November 22, 2017 – Chicago, IL. IMG GlobalSecur, a leading international corporate security consulting firm, is proud to announce the expansion of their FoneTrac® travel safety app to individual users and families. The app has heretofore been widely used by business people, nonprofit organizations, and study abroad programs to keep track of and work with members during international travel.
“We’re very excited about the expansion of FoneTrac to the wider community of travelers,” explained Chris Hagon, CEO of IMG GlobalSecur. “The app can be downloaded from the Apple app store as well as Google play. Those who have corporate or institutional applications can reach out for a demo at the website.”
To learn more about the FoneTrac travel safety app, please visit FoneTrac-go.com. Persons interested in trying the app can now download it at Apple’s App store and/or Google Play. The app supports both iPhone and Android. The app helps travel security in the following ways. First, like most travel safety apps it has the “panic alert” feature wherein the person can send a trouble alert. Unlike other apps, FoneTrac works with GlobalSecur, which is a network of real people with real intelligence and real capabilities. So the “panic alert” is sent to a live center, and real help can be secured. Second, the app has a “check in” feature that allows the user to “check in” and thereby post to his or her contacts their last known whereabouts. This feature does not violate user privacy, since FoneTrac does not monitor a user’s whereabouts continuously and has commonly been used by corporations to secure “check in” compliance from employees during travel abroad. Third, the app has “push alerts” wherein GlobalSecur can send out an alert on a travel security issue such as a severe weather forecast, a potential terrorist problem, or even the threat of political instability.
The best way to experience FoneTrac is to download it to one’s phones. Persons – including bloggers or journalists – with more complex needs are urged to reach out to the company for videos and a demo.
