New York Releases Anti-Terror App

Published on November 25, 2015 by

The authorities in the American state of New York have released an application for smartphones, which lets users upload photos of suspicious behavior directly to intelligence services. After several terrorist attacks this year – most recently in Paris – authorities have become increasingly aware of the threat of terrorism.

The new app goes by the name “See something, Send something” and is one of the measures that the authorities in New York have taken in the fight against terrorism. Users of the free application can upload photos along with some descriptive text, and must enter their name and phone number.

The service is also available in five other states, namely Colorado, Louisiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
