BlackBox Digital Witness automatically sends your audio, video, and GPS information to our secure server where it becomes a permanent record of threatening situations. Video cannot be deleted from the device, preventing an attacker from forcing you to delete an incident against your will.


• One-button streaming of audio, video, and GPS – Our simplified camera interface is designed to be easy to use in emergency situations. Press record, and your video and GPS location are automatically uploaded to our server.

• In-app 911 dialing, with auto-notification to your emergency contacts – If you need to contact 911, this app does more than just dial, it sends your video and location to your emergency contacts by text or email, automatically.

• Review and Share Videos – If the recording is not a 911 emergency but you still wish to send it to someone like law enforcement or school officials, you can easily send the links by text or email.

• Videos cannot be deleted within the app – This is to protect you from being forced to delete the video during an incident. Remember, this is like having a silent witness that won’t back out.

For the truly paranoid


Yes, note, when you're gagged by 'enemies' (yet are STILL calm, and STILL have unobstructed use of your tablet/phone, and can calmly push buttons, comes yet another thing to prey upon those fears, alongside your trusty gun(s), et. al.

Before I truly mock this bit of nonsensezip want you to try and think.

Think of all those videos you've web, posted purportedly showing ufo's, people from the 'future', and all the other lunacy.

Note, how many of those show toy clear images, good sound?

This bit of Laramie is supposed to 'help' someone in the following situation; let's say a 'terrorist organisation' has grabbed you (yawn). You're supposed to reach into your pocket or bag or whatnot, and pull out your handy, dandy phone or tablet, then, calmly and secretly scroll to the app, then STILL calm push 'record', and all the other nonsense....


The likelihood that you'll be in a situation - even remotely like this is next to nil (except if you reside in any of the bible-thumping, 'moral' areas of the states,iI e. the south or Midwest).

If someone is actually in imminent danger (and that more than likely would be a fender-bender), is much quicker, easier... and useful to just ring the police.

Don't clutter your gadget up with even more useless garbage.

Why Facebook?

Also Perturbed

Agree with other guy. Not everyone has Facebook. Not believing this is a serious app anymore. Embarrassing because I already called my police Captain and HOA and am wasting their time now. I was very excited about this since we have a level 3 sex offender and a heroin dealer in our small condo complex. There is a shared basement laundry and several single women with children.

Rendered useless by requiring Facebook


Kept it on my phone because it might one day prove useful. Last update required logging in with my Facebook account. I don't have one and won;t have one. I uninstalled the app. Remove the Facebook requirement and I will try it again.
