Windshieldink’s goal is to improve everyone’s experience on the road by continuing to expand our license plate messaging platform for the public good. Our online service called Alerter is designed to help with amber alerts and help locate missing vehicles. For example, it will allow you to check on that strange vehicle parked in your back alley. The Alerter service works inside our mobile app. There is no need to do anything different while using the app to access the Alerter databases.
What is Windshieldink?
Windshieldink is a free mobile vehicle messaging platform launched in late 2016. The app allows anyone to make themselves reachable via their license plate number should an issue arise with their vehicle. With Windshieldink there is no excuse why you can’t be contacted if your car is going to be towed or if your car alarm is going off. Though our app is designed for license plate messaging, the integration of Windshieldink Alerter provides added benefits to our users and the general public.
How does Alerter work?
You are a police department looking for a stolen vehicle. You are a trucking company looking for a missing trailer. Perhaps the public can help you find what you are looking for.
Our Alerter database allows you to post the license plate, vehicle description, and a user instruction message. Any member of the public concerned about a suspicious vehicle that seems out of place can use our app to verify the license plate. The app automatically checks the Alerter database to see if an authority in any location is looking for that vehicle.
If the license plate is posted Alerter, an in-app pop-up message will verify the vehicle description and display information identifying the authority looking for it. Using the app, a person easily sends a direct message to that authority. The message can be sent anonymously and can include a GPS location for the vehicle. Even if the vehicle is from a different jurisdiction, the app will flag the vehicle as an alert vehicle if it is registered with Alerter.
Windshieldink wants to help
Our goal is to give the public a simple way of helping the authorities find missing vehicles. We will continue to move forward to expand with even more great services built upon our platform. We’re driven by our objective to be one of the most useful apps for vehicle owners and we’re committed to bringing innovative solutions to drivers everywhere.
