We know how protective parents can be of their children, and given the number of horror stories we hear about children being kidnapped, well safe to say that it’s about time we do something about it, which is why Yepzon could be a Kickstarter project you might be interested in if you are a parent looking to protect your child.


So what is the Yepzon? Well it’s basically a little gadget that can be worn around the neck of your child. Alternatively it can also be slipped into their pocket. The device itself comes with no buttons which is why its creators believe that it is safer, although we guess there’s really nothing to stop the kidnapper from smashing it.

That being said, assuming that no one knows about it, Yepzon will allow parents to track the location of their kids via its accompanying app. The app will allow users to track as many Yepzon devices they want that are paired with their account, so for families with more than one child, this could be of interest to you.

The device itself will come with a battery life of about 3 months, and users will be able to enable/disable the device via the app if you want to save battery even further. The good news is that the app will play nicely on a variety of devices, such as iOS, Android, and Windows Phone, so unless you’re running on a different platform other than the ones we just named, you should be fine.

The Yepzon is definitely not the first of its kind that we’ve seen, but if you’re looking for alternatives, perhaps it could be worth your time. To learn more, head on over to its Kickstarter page or check out the video above for the details.
