WOWT reports:

A Sarpy County mother fears for the safety of her two young children.

She’s searching for answers after her youngest daughter received disturbing voice messages on her electronic watch.

“We buy these for our kids to be safe and here they are potentially putting them in more danger,” concerned mother, Tifffany Berney, said.

The pink watch on the wrist of her 7-year-old is a location and contact device for emergencies.

  2. I can’t do any testing myself, but I did reach out to AppThority with the info you provided and a link to the article. I asked them if they’ve ever looked into the device or app and if not, would they consider diving into it.

    If I hear anything, I will post something.

    Thank you for the info you provided.
