My Safetipin is a Personal Safety app that helps you make safer decisions about your mobility, based on the safety score of an area. Safetipin calculates the safety score of a place based on 9 parameters, and your contribution allows us to continuously update the data to reflect how people feel in a place. Do let us know how safe you feel by doing a safety audit or sharing your feeling.

Planning to go out for the evening? Check how safe a neighbourhood is, by tapping the place on the map. You will see the safety score for that area.
You can share your location with a friend or family member and they will get notifications if you enter an area with a low safety score, if you divert from your intended route or if you are stationary for extended periods of time.
You can find the safest route from one place to another, based on the safety score. Once you select the route you prefer, the control will be transferred to Google maps so that you can reach your destination safely.
You can view the cafes, shops, markets, hospitals etc., near you and find a comfortable place to wait in case you are in an unsafe area. This feature is great when waiting for a cab or for someone to come get you.
Changing your home? Visiting a new city? My Safetipin will help you make the safest choice.
If you are in a place with no safety score and are interested in using My SafetiPin, do let us know. We will get back to you when we have data about your city.
