Safety Check on Facebook Lite now available in PH
Facebook has announced that Safety Check is now available on the Facebook Lite app in more than 100 countries. This enables people in low connectivity areas to let their friends and family know whether or not they are safe in the wake of a crisis.
“Our goal is to build tools that help keep people safe and make it easier to get the help you need to recover from a crisis. By making Safety Check available on Facebook Lite, even more people will be able to easily connect with friends and family to let them know that they’re safe following a crisis and check on others.” said Asha Sharma, Facebook’s Product Lead for Social Good.
The Facebook Lite app, which launched for Android back in 2015, is a watered-down version of the main app that allows access to Facebook by people in low-connectivity areas, even with a lower-tier Android phone or with a 2G signal.
