Verena is a personal security system for the LGBTQ+ community, giving you the tools you need to keep you safe while you live as the person you were meant to be.

Create an account, and develop a network of emergency contacts, who can be alerted without leaving a trace on your phone.

Use the emergency feature to be guided through your problem, giving you the resources you need to get out of the emergency safely.

Create incident logs to keep track of abuse, hate crimes, or bullying for reference and later reportation.

Select the preferences that match your situation, such as using incognito mode to hide the app behind a math user interface, shutdown which can permanently disable the app if found by an abuser, and emergency access which allows you to alert all of your contacts with the press of a button.

Open resources to find and get routed to hospitals, shelters, and police stations near you.

Use timer to set a specified amount of time. If the timer isn’t canceled, Verena will send an emergency alert to all contacts with your last known location.

Select location to see your current location, the distance between you and your different contacts, and get routed to them as well.

Use Verena to protect and help you through domestic violence, hate crimes, abuse, and bullying.

You have an amazing future ahead of you. Verena makes sure you get there.

Is this app amazing? Incredible? Spectacular? It’s all of the above! I have recommended to it to several friends of mine who have felt insecure and it has helped them tremendously. The idea and concept of this app is absolutely stupendous. For those who feel unsafe and unadvertised, please get this app and recommend it to others. It’s apps like these that shape together a bright and safe future.

Silly nonsense


This app hides itself as a math tutor? Isn’t the community this app intends to aid supposed to be proud and courageous, yet hides and identifies itself as a math app???

Click on Shelter and you get Shelter Insurance or Animal Shelter. Click on hospital and you get Animal Hospitals. Click on Emergency and you have to play 21 Questions to get an answer. 911 still works on any phone.

This app sounds like a pity party for a selective group. Enjoy if you like to scribble down reminders of why you’re depressed and set yourself a timer to go back and remind yourself.



I absolutely love this app. I found it through tumblr and have had it ever since. I've thankfully never had to use it to date, but I have recommended it to some less fortunate friends of mine. I love the idea, I love the execution, it is an amazing app and I wholeheartedly support it.
