Trick-or-treating is a favorite October pastime for most kids. Not everyone has religious beliefs that forbid the celebration of this holiday.

Now for the good stuff.  Down below are three apps for your smartphone that can be very helpful with the safety of children.

Check it out:

1.  Family Locator. It is a real-time GPS locator. Just log on to phone and a map will show up.

2.  Red Panic Button. This is really an SOS button that is very simple for kids to access.  Parents will automatically get a text with the location of their child. Multiple people can be put on a contact list for added peace of mind.

3.  Life360.  If there is a problem, people can be seen on a map in real time. Alerts can be sent and one can set limits on the boundaries.

BTW, enjoy the video.
