A New Way to Enhance Your Personal Safety
As the summer is now at its peak, evenings out are becoming the norm for many. Drinks after work to make the most of the longer nights and warmer weather is all too tempting. Although this is a great time of year, it can also have its dark side.
Personal safety can be compromised as we drink more and choose to walk home instead of getting a taxi. It’s something that can be taken for granted, especially when the nights are light.
If you find yourself walking home alone or have children away at university, for example, personal safety is going to be a concern for you. For many, the thought of having a mobile phone is enough to feel safe, but is it?
In this blog, we’re going to take you through our solution to personal safety which turns your phone into a virtual 24/7 security guard.
Crime in the UK
In January this year, the police reported a 19% rise in violent crime recorded in England and Wales and in 2019, the chances of being a victim of crime are one in five. The figures are unsettling, making personal security a top priority.
When walking alone, especially at night, the most personal security any of us have is a mobile phone. However, this has its flaws as if the worst were to happen, calling the emergency services may not be possible. This leaves us vulnerable and without any real protection.
What’s the solution to personal safety?
At Re:Sure, we recognised that a mobile phone alone is not always sufficient when it comes to personal safety. Working with leading technologists, we set out to create a solution that would provide people with a virtual security guard 24/7.
Re:Sure Go offers a new level of safety for you and your family.
How does it work?
The platform transforms your mobile phone into a personal security app with a panic alarm which is connected to our live security team 24/7.
When out and about, you simply activate the Re:Sure Go app, which will connect you to our live security team. In the case that something were to happen, one simple shake of your phone will alert our control centre, sending us your exact GPS location and video/audio clips of what is happening.
Immediately, Re:Sure will put into place the protocols which you will have already outlined. We will contact you, your emergency contacts and alert the authorities if necessary.
This is a security solution which can be with you 24/7, 365 days a year. Whether you use it when in unfamiliar surroundings when running or walking home at night. You can also download the app on family member’s phones giving you the peace of mind you need when they are away from home.
How much does it personal safety cost?
The app starts from £8.00 per month and you can find a free month trial here.
