Push or Pull Security Alerts via a Travel Security App

When enabled via a leading travel security app like FoneTrac® this means that the user can both "push" or "pull" data to/from the cloud or a central control center. This means that the user can thus alert superiors as to their status in the event of an incident, or that administrators can "push" alerts downward so that users are forewarned of an impending danger.
