Description

Have you ever been in a situation where you question whether it’s dangerous enough to call 911? Instead of worrying yourself with indecision, use SafeTrek. SafeTrek uses advanced technology to get emergency help to your exact location with just the release of a button. It can be used in moments where you simply feel unsafe, as well as moments where you need immediate emergency help. Here’s how simple it is: Press and hold the button whenever you feel uneasy. Release the button when you have reached your home, car, or a safe destination and enter your 4-digit pin. In danger? Simply release the button and do not enter your pin. Your local police will be notified of your location and emergency. Other SafeTrek Features • Prefer texting? If you can’t talk in an emergency, you can still communicate with us via text. • Can’t text or talk? No worries, we’re still sending police to your exact location. • On the move? We update your location even if you’re in a taxi, bus, running, or walking. • In a panic? You can use 3D Touch to trigger a silent alarm from your home screen. • On-call team works 24/7/365 to get you the help you need, when you need it. • In-app profile allows you to communicate important information before the fact, so emergency services are up to speed. • First month is free, so you can make sure SafeTrek is right for you! What do real SafeTrek users say about it: • “I have no doubts that this app will save a life one day” • “In short, this is an app you want on your phone and everyone's phone that you love. Real deal. No gimmicks. Just reliable safety when you need it the most.” • “It was such a relief to have access to SafeTrek at the touch of a button. It makes me feel safe even when I am alone.” SafeTrek only works if you have a subscription. In order to cover the cost of our 24/7 call centers that ensure your safety, SafeTrek charges a small monthly fee of $2.99. Payment will be charged to your iTunes account at confirmation of purchase, and will automatically renew unless you cancel your account at least 24 hours before the end of the current subscription month. Subscriptions may be managed by the user and auto-renewal may be turned off by going to the user's Account Settings after purchase. No cancellation of the current subscription is allowed during active subscription period.

  • So comforting!

    So worth the couple of bucks for the app and comforting to know I'm not alone and help is a button away. Being home alone or in certain areas at night are scary but this app is so easy to use and makes me so much safer!
  • So helpful!

    So helpful! I use it whenever I walk to my car alone. I even accidentally set the alarm off by not submitting my passcode in time and I was immediately called by SafeTrek staff to say police were on their way. I of course explained the situation and canceled the police but the SafeTrek staff was not even mad. She said she would rather be safe than sorry. It is so nice to know that SafeTrek responds so quickly and truly has everyone's safety in mind at all times.
  • Peace of Mind in a New City

    I spent the summer interning in a new city, out of state, where I knew almost no one and wouldn't have been easy to find had anything happened to me. Having SafeTrek gave me peace of mind so I could enjoy the experience and feel comfortable exploring and living on my own without the usual safety net of having friends and family around. I used the app several times but never needed them to contact the police for me. Additionally, the staff were very helpful when I had a payment issue through my Apple account. They have a built-in grace period for your subscription so your safety isn't compromised by a technical issue! I've since canceled my subscription because I'm back in my home city where I feel very safe, but I'm sure I will continue to subscribe as-needed for travel, conferences, etc.

    College campus's can be really scary at night and having this app makes me feel so much safer walking back to my dorm. So glad this app exists!

    I only gave four stars just I have not had the need to activate emergencies services through SafeTrek yet but I have spoken with the people from SafeTrek and they assure me as long as I have cell service or wifi, I will be able to activate SafeTrek. I walk to my car from work across a parking lot from 12am to 2am depending on the night and knowing that I can hold that button down until I'm safely in my car is very comforting. If I ever needed help, I can just release the button and the police would be on their way! I think the 2.99 per month is MORE THAN REASONABLE for at least my one peace of mind and at most, emergency services when I need them, just with the release of the button. I don't know why more people don't use this app!

    This is probably the smartest app I've ever bought in my life! I just went to a strangers home to look at a room for rent, and had this in my hand the whole time. I felt incredibly safe! Thank you so much!

    WHY THE HECK DIDN'T YOU JUST SAY "OH YOU HAVE TO PAY MONTHLY" IN THE BEGINNING!? I AM SO ANGRY SO I DELETED IT! I bet I can find a better app that dose NOT make you pay MONTHLY!
  • Money In Exchange For Safety?

    It's astonishing that they feel it's appropriate to be profiting off of the safety of millions of lives. And even those of you who do happen to pay for this app, the money should at least be going towards a specific cause or charity. It would increase the comfortability level amongst those who are hesitant about purchasing this app because in exchange for our safety, we would at least be helping a community. But I guess I'll just stick to the ancient 911 calling.
