Q. Why is IGuard999 I.C.E different to other products or similar ideas ?
A. There are I.C.E. apps available to download to your phone. These have annoying ads popping up and ALL your information is available to view by anyone.
1, An app is a good idea but not that good if your phone screen is smashed or battery flat !
2, A talisman or id bracelet with an engraved contact number on it is no good if your next of kin changes their number. Also if you telephone a contact number they can't deliver all the information that my program does.
With Iguard999 I.C.E there are no annoying pop up ads. Only basic information is viewed by the public but there is a link to life saving information on what to do in an emergency until help arrives.
