The Companion App Ensures the Safety of Travelers

 - May 23, 2017
The Companion app is a platform that ensures users' safety while they are traveling both locally and abroad.

The app is relatively simple to use, with users simply entering their destination or the "Wander Mode' roaming feature in order for it to work. Prior to using the app's safety features, users can add family and friends from their contacts, who are able to monitor their location and status in real-time. If the user is in an unsafe situation, or feels somewhat nervous, they are able to notify their companions, with the app first asking if the user is "OK" in order to enable this feature.

Users of the Companion app are also able to call the local police with just one tap, ensuring their safety in any precarious situation.
