VERIFY: Everything you need to know about today's 'presidential alert'
05 October 2018, 04:40 | Cameron Gross
What Is the “Presidential Alert” Popup on Your Phone Today?
All phones were supposed to have alerted at 1:18 p.m. CDT. After filling in the message form, two other FEMA officials are asked to sign off on the alert - a system created to prevent false alarms, like the incorrect alert of an incoming missile that roused and terrified people in Hawaii earlier this year. According to FEMA, the body of the text will let people know that it's only a test and no action is needed.
"There is no opting out of the presidential alert, which would only be used in a national emergency", confirms a senior FEMA official.
Failla said the claims were too speculative to block the test.
A subsequent investigation by the Federal Communications Commission found that the staffer responsible for the message had thought an attack was truly underway, having misinterpreted a drill.
Despite Wednesday's message, this is not a presidential alert system.
FEMA officials have said the Hawaii incident played no role in the scheduling of Wednesday's test. But FEMA officials said the administration can only send these alerts for emergencies affecting the whole country or if the public was in danger, according to Bloomberg.
But some people with phones that met these criteria did not receive the text message. Among the details people who did not get the alert should send: What device they use, their wireless provider, whether they were using their phone when the alert went out, and whether others nearby received the alert. "No action is required".
The wireless alert system was launched in 2012.
Some cellphone users received a message with a header that reads "Presidential Alert".
Still, a group of New Yorkers is suing in federal court saying they can't be forced to receive the alerts because they violate their right to free speech.
The judge asked a government lawyer if there were standards in place to prevent someone from using the system for political purposes. That's especially important because no one can opt out of these alerts, he said. Expect the same double beep and vibration as you would receiving the other alerts.
