The Anti-Data Theft, Spyware and Privacy Protection feature has recently been added to the MDDR app and links to your user profile. You can protect your data and prevent hackers or individuals who are trying to illegally track you, spy on you or steal your passwords, this feature is currently under development. This has become a necessary data protection measure with the increase of online banking, online shopping and smartphone location services.
MDDR (Mobile Device Data Recorder) is for tracking, tracing, and positioning for high-level priority crimes, hostage recovery and investigations in South Africa. MDDR is in partnership with the SAPS, The Hawks and Crime Intelligence. TrackBox uses the MDDR system, which is like an aircraft data recorder (black box) and is only used for high-level investigation and life-saving intervention purposes. By accessing your mobile device data recording, the collection of such information will assist and facilitate the investigation of high priority cases such as -
• Armed House Robbery
• Hostage Location
• Missing Persons
• Serious & Violent Crime
• Device Anti-Theft & Recovery Assistance
There are steps on the Trackbox website to be followed for full access to be granted. Your data will at no point be released to your emergency contacts or the general public – it remains completely confidential. Please visit the Trackbox.world website for instructions on the necessary procedures.
SA CAN launched Project Mustard Seed in March 2016. Project Mustard Seed is a continuous collaborative effort between TrackBox Users, SAPS, Crime Intelligence, The Hawks, Operation Command Centres, War Rooms, K9 Unit, thirty-nine 10111 Centres, Snipr, Recoveri Microdot, ProtectaDNA, Together SA CAN NPO and TrackBox Technologies (Pty) Ltd. We know there is no quick-fix solution to the crime problem South Africa faces, but this project is one of the best community based solutions currently available. Currently Project Mustard Seed’s Stats stands at the following:
1013 Arrests | 159 Identified Suspects | 216 Recovered Weapons | 43 Recovered Persons
Trackbox (Pty) Ltd & X-IN (Pty) Ltd acknowledges that vehicles are without a doubt the most used tool in the commission of crimes in South Africa. Transport gives criminals the freedom of mobility to operate wherever and whenever they choose, striking with speed, precision and force. Vehicles are therefore a critical component in the way criminal syndicates operate.
All South Africans need to become empowered to take action, knowing that the information they receive and share is accurate, valid, and comes from a trusted source. This advanced function of the Vehicle Check Centre can be compared to highly trained elite snipers who eliminate positively identified threats from a safe distance.
Access to these emergency services is granted through Trackbox (Pty) Ltd using the Emergency Panic Response button.
TrackBox SNIPR Suspicious Vehicle Checks is a national collaboration of TrackBox Technologies (Pty) Ltd, SNIPR ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition), eNaTIS, SAPS, The Hawks, Operational Command Centres, War Rooms, Crime Intelligence, Violent Crimes & Technology Support NPO (VCAT), SANRAL, SANParks, KZN Wildlife, ProtectaDNA, Recoveri Microdot, Vehicle Tracking Companies, Security Companies, community crowdsourcing, and the national network of the Emergency Response & Prevention Centres (EPRC).
The initiative is powered and managed by Together SA CAN NPO and VCAT NPO Violent Crimes & Technology Support. In this way we can do a proper vehicle check:
• You will get issued a case number.
• We add this vehicle of interest to the ANPR national database (Automatic License Plate Recognition).
• The intelligence is never lost.
• We have a proper legal process to find each vehicle reported.
Members on the premium version of the Trackbox App as well as members who have chosen their ERPC as the Emergency Panic Response Button or the X-IN International Anti Human Trafficking Button will have their cases registered on the Incident Management and Information Capturing System (IMICS) and each case is left open until completion of the case.
The Emergency Panic Button has access to the full services of Trackbox services in handling cases. Trackbox handles more than 200 case types! These cases have anything to do with crime, medical, fire and rescue, kidnapping, Traffic incidents, traffic alerts, animal welfare, care theft, house robberies, crisis centres, municipal support, bee and snake removal, farm murders, murder, rape and now human trafficking. We deal with cases such as “Poaching with Dogs” and so much more! There is no situation that they cannot intervene in. They even deal with hostage recovery; there is absolutely no scenario they can not deal with!
Members of the Emergency Panic Response button or the X-IN Anti Human Trafficking button receive their own ‘Vault’ where all their personal information is stored like their next of kin and emergency family or friends contact numbers. This App and Vault has level 4 security, the same as banks, so no one can access it without your approval!
If needed Trackbox will use a VCAT Bell 407 Helicopter to save lives, to provide an immediate response of which Emergency Panic Response Members and X-IN Anti Human Trafficking Button Members have access too! They are faster and better than any other service in terms of time, as we know, every second counts to save lives!

This synthetic solution contains a UV Tracer and DNA code, uniquely coded for each application such as an alarm system device for a premises, safety protection products and animal identification to irrefutably (through forensic testing) link the fleeing criminal to the scene of the crime. This is carried out by StratTech, TrackBox Technologies, SAPS, VCAT NPO (Violent Crimes & Technology Support) and Lancet Laboratories.
A world first with multiple responses and actions simultaneously.
A small lightweight device that genetically marks the perpetrator with an indistinguishable DNA marker- combined with a UV fluid and pepper spray – not only fends off the immediate danger, but also alerts those who can assist.
DNA can be swabbed for a minimum of three months or up to nine months later on a human, and years on physical articles.
Activating the IproTech device, triggers multiple responses and simultaneous which is a world first:
1. Unique DNA marking fluid.
2. UV marking.
3. Immobilizing pepper spray concentrate.
4. Unique scent detectable by specially trained dogs.
5. Activation of GPS Panic .
6. Captured photo of attacker.
7. GPS position of device (not the phone).
8. Time and Date of Attack.
9. Siren to attract attention ( 40 decibels).
But it doesn’t stop there. The device doubles as an alarm while on charge. While on wireless charge it can be armed/disarmed via infrared and will auto activate on intruder detection. Visit iProtech for more information.
