Today’s dating world is risky. People meet online and chat by phone without any real knowledge of the other person’s character. That unknown is the risk that many people take in search of love. The Chicago based app developer, Date Tracker Alert LLC, has just released the free iPhone and Android versions of its successful dating safety app, myDateTrackerAlert. This app provides a way to maintain dating privacy while making sure that someone knows if the app user didn’t come home last night.
“It’s really easy to use Date Tracker Alert. Before meeting someone for the first time, enter the date information and set a check in time. If the user doesn’t check in by the time that she determines, an alert with the contact's name, and the time and location of her date will be texted or emailed to her emergency contact(s).” says Linda Smith, developer at Date Tracker Alert LLC. In the deluxe version the contact's photo, URL, address, and the user’s cell phone GPS locator information can also be included.
If plans change, the app user can log into the app and edit the check in time or location of the date. The alert can even be deleted if the date cancels. This is much easier than constantly calling friends if plans change or checking in with them after they have already gone to bed. The app user controls what information is given, when it is given, and who is it given to.
“Having recently retired after 30 years in law enforcement, I have always been an advocate for the safety and well-being for people of all ages. I have taught safety issues to children through seniors throughout my entire career and understand how vital it is to desire an added bit of security when it comes to dating, work related issues, or perhaps when traveling alone” says Barbara Cascio, a retired Deputy Chief of Police from the Franklin Park, IL Police Department. Background checks can be helpful, unless the app user’s date hasn’t been caught yet. GPS location devices on smartphone can be helpful, unless the phone is turned off. DTA alerts go out even if the phone is turned off and the fact that somebody knows the app user is missing gives the emergency contacts the information that can help them, and law enforcement, find the app user if she is missing. It’s peace of mind.
