uAlert is a unique mobile app that is a necessity. Or at least it should be.
How it works
uAlert is a true emergency response system that uses your phone's GPS to locate you and, when you raise an alert, sends help your way. It is a "system" because there are teams of people actually involved; it isn't a mere self-functioning app. This is what differentiates this app from all other personal safety apps. It has been designed to offer the fastest and most efficient response in the event of an attack, notifying your friends and family, our centre and the local police. It also gives you access to 24/7 crisis phone counselling.
When the "Hi' alert button is pressed, not only is the police number in your designated country set up to dial out, but a video recording begins automatically and a short video is submitted to our centre. You have the option to send more video if you are able to.
We have a team of personnel standing by for assistance and can communicate directly with the user/victim. They are trained crisis intervention counselors and are available by phone 24/7. What's more, with the "assistU" feature, we are able to offer scheduled security services exclusively through our app. (The only feature where there's an additional charge.)
Additional free features include User Check-In, Missing Child Poster, My Diary, smart watch compatibility (where you can alert us even more quickly) and much more. It even has internal reporting and statistics that could help us identify the specific social problems on a global level.
