BUSINESS REQUIREMENTS

Parents are constantly concerned for the safety of their children. Having knowledge of a child’s location can bring some assurance that children are safe whether they are at school, on a field trip or visiting friends. Some of the key objectives were:

– Helping provide parents with answers to the typical kid safety questions
– Keeping parents informed of where the child is at all times.

CHALLENGES AND SOLUTIONS:

Children and parents in the UAE own smartphones. In fact, these devices are part of their daily lives. Due to the fact that children are away of their parents most of the day and are exposed to different dangers, the UAE Ministry of Interior Child Protection Center was looking for an app to provide protection for children. This rises important security issues as children real-time locations are involved. To respond to these needs, Apptiv-IT designed a secure app that is in line with the UAE Ministry of Interior security Protocols.

In fact, in order to register to the app services:

– The person has to be an UAE citizen
– The mobile number used for the registration has to be registered by the Abu Dhabi Police and is received by sms.
– Only fathers are allowed to register for the service, they then add their family members.

The family members receive an invitation by email. The emails are checked by the AD Police to ensure they were received by the right people. The solution adopted high security standards as children safety is involved and access to their real-time position can represent a danger.
