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.
