Push notifications to your countries

Now new: You can put "your" travel destinations on a pin board and immediately receive a push message from us if something changes in the travel and safety information.

Even if you allow the app to locate your location, you will automatically receive a push notification if the travel and safety information for the country in which you are currently located changes.
