Digi Family Safety App - Keep Our Family Members Safe
I've always put my family's safety above everything else. They matter, their well-being matters. Every day we hear and see crime cases in social media, radio, TV and newspapers, which is really scary. I for one would take pro-active steps to ensure my family members are always close, safe and connected at all time. It's a good thing then that technology has enabled us to do just that, with Digi introducing their Digi Family Safety App, a mobile app to keep our kids safe. Read more about it below.

Now everyone has a smartphone, iPad, tablet or any communication device for that matter. Heck, even my 4 year old knows how to operate his mother's iPad. It's a good move then from Digi when they launched the Digi Family Safety App a couple of months back. I can only think of plus points from having a mobile app which utilizes the GPS to activate Family Location which can locate your family on your smartphone or the web in real time. Real time you say? Wow.

|Registration is quick and painless|
The Digi Family Safety app can be downloaded from Google Play Store for free and provides parent’s with the ability to track the location of their childrens’ mobile devices using GPS signals. Family members can also check in using the app, making it easier for everyone to keep track of the other’s whereabouts. One thing to note though, you must be a Digi subscriber, be it prepaid or postpaid to register and use this mobile app.

A brief introduction to the Digi Family Safety App is in order. The app allows a customer to create a family account up to seven family members and protect everyone with key features such as Family Location, Geo-fencing to create safety zones for family members, Notifications, Check-ins to regularly inform others where you are, Panic Alert to send an emergency alert with your location to all family phones, Parental Controls to restrict phone usage to family phone numbers and control when certain apps can be used and Phone Security which allows you to find, ring, lock and wipe any family phone if lost or stolen.

See, so many features in one app. Why won't you get it is beyond my comprehension. I have downloaded it to all my family's devices at home. With two small kids at home, sometimes its so important to know their location when they are out with other family members. I love the parental control function too, restricting access to certain apps which I do not want my kids to use and see. Practical and useful indeed.
