“Instagram” to Find Ukrainian Children

The "AMBER Alert" missing child alert system will be available in 25 countries, including Ukraine

Instagram has announced the launch of a missing child notification system. The AMBER Alert algorithm will work as follows: when a person with a downloaded Instagram is at the point where someone's child has disappeared or been abducted, the system will notify the phone owner. The person receives personal information about the child, photos, conditions of disappearance and clothes in which I last saw her. Within 2 weeks, the system will work in Ukraine.

AMBER Alert results from collaboration with Meta and the National center of missing and exploited children in the United States, the National crime agency, the Attorney general's office of Mexico, the Australian federal police, and other law enforcement agencies. Ukraine was represented by the national police and the Ministry of digital transformation.

During the war, AMBER Alert is crucial for parents whose child was stolen by the Russians, killed and buried, illegally deported, and "adopted".
