Companion: Mobile Personal Safety
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Companion lets you reach out to family, friends or your local police and have them keep an eye on you when you're on the move. Wherever you go, get there safely with a Companion!
All you have to do is enter your destination and select some contacts to be your Companions. They don't even need the app installed. These Companions see a live map of your progress and get updates as you make it from Point A to Point B. If you start running, don't make it to your destination on time, have your headphones yanked out or your phone falls to the ground, we will check in on you to make sure everything is okay. If you don't respond in 15 seconds, we will automatically alert your Companions.
You can also report areas in your community that make you uneasy. Simply tap the "I Feel Nervous" button and we'll pass this information on to your Companions.
If there's an emergency, you can call the police from our app with just two taps. We will connect you to the closest dispatcher.
Disclaimer: Continued use of GPS running in the background can decrease battery life.

Not so great for trail runners:
April 2017: Hey thx for the enhancements! I love being able to set my Wander for more than 30 minutes. Keep up the great service
Running or moving over rough terrain make the app think you're in danger or running from trouble. When you start wander mode you only get 30 minutes. It doesn't even give you a chance to extend it for another 10 or 30 minutes - it just tells your buddy it has ended, but they don't know if you're ok or not.
Companion is a much needed tool in today's society
This app is amazing ! As a single female I use it a great deal when I go out at night to meet friends. Because I live in a city without promised parking close to my apartment this app is ideal for safe entry and exit. Download the companion now! you will not be sorry !
I wish more people used this app! It's the best thing! I love how safe it makes me feel and let's my husband know when I make it to my destination safely. Also when I go for walks at nights. It's super easy to use, and the best if you have a family.
