Sign-up to our Fobo App and be an ANGEL now!
ANGEL is a global network of volunteers with sole purpose of helping others locate their lost belongings and loved ones. How does it work? Fobo have developed FOBO MAX which users may tag on their child, pet or belongings. One of its core feature is an emergency activated network search when the child, pet or belonging goes missing. As an ANGEL, all you need to do is to download our app onto your iOS or Android device and let it run in background. In the event the missing FOBO MAX tag happens to near you, it would be relayed to the person searching for them. This requires absolutely no active role from you as an ANGEL.
