Monday, May 7, 2018

The Ministry of Interior launched the ‘help me’ service through an application in the smart phones to pinpoint the location of ‘lost’ people

According to Al-Rai daily report, this service which is linked to the Operations Room of the Ministry of Interior went into operation on May 6.

The service will be a great help to rescue those lost at sea or in the middle of the desert and even those subjected to kidnappings.

Security sources said the application is distinguished because the ‘victim’ does not need to talk to anyone, does not require an Internet service but must have the GPS which can identify the location of the person who requests help.

The sources pointed out the service requires the owner of the cell phone to enter details such as the phone number, civil ID number, mobile phones numbers of relatives and email, for

the Ministry of Interior to save in its database.

In case of emergency, all that the person needs to do is press the button (help me) and the phrase ‘emergency assistance request’ shall appear on the screen at the ministry is now on WhatsApp Channel    Follow Channel
