The official SAIP (système d’alerte et d’information des populations) app from the French authorities is a new hub that can alert users of any potential exceptional events or terror attacks that may occur. The app is available for both Android and iOS. Highly recommended when traveling to France.
The app is in both French and English, depending on your preference. With the SAIP app installed, it will alert the users as to when they should be within or enter an at-risk zone. It’s also possible to set up to 8 cities to receive notifications should events trigger in one of them. Advice and instructions will be provided for the alert that may be shown.The government said the app was developed after November’s attacks in Paris. The country remains on high alert, especially with the upcoming Euro 2016 football tournament. You can download the SAIP app for Android from the Google Play Store.
