Friend Verifier App checks your Facebook friend list with the National Sex Offender Registry

PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. - A new app for Facebook called "Friend Verifier App" checks your friend list against the National Sex Offender Registry.

The "Friend Verifier App " alerts users if any of their friends are on the registry.  It's a free app.

Parent Susan Bullock thinks it's a useful idea.  "I think it will be great because kids are always adding friends.  It's a contest to see who has the most friends," she said.

The scan color codes results. 

Yellow means there is a name match. 

Orange means there is a name and a location match. 

Red means the friend's name, location and date of birth matches a sex offender's.
