INSTANT TEXT NOTIFICATIONS
The Virtual Halo cloud service sends notifications through text message to your emergency contacts, indicating the nature of the message (SOS, Check In, or an activity you’re participating in), your nearest location and a link to your specific location on the default map application your trusted contacts device uses.
PRIVACY IS IN YOUR HANDS
At no time are you actively being tracked. As the user, you are in complete control over who gets notifications and when they get them; no one can actively track you through Virtual Halo (not even us)! We’ve got your back and your privacy and safety are our biggest concerns.
The SOS feature notifies your emergency contacts that you are in trouble, with the nearest street address to your current location and web link to that location on a map. Free to use without subscription with up to one Emergency Contact.
Check IN gives you a way to let your contacts know you’re OK, with an optional message and linked location. It’s a great way to let those close to you know that you’re safe, that you landed at an airport, or arrived at your destination. (Subscription required)
Going Out is a proactive feature where you select your activity and duration; if something happens that keeps you from disabling the feature before the time you chose, it will send a notification to your emergency contacts letting them know your last known location, activity, and when you were supposed to be back. (Subscription required)

Ratings and Reviews
Reliable Safety App
I found this app while looking for a way to implement a tighter safety system for my family. We recently got these watches and this app really brought out the functionality. It has the necessary SOS feature which is needed for safety. The UI of the app is also nice and the premium version gives a lot of other features. The map is also accurate and doesn’t show false locations. Though I haven’t had any SOS calls yet, it will prove handy whenever the occasion arises. It’s stable and has no crashing problems and I really recommend this app.
Must Have App - Easy to Use!!
This is one of the great apps I have ever came across. I was trying to find an app which sends notifications to my contacts in case emergency. I stumbled upon this app, let me tell this is a great app and I am surprised why it is not on Apple favorite list. I will recommend this app to anyone in a heartbeat.
I've wondered why no one had made an app for this... Especially the Going Out feature. Well done! There are a couple minor flaws in the app, so 4 stars instead of 5. But overall, well done!
