    Facebook has activated a feature that allows users to easily inform their friends and relatives that they are safe in response to the Brussels terrorist attacks Tuesday.

    The "Safety Check" feature was also activated after terrorist attacks in Paris and the floods in the Indian city of Chennai, among other recent emergencies. Through the feature, more than 950 million people received a notification that their friend or relative was safe following a crisis in 2015, according to a company statement.
