New app aims to keep people safe while out and about

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — It’s a position many have been in at one time or another, you’re out at night, and no one knows where you are, or when you’ll be home.

A new app will change that soon. The Kitestring app is being described as a safe call service. You log into the app, enter where you are and when you should be home. Afterwards, you will get a message from the app making sure you are okay. If you don’t respond, Kitestring will notify the person you listed as an emergency contact when you download the app.

It’s a free tool to help keep you safe.
