Many new startups are focusing on family safety. With today’s hectic lifestyles and new travelling nomads, keeping track of loved-ones has become more important.
The Swedish Allone has developed a free-to-use mobile app for personal safety and trackability. The app allows selected people to keep track of where the user is and alarm them in an emergency. You can catch Allone at Slush Showcase.
In the same vein, BeeSafe defines itself as the next generation safety service. It periodically checks if the user is safe and sends emergency notifications to the user’s contacts, if something goes wrong. The app automatically calls for help when the users can’t do it themselves. In addition, it offers solutions for security agencies and the police.
A South-Korean startup iSharing also tackles personal safety issues. Concerned with the vast number of children that go missing every year, iSharing allows user to easily locate their friends and family. The app uses the latest GPS technology available to provide the most accurate GPS locations.
