Internet Safety Expert Katie Greer on Morning MAGIC

June 18, 2019

A North Carolina mother is crediting THE FIND MY FRIENDS phone app for helping her find and rescue her missing teenage daughter who missed her curfew on June 7 and didn’t respond to calls or texts. When she pulled up her daughter’s location on the app, she noticed that it had been in the same place for “far too long,” so she went looking for her. Her daughter’s vehicle had hydroplaned off a road and tumbled down a 25-foot embankment on Pilot Mountain, she said. Photos of the wreckage shared on Facebook show the white sedan completely mangled. Macy was found inside with an arm pinned between the car and the ground. 

Macy suffered a fractured neck and nerve damage in her arm that she said she’s lost feeling in. She shared a video of her moving her fingers, an especially meaningful gesture for her because she had been told that she may lose them.

So we have Internet safety expert Katie Greer to explain HOW we can use technology to keep our kids safe!

HER BIGGEST TIP: Turn your LOCATION SERVICES OFF on all apps that dont require GPS. Make sure to select "ONLY WHILE USING THIS APP"
