The app that could save your life

SafeTrek is perfect for college students who often walk alone

If you’re walking through a dangerous area, there are a lot of things you should do to ensure your safety, and we know you’ve probably heard all those warnings before. But in a sketchy situation, things can happen fast and you don’t always have time or ability to take action like calling the police.

SafeTrek, an app available for iPhone and Android users, is simple. If you’re walking through a dangerous area, you open the app and press down on the “safe” button. You hold the button until you’re safe, and then once you release, you have 10 seconds to key in your pin code. If you are in a bad situation, you release the button and don’t type in your pin code, and local police are notified of your location and name.

It’s extremely simple, and requires very little action from you should you be in danger. You don’t have to worry about fumbling around to dial the numbers quickly, or to reach for a deterrent like pepper spray.

The app was developed by college students, for college students. It costs $2.99 per month and is available to purchase for both iPhones and Androids.
