SAIP is “Alert System to Inform Populations” or in proper English “Population Alert and Information System”.
This awkwardly named App was released by French Government ahead of European Championship to warn people in stadiums, travel hubs and fan zones against terrorist attacks or natural disaster.
In the wake of growing attacks between gangs of football hooligans and recent terrorist threats to Europe, it makes sense to have this App installed in every smartphone in France.
The App use a very neat and simple interface. To get the benefit of using this App, you need to keep your location services and Wi-Fi turned on to receive possible warnings. The phone screen goes Red, the moment a warning is activated. The screen will then display information on the rules of conduct or specific instructions on best possible way to escape the situation.
The App is also designed not to make any sound or even vibrate in case if the phone user is hiding from a potential dangerous situation.
The App is currently available for Android and iOS users.
