About this app

Why Guardians?

Exploring new places, walking home alone, meeting someone you don’t know, taking a late night cab ride - these are some things that can make us feel unsafe, especially for women. In 2021, we all have phones, and now that can be our line of defense.

By choosing trusted people as your Guardians, and allowing them to see where you are, you can have peace of mind, and protection in case anything goes wrong.


Features:

• Invite your friends & family to be your Guardians. Choose the people you trust to see your location when needed.
• Share your GPS location privately. Only your Guardians will be able to see where you are and check on your safety.
• Setup forever sharing. You can choose to share your location permanently to certain trusted people.
• Notify your Guardians immediately when you are feeling unsafe, using the I need help feature
• Battery life, network strength and phone status can also be shared. This can be vital information for your Guardians and your safety.

This app is an absolute bullcrap, I wouldn't recommend it to anyone, the only time it gets the location right is the initial request from the person who wants you to be their guardian, after that, it gets stuck on that location forever even when the person moves to a different location. Don't waste your time on this, it's an experience you would regret. The developers should fix this, unless their intention is just to profit from collecting people's data.

It's more than just conventional location sharing through navigation apps, as it: 1. Has 3 different buttons in widgets for SOS, Watch Me and Watch Contact, as opposed to one, giving more granular control. 2. Has an evolving volunteer network that's ready to help in case you feel unsafe and hit SOS. 3. Displays important information such as phone's battery percentage, ringing status, signal strength, speed, pin/unpin location & a direct calling & messaging button in an easy to read manner.

The app is good, and its integration with Google map is fantastic. But I would suggest you add satellite map type, where the pictures and colours of locations are clearly shown. I would have loved to suggest you remove the option of not sharing one's location with his/her guardians, because that's the essence of the app, but other users might not buy into it. Is it possible to use the app to track one's guardians' phone in case of theft or loss? Even if the phone has been flashed by the thief?

Hi Sola, Thank you so much for the detailed feedback. We are releasing a new version in sometime wherein you'll be able to turn on satellite view from Profile Settings. Regarding loss/theft of phone, our team is looking into it. If you have more feedback, please don't hesitate to write to us from support@getguardians.com. Stay safe.
