Instagram will also display RO-ALERT-style alerts, reporting missing people and other incidents

Meta confirms the activation of support for the so-called AMBER Alerts in 25 countries, including Romania. Similar to RO ALERT, however, the system has a lower priority.

The system is slightly different from the RO ALERT, in the sense that the delivered alerts are less urgent and can be permanently deactivated, if you want that. With a lower level on the priority scale, AMBER Alerts will target situations that affect the local community, appearing only if you are in the relevant location for that message.

For example, you will be able to find out through Instagram alerts about missing or exploited data, responding directly to the received message if you have useful information to provide.

Meta has implemented the new alert system together with the authorities in the countries of origin, which appear only if they have been issued on official channels.

“With this update, if an AMBER alert is triggered by law enforcement and you’re in the designated search area, the alert will now appear in your Instagram feed,” the Instagram blog says. The alert will include a photo of the missing child, description, last location and other available information. Instagram will use landmarks such as the IP address and exact location reported by location services (if enabled) and the city set in the user profile, to determine if you should receive an AMBER alert.
