Citizens across the globe and especially US citizens have become more concerned about their own personal safety, especially for children. In a study conducted by Parks Associates, 9 million US internet households (8%) are using smart tags, 37% say they do so to ensure the safety of another, and 32% say their children always carry one. To protect kids at school, parents and educators are seeking new solutions.
