Main Communication channels - Red Panic Button

SMS Panic Message

By pushing the Red Button the application will send your current position and address (in the form of a Google Maps link) to all the numbers found in your panic contact list, not only a single person as the case with standard SMS. Such list can be a true life saver in difficult

The E-mail Panic Message

The iOS platform also allows you to send supplemental information (i.e. the local time when the position was taken from the GPS). You can also customize both the body and the subject of the email with the help of the application.

The Twitter Panic Message

The app allows you to post in real time a panic tweet to your entire list of friends and followers, revealing your current address and a Google Maps link. This is probably one of the most “viral” methods of disclosing your locationto a large number of people if you find yourself in a dire situation. The app is linked to a Twitter Panic feature, so your friends will know you need assistance.

Unlimited Number of Contacts

The premium app version allows you to add an unlimited number of contacts to your emergency contact list. This way, your distress call can reach any number of contacts.

In the case the numbers are not properly formatted for dialing when roaming, you can choose the country prefix and then send the message.
