Give yourself a name. We don’t record this, but your name will appear in the message the app will send out.
Fill in the details of the people who you want to be contacted in case of an emergency. You can do this manually or importing them from your address book. Click on the pen or the address book.
The wizard will give you the option to send a text message to your nominated contacts. Just to be sure that everything is working.
The app will ask you then for your permission to access your location while you are using the app. Please press “allow” to make the most of its abilities. If you press “don’t allow” the app will remind you that it cannot properly function when location services are turned off. If you want to use the app to send your location, you must go back to settings and activate location services.
That’s it! You are ready to go
You can change the contacts you want to alert in case of an emergency. You should always think who will be around to come to your help and adapt the list depending on where you are and what you are doing. For example, if you go to a festival, you want to put in the names of the people with you at the festival.
You can also personalise the message which will go out. We recommend leaving the reference to location in the message.
