Since we’ve had smartphones, nobody can remember any phone numbers by heart. This includes children and teens, who now have the latest mobile phones from an early age. But what should they do, for example, if the battery runs out and they have to contact someone urgently? In such cases, knowing their parents’ phone numbers without the help of technology may prove vital. That’s why Missing Children Europe has created Remumber, an app that replaces the code to unlock their tablet or mobile phone with their parents phone number. Just by repeating an action several times every day, children can then practice remembering the number, so that they are ready to dial it in an emergency situation.
