Do you run a website or blog? Have a social media profile? Then there’s a simple, free, and effective way to feature and keep up with the FBI’s news, most wanted fugitives, and other information—our web widgets.

Launched in September 2007, our widgets were among the first in federal government and have since been added to thousands of websites around the world.

Today, to further expand these tools, we are introducing three new widgets based on recent FBI initiatives:

  • Safe Online Surfing, a free web-based program launched last October to help teachers educate students about cyber safety;
  • Most Wanted Bank Robbers, a new national website that enlists the public’s assistance in catching unknown bank robbers; and the
  • FBI Child ID App, a tool that provides parents with a place to store their children’s vital information to have at hand if needed and also provides tips on keeping kids safe and what to do if a child goes missing (for iPhones and Androids).

At the same time, we have updated the design and functionality of our previous six widgets. They include a Ten Most Wanted widget that features pictures of and information on each current Top Ten Fugitive, as well as a widget that lets you scroll through and play FBI videos in a single window.

To add the widgets, copy the small string of code from our widgets page and paste it into your own site or social media page wherever you want. No maintenance is needed. If you have installed our previous widgets, there’s no need to change anything on your site, since our links have remained the same. The technology is similar to stock tickers, weather updates, and other free widgets offered on the Internet.
