It's a sad reality that even walking home can be unsafe, but this personal safety app lets your loved ones keep track of your security.

The 'Companion' app "lets your loved ones virtually walk you home." It's an unfortunate truth that it can be dangerous walking home and that can be especially true for women. There is a wide variety of people who can use this app, from students to people who have to walk home from work and it can be applicable for people of any age.

The app is simple; you plug in your destination, add your companion (of which there can be multiple) and the app will calibrate travel time. If there are instances where you feel unsafe, you can reach out to your companions or the local police with just a tap and if you cannot notify your companions when you are in trouble, the app will do it for you.
