About this app

Improve your own, your family, friends, or employee’s safety when alone, or in isolated locations.

If someone’s recommended you try this App, you're lucky to have people who care about you.

This is the Swiss pocket-knife of emergency SOS services, it’s easy-to-use & gets help fast from people you know and trust, 24/7.

Getting your family, friends, fellow workers, or a manager alerted of details of the emergency you’re facing, with your location, as well as calling emergency services in a single button, makes sense, doesn’t it?

--- What & why we do things differently to others ---

1) Some apps only send SMSs, so do we but we also CALL emergency contacts, because few people read an SMS at 3am or when driving.

2) Other apps force everyone in a network to have the same app, sending alerts via in-app notifications, but in weak data coverage or when data roaming turned off, alerts are missed, with us ONLY the user needs this App.

3) Other apps focus on tracking users, users must get in touch with someone in advance who agrees to monitor the trip, but after 20/30 uneventful trips, people become less vigilant, that’s why we don’t track users.

4) Everyone get loads of group 'messenger' app notifications, that’s why people tend to ignore them, you can’t afford delays when urgency is vital, unlike others we don’t send alerts via any other messenger App (popular or not).

> In contrast, this App is designed for both the user & their emergency contacts.

--- Intelligent innovation for everyone ---

Within 2 seconds of pressing the button, emergency contacts' phones start ringing.

The 2-way alerting service asks emergency contacts to take charge, when one of them does, we instantly update everyone else (and you), providing details of who is dealing with the situation and where they are.

This prevents your emergency contacts from panicking, duplicating actions, and making the situation even more stressful than it needs to be, because they have visibility and know who is helping.

This App will work even if there is no WIFI or data

--- Your personal Guardian Angel ---

When entering a potentially dangerous or problematic situation, location or starting an activity, simply set the SOS Countdown Timer, which is as easy as setting a wake-up alarm.

If something happens, and it's impossible to press the panic button, be confident everyone will still be alerted when the countdown reaches zero.

--- Feature Packed ---

The App has lots of short-cuts to trigger alerts for example hands-free voice activation from within the App or at the lock-screen. Explore the App settings and pick your favourite one(s).

--- Alexa Enabled ---

Have any Amazon Alexa at home? use your voice to send an SOS with this App.
Simply link to our ‘My SOS Family’ Alexa Skill from within the App or within Alexa,

--- Landline Enabled ---

Have a Landline at home? Go to our app settings & tell us via “Ask a question” & we’ll set-up your landline to send alerts like this app.

--- Wear OS ---

The App is available as a companion App for Wear OS devices, it can run independently on wear devices with SIM cards, but you must download it on your phone first.

>>> No other SOS provider gives you all these benefits <<<

--- Accessibility API ---
In order to allow the Power Button Long Press event to trigger alerts, the App requires access to the Accessibility service API. To enable this feature, user should grant Accessibility permission.
The App uses accessibility capabilities only to achieve the Power Button long press event and Accessibility API does not collect any personal information other than the location.
My SOS Family collects location data to send your latest location in alerts even when the app is closed or not in use.

I posted a review earlier giving the app one star since most everything they offer for a fee is already available on my phone for free. They have been very responsive and we have had a good dialogue about other features I feel it needs. Primary among them is the fact that for the SOS app to work, you have to be conscious and able to access and open the phone and interact with their app. My concern is that none of that works if I am laying unconscious on the floor. They explained the technical problems surrounding that type of function and that these issues may be addressed in the future. I am upping my rating to 3 stars since they have been so responsive. And I look forward to seeing in the future if they are able to provide a function that alerts if you are incapacitated.

Thank you for your detailed review, please can you contact us via info@mysosfamily.com and we can explain it in more detail as we only have 350 characters here, the SOS timer you set ahead of a risky situation eg. answered door to a stranger, having a bath, working alone under a car/ladder and if you don't get back to cancel it everyone is alerted

Update: The developers fixed the bug and its working well! I am impressed with how promt they were and how efficient they were at fixing the timer! This app has been a big help in keeping me connected with friends and family when in sketchy situations. I highly recommend this app to anyone in need of a safety net. So I really love the app but since the update the timer crashes and thats what i use the app for.

I'm very impressed with ease and efficiency of this app. There are so many situations where the various functions can offer peace of mind to user and their contacts. I especially like the timer function. Great FAQs and instructions. I highly recommend reading all info on the sos family website. Text, email, and phone alerts mean very thorough outbound alerting. I like that it works with Alexa too making it easy when not near my phone for me to request help.
