Wearable security for journalists
PFO Tech’s wearable security technology already protects human rights activists, political dissidents and aid workers in 15 countries.
Working conditions for journalists in large parts of the world have become considerably more dangerous over the past 10-15 years. Kidnappings, attacks and threats are now a recurring factor to relate to and the trend is negative. And, yet, freedom of expression and of information is one of the world’s most important freedom. It is the foundation of any democracy. Never send anyone anywhere without the proper safety equipment and have your staff working with an effective Shield – the PFO Shield.
With the PFO Shield (Bracelet, mobile app and supervising dashboard) you can keep track of everyone in your team, both letting the report when all is ok as well as sending an immediate alarm when needed.
