stored on your device.

The Child ID app podcast can be downloaded for more information.
