Back Home / Mobile app

Back Home
Back Home



Back Home is a mobile phone app that cleverly uses fingerprint identification technology on mobile phones to help families find their lost members and to help those who are lost go home. The traditional method of finding a lost person is very difficult, the information is limited and inaccurate. Back Home app is committed to using the popular mobile phone fingerprint recognition technology to build a convenient and accurate tracing network, which will help more people in need return into their warm home!

If this app would be developed together with the UNHCR it could have a positive impact. My only question is how many people actually have access to an iphone? Maybe not enough?
We are very happy to receive the winning message and feel very honored. Through iF design competitions we know that "life changing design" must start from the little things in life. This award will encourage us to work harder to create more good designs.
