Time to talk about Halloween Safety. I’ve got info for you about an AWESOME and FREE safety app called REACT Mobile. You are gonna want to try this out . . .
The REACT Mobile app turns your smartphone into a powerful safety tool. You can turn the app on and using the GPS signal, it “follows you” and maps the route you have taken so that if something happened to you, your people would know where you were last. It also has an emergency alert button to alert your specific contacts AND 911 if you are in great danger.
How It Works:
You open the app and you’ll see the screen above. It has the SOS Alert on the front page. This is where you can alert 911 and any contacts you’ve set up. THIS IS FOR AN EMERGENCY. Don’t go pushing it unless you really need it. It alerts them even if they do not have the app. You can also have it alert social media as well.
For everyday safety use the Follow Me feature. To start the Follow Me feature, you tap the yellow button on the top right. It brings up this page:
WHY I LIKE IT
The React Mobile company asked me to try this app out. I definitely wanted to because I have a tween and I know that someday she’ll have a phone and I’ll want to know where she is or make sure she gets places safely as she gains more independence. This is perfect to send with your teen who is out on Halloween night or just to take yourself.
I also like that I can use it for myself. When I have to drive to an unknown area by myself or if I am out jogging alone, this gives me one more safety tool. We tried it out and it worked. I alerted My Man when I went out to a bigger city and he followed my route to make sure I was okay. It’s great for college students who have to walk around campus alone or someone who travels a lot.
I say, it’s worth a try. It’s FREE too. BE SAFE and Happy Halloween.
