FBI Child ID

FBI Child ID


Every year, thousands of children go missing. The FBI’s Child ID App can help.

This free app provides a convenient place to electronically store photos and vital information about your children so that it’s all at hand if you need it. You can show the pictures and provide physical identifiers like height and weight to security or police officers on the spot. Using a special tab on the app, you can also quickly and easily e-mail the information to authorities with just a few clicks.

The app includes tips on keeping children safe, as well as specific guidance on what to do in the first 48 crucial hours after a child goes missing. Links to additional resources for families and victims are also provided.

Please be assured that no information on your child will be collected or stored by the FBI unless you provide it during an emergency.

Warning: If you downloaded an earlier version of the FBI Child ID app (all versions released prior to 2015), any photos and/or information you previously entered will be lost when installing this update.

Works like a charm since I updated it!!! I had issues with the birthday and other functionality of the app, but since the update - it works great on my Samsung Galaxy S 4. And sending the information to your own email for archival purposes is a smart idea. Easy to get to all the links and input information. Uploading pictures of birthmarks is awesome!!! A million time better since the update. No information is sent to the FBI or anyone else without sending it via email. Any mom or dad needs to use this for each of their kids.

Doesn't send picture Though it stores a picture of your child, it doesn't appear to send the picture to law enforcement with the other information. Also, the information they send is not in a very readable format. Definitely needs improvement. However, there are no longer any issues with entering the birthdate or state.

Not everything works So I can't even enter the date of my kids birth or the picture won't save. Come on FBI you can't even handle an app how are you going to find my kid if something happens?
