France launches app to alert over terrorist attacks in the euro 2016

After the terrorist attacks that occurred in Paris in November last year, officials in France and Europe generally believe that football tournament Euro 2016 – which begins this Friday, June 10, at the outskirts of Paris–could be target of new attacks and threats.

For this reason, the Ministry of the Interior of France has launched a mobile for attendees of the tournament application in order to alert about possible attacks (via The Verge).

The application is called “SAIP” (Système d ‘alert et d’ information des populations) and uses Geolocation. This will identify people who are near points under threat and send them alerts within 15 minutes just an incident is confirmed.

In the event of a terrorist attack, users will get personalized information and steps to follow to stay safe. In addition, they can view alerts from eight different geographic areas where they want to know how he is a family member or a friend.

On the other hand, the idea of the application is also that people can disseminate correct information about the facts on social networks, thanks to official reports delivered to the application.

This is not the only measure of security implemented in the euro 2016, reports also indicate that officials in France will have technology capable of reducing drones entering restricted areas, among other measures. The application is available in English and French for iPhone and Android.
