The Ride ID app allows users to store details and save them to their smartphone’s lockscreen, without compromising the device’s security.
This means first-aiders and paramedics can quickly access the information.
Tim Makin, director at Wink Nudge, says the app works by allowing users to create a screenshot of their information, which can then be used as wallpaper. He says, ‘This gets around the need to unlock the phone with a PIN code for example.’
Makin says there are also plans to roll out the app to other groups who might use it, such as hikers and climbers. This could involve different branding and functionality.
