There’s apps for everything from shopping to games like Angry Bird. Now the FBI has an iPhone App for parents called Child ID.

The app allows parents to store photos and vital information about their children. That way parents can immediately share the info with police or security, for instance, at a mall, the FBI said. The information can also be emailed immediately.

The app also includes tips on keeping children safe as well as specific guidance on what to do in those first few crucial hours after a child goes missing, the FBI said.

The app is currently only available on iPhones, but the FBI said it expects to expand the offerings for other mobile phones.
