We Tell You The Disturbing Reason Why You Should Always Take Photos Of Your Hotel Room Wherever You Go

The world can be a dark and unforgiving place.

But there are more good and decent people on this Earth than they are those who are evil. And if we, as a species, get together and do something about it, we can change it. One of the more darker parts of our evils is human trafficking. Specifically, child trafficking.

The TraffickCam app is a free app that uses good samaritans to locate lost individuals. And the process is actually pretty simple.

You download the app, and every time you’re in a hotel, you take four pictures from different angles, and upload it with the name and address. This builds a database for the police to work with, and helps in locating them.

TraffickCam developer Abby Stylianou has commented on the whole procedure.

“You just enter your hotel room, and your room number. You take four pictures, and you submit them to the website. And then those become part of the pipeline that law enforcement can use to track down where the victims are being trafficked.

Right now there are pictures posted every day. Hundreds of pictures, in every city around the United States, posted online, that show victims of trafficking, in hotel rooms posed on beds,”

Since it’s creation, the app has compiled a database of over 1.5 million photos of hotels across the world. It might not seem like much, but even an ocean is made up of droplets.
