KepApp is the official Kep Italia new app, available for free on App Store and Google Play.
KepApp allows you to save your personal data and all the information related to your helmets (date of purchase, product code, etc. useful for the warranty).
With the new Cromo 2.0, the KepApp user experience is even more functional: Cromo 2.0 is equipped with an internal NFC chip that increases the level of safety. With the KepApp you can register your personal data on your helmet, including health, allergies and an emergency number. In the event of an accident, first responder will be able to read this information simply by placing a mobile device near to the helmet. You don’t need the KepApp installed to read the data, so first aid procedures will be more effective.

If you are unconscious how can you tell the paramedic that you have medical issues that they need to know about? The KepApp will do it for you.
So how does NFC work? NFC isn’t some radically new technology. It’s simply an evolution of RFID (radio frequency identification) technology that has already been around for decades. If you’ve ever used a key card to access an office building or hotel room, you’re already familiar with how it works.
NFC, only has a maximum range of a few centimetres and and in most smartphone-related applications, you’ll find that the software will only initiate communication if there’s physical contact. This is to prevent accidental triggers — especially important now that the technology is used for transferring sensitive data. Which is important for your personal privacy.
The NHS have been using this technology for years, so you are in safe hands with Kep and the NHS if anything terrible happens.
