Now, There Is An App That Can Help You End Human Trafficking

If you want to do your part to stop human trafficking and have never found a way to do so, there is an app that wants to help. TechCrunch reports that developed by the Exchange Initiative, an organisation fighting sex trafficking, ‘TraffickCam’ is aimed at building a national database of photos of the insides of hotel rooms, to help law enforcement match images posted by sex traffickers to locations, in order to map out routes and methods used by them. The iOS and Android app will also be useful in helping to locate victims and traffickers.

TraffickCam is a crowd-sourced data gathering platform which can be used to match known locations to photos confiscated from/shared by perpetrators, and according to its creators, testing shows that it is 85% accurate in identifying the right hotel from the top 20 matches.
