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.

Pros and cons of SafeTrek - Personal Safety app for iPhone and iPad
SafeTrek - Personal Safety app good for
I am a female business owner. I have a vintage rental company and often need to pick up furniture and props from weddings or parties that run late into the night or early into the morning. Since I work all over the Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex, I cannot possibly be totally familiar with ALL of the locales I service, so I try to stay very situationally aware AND use this app as an extra layer of personal security as I approach and leave any venue. While I have thankfully never needed to utilize the app for cause, I did have a recent accidental deployment and I IMMEDIATELY received a text AND a phone call to verify my emergency. During the phone call, I had a pleasant conversation with a LIVE call center employee who truly seemed to care less about the false alarm than she did about confirming my emergency, assuring my safety and answering any questions I had about using the app. Later in the day, I received yet another text following up on the earlier encounter and again underscoring concern for my safety. THIS APP is technically sound, has an intuitive user interface, and an outstanding customer service team supporting it . And lastly, since not all 911 psaps (public safety answering points) can locate you from a cell phone, this app fills an important void.
Hmmmm how do you cancel your account because I cant find how I was just trying the app for the free trial Please HELP!!!
Ive had this app over a year and have never had to use it to its full potential. This morning I accidentally pocket dialed the app. The people behind the app texted to see if I was okay, called twice, and texted one more time before alerting authorities. All of this happened in under a minute before I realized my phone was vibrating in my pocket. I was luckily able to cancel the alert. They texted me one more time to make sure I was okay before reassuring me that false alarms happen sometimes. Later in the day one of the founders of the app even texted me to make sure all was well after the false alarm. Seeing the amount of effort and compassion put into this product really confirms my trust in the app. Even if you dont think youll ever need it, a product like this with a team like the one I experienced today could make all the difference in a bad situation. I fully support and appreciate the team that assured my safety this morning (and double checked this evening) after I accidentally called for help.
Im a college student at one of the largest universities in the US - this app is THE app that lets me feel safe when I have to be out late for work, studying, or hanging out because my university doesnt have many parking options. In the instance that you have to use this app and dont put in your pin before the timer reaches 0, REAL people text and call you to help. All college students should have this app. This app also has an Apple Watch version, very discreet. Its clear the people running this app have thought about many situations people may be in and have worked to accommodate them. Love safe trek!!!
I accidentally opened this app and it sent a false alarm but I was notified that the police were being contacted and since it was false I quickly canceled it by entering my pin. I immediately received a text from one of the safe trek workers verifying my safety so the police alert could be canceled. It was amazing how fast they were! Then later in the day another different member texted me to further verify my safety. Everyone needs this app for sure. I am so impressed great job to the creators of this app!
So happy to have learned about this awesome app!!
I work late at night and walking out to my car or to dump trash isnt fun by yourself after dark.
This is the primary reason I got this but now I use it for so much more like walking in the parking deck or leaving alone after a night out.
Thankfully Ive had no issues but accidentally set off alarm one evening.
Immediately a safe trek rep called and also text me to make sure I was okay, if I had not responded back the police would have been called immediately. its comforting that this adds a extra layer of protection that 911 cannot because safe trek is tied to my cell, so the $3 a month is well worth the peace of mind when I need someone to walk me out, and have them available 24/7 to do so!
Its also comforting to know by my mistake of accidentally activating alarm just how on top of it they are and not some computer, I even got a very nice text the next day checking on me again. 5 stars and 5 more!!!
Some bad moments
This is a great idea for an app, and I know the people who made the app have to make money somehow, but a lot of people will not keep the app when they have to pay $2.00 a month. They should make to where you have to pay like 3-5 dollars up front for the app and then get all the apps functions, this app will save a lot of lives and reduce kidnappings by a lot.
If they were truly concerned about saving lives, the app should be free. People shouldnt have to pay for help. Make it accessible to all!
I dont want to have to pay for the app, or do a free trial.. If it was going to force me to pay, then it should have made you pay for the app.. I hate it. Not worth wasting space.
I walk from school after my cheer/dance practice is done. It is always dark outside when I walk and I live 10 mins away from my school so it takes me about an hour to walk home. I was on Instagram at my house, and I heard about this app SafeTrek. I thought it would be a great thing to have when walking home alone from school.
One day I was walking home, and it was darker than usual because we had a basketball game and they last forever. I was walking home and I decided to whip out the app. I opened it and I made an account and I was all set. Then something popped up, I read it and it said I had to pay for it. My parents wont let me even buy music or any apps you have to pay for, so how am I supposed to use this and keep myself safe. That was also the night when an amber alert decided to go off in my area saying there was a robber in my area. Ive never been more scared in my life.
This app is great for ppl who can afford $3 a month. I just downloaded it and was ready to use it except to see I have to pay which isnt a good thing because lots of ppl in emergencies need the app but was if they cant pay for it whose gonna keep them safe then?
Look, I love this app, Ive been using it since it first came out and I appreciate it. But now I guess theyve started charging monthly which is frankly appalling. I cannot get on board with something that puts a price on peoples safety. So Ive deleted it. I encourage the creator of this application to take away the monthly fee. Some of us cant spare 2.99 a month which is very sad but true.
and other. So, download free SafeTrek - Personal Safety .ipa to run this nice iOS application on iPhone and iPad.
