Mobile safety app Parachute’s new feature prevents anyone from turning off your live-streamed video

Mobile safety app Parachute is today rolling out a new feature that will prevent an unauthorized person who grabs your iPhone to stop it from recording live video, even if they attempt to turn off the phone entirely. The timely update arrives amid the nationwide George Floyd protests against police brutality and the systemic racism present in the American justice system.
Bystander video of Floyd’s death triggered the demonstrations and protests, and video has continued to serve as key documentation of those events.
The Parchute app, which first launched at TechCrunch Disrupt 2015 as “Witness,” has long described itself as a panic button for the smartphone age. The app is intended to alert your emergency contacts when you’re in trouble — by simultaneously calling, texting, and emailing and by sending them your live video, audio, and location straight from your current location.
