Princeton Jct, NJ (PRWEB) November 19, 2012
Rapid Protect (http://www.rapidprotect.com), which develops popular Rapid Tracker family safety apps and cloud-service applications for consumers, announced today the enhancements of security features that provide added peace of mind for busy families on the go.
Rapid Tracker is the only family safety app for mobile users that supports all smart phones (iPhone, Android, Blackberry) and non-smart, low cost Java enabled feature phones. It was the first company to integrate advanced geo-fencing capability in its web-platform. In addition, the apps have advance photo-check-in and status update features that can help families connect together. More group collaboration features are on the way and will be available in a few weeks time.
About Geo Fencing
The Geo-fence feature sets pre-defined location markers in the map for children. It enables parents to ensure their children’s safety and know where they are at all times by tracking the location of their mobile device. With Geo-fencing capabilities, parents can establish virtual geographic location boundaries to define where their children should be and receive an instant email or SMS alert in the event the child strays from that location. Parents can also set Geo-fence time parameters to receive an alert if their child does not arrive within a specified location within a certain time period.
Geo-fence can help in many ways. For example, parents could establish a Geo-fence around their neighborhood block to alert them when a child arrives home from school. Or, in the case of a child who is dropped off at the sports field or an after-school function, Geo-fence can alert parents if the child leaves the geo-fenced boundaries.
“Families are busy and children want to have their own life. Rapid Tracker Apps are designed to ensure that you can help family members when they need your help and support without always being with them or constantly tracking them” said Dr. Brijesh Kumar, COO at Rapid Protect. “Geo-fence is yet another useful layer to help you ensure your family remains safe without you constantly checking each other's whereabouts at all times.”
Parents can set and edit Geo-fence boundaries through the Rapid Protect web portal. Multiple geo-points can be set for a user. There are many other types of conditional alerts coming soon.
About Shared Photo Vault
The new Photo Vault feature for Rapid Protect provides a family common place to upload their photos from the mobile phones. All family members can upload their photos to a common vault giving them ability to share their photos within the secure environment of Rapid Tracker, For instance a husband can upload photos from a hotel when on a business trip or a student can upload personal photos from his or her college or dorm.
Geo-fence and Photo Vaults are available for Rapid Tracker subscribers on the mobile platform, bolstering the company’s commitment to protecting families through innovative, easy-to-use mobile phone security applications. The company is planning to add many innovative family group collaboration and safety features within a few more weeks.
