The French authorities have announced the launch of a mobile application that will notify about the terrorist threat two days before the start of the European Football Championship, AFP writes.

As the French Home Affairs Minister Bernard Cazeneuve says, the decision to launch the application was accepted after the terrorist attacks in Paris in 2015.

It is noted that the application can be downloaded free in English and French.

Once the user agrees on the definition of its location, the app will be able to receive notifications of dangerous events that took place next to him.

It is expected that the report will come in less than 15 minutes after the incident, when the French authorities will be able to confirm the probable threat.

Users can also keep track warnings on eight geographical zones in order to verify whether their friends or relatives are safe.

The application will also provide tips on how to ensure their own safety, taking into account each particular situation.
