France to Launch Smartphone ‘Terror Alert’ App

“A new smartphone app designed to alert users to possible terror attacks will be launched by the French government Wednesday, amid growing security concerns over the Euro 2016 football tournament.

The application, which will be free to download in both French and English, will send users a warning ‘in case of a suspected attack,’ said the interior ministry, which has piloted and introduced the service.

It will also alert users who must agree to be geolocated about ‘unexpected events’ such as the breaching of flood defences.”
