myPlan is backed by Johns Hopkins University research, done with thousands of people experiencing partner abuse. A few things users say about myPlan:

"This may have saved my life, I never thought of putting together a safety plan before”

"It wasn't until I was going through all of the questions that I realized just how bad things really are. Sometimes your vision and mind become clouded just to make it through the day and cope"

"myPlan gave a lot of really, like solid concrete, advice as to what to do for a friend, people don’t know what to say and how to say it."

Safety Notes:

- Abusive people often monitor their partner’s device and online activity. You might not even know it’s happening. Having an app about relationship abuse could put you at risk. If you are concerned about someone discovering myPlan, please take steps to use it as safely as possible.
- The safest way to use myPlan is on a device your partner doesn’t have access to. Abusers often monitor their partner’s device activity. Having an app about relationship abuse could put you at risk. If you are worried about someone discovering the app,
- Make sure your device activity isn’t visible to your partner through “family sharing”. Alert: If family sharing is enabled, your partner may get a notification if you change the settings.
- Make sure your device is not connected to other devices a partner could see through cloud sync (iCloud or Google Cloud)
- dDelete myPlanit when you are done using. with it, but know it’s not always possible to delete completely from your purchase history. Alert: It’s not possible to delete apps from your purchase history on Apple devices. You can “hide” purchases on your own device, but they can still be discovered, and it will not be hidden from a family member’s purchase history if family sharing is enabled. myPlan is also available by web browser if you don’t want to download it (
- myPlan is not meant for use if you are in immediate danger – call 911.
- myPlan is not meant to replace real live trained domestic violence advocates and service providers. We know most people experiencing abuse never access formal services. myPlan expands access to personalized safety information with the ease of access and privacy of a device, but we encourage all users to reach out to a professional.

I love how accessible and safe this app is. I work as a sexual assault advocate and recommend it to my clients and shelter guests all the time. It's an easy way to plan for your safety while keeping yourself safe. It has tons of resources for help online and in your area. It even let's you help friends and family who may be in dangerous and abusive situations. The safety protocols in place are amazing!

A good app for evaluating a toxic relationship. Provides helpful information & support strategies. But it's super frustrating that it constantly exists & makes you re-enter the app, making it difficult & sometimes impossible to get back to where you were!

Thank you for your feedback! Some of the functionality of the app to exit completely out is for safety reasons, but we agree that not being able to get back to where you were can be frustrating and is on our list to re-develop when funding allows.

This app is gender inclusive even though the description says it's for women only. This can be used for anyone experiencing DV. We used this all of the time in my previous agency for safety planning for survivors. It was well created and is available in Spanish too!
