We are thrilled to announce that Backup is now available on apple store, you will now be able to access the app from your apple mobile device.
Although the backup app has been available for download on the google play store since its launch in september 2021, IOS users have not been able to access it due to a few technical problems.
Backupapp allows its users to record and report audio/visual incidences of police brutality as well as add emergency contacts that can come to their aid when they find themselves in an emergency situation.
The app has a location tracking feature that helps users to share their live location with their emergency contacts in case they are taken to an undisclosed location.
