About this app

We exist to make your world a safer place. The all-new WalkSafe+ app provides safety at your fingertips, giving you the tools to make informed decisions about your personal safety.

No one can predict where the next crime will be. However, we believe being informed and staying alert is the key to staying safer.

We use up-to-date, accurate, and verified police data, empowering you with street safety information. The app will help you choose the safest routes while walking, spot patterns in criminal behaviour, and stay safe.


- HomeSafe: Protect yourself and protect others with HomeSafe. Set a specific place and a specific time, and share your journey plan with loved ones. If you don't successfully complete your journey, your loved ones are notified. (This feature is non-location sharing).

- WalkSafe Journeys: Going somewhere? WalkSafe journeys differ from HomeSafe by allowing you to share your location with your trusted friends. Your location will update in real-time allowing your loved ones to keep you safe on your journey.

- SOS: Alert all of your trusted friends in the event of emergency. This will share your location immediately and let your trusted circle know you are in danger.

- Activity Map: Our map shows police and WalkSafe community reports of dangers such as knife crime, sexual assault & mugging​​. WalkSafe automatically alerts you when you walk near these dangers. Use this information to plan safer routes and post live updates in your local area. Be a part of the growing community to stay informed and safer.

- Trusted friend circle: Build a trusted circle of friends who can view your location and share their own journeys. No one outside of your trusted circle will be able to see your location, not strangers or big brother.

This app helps me to feel safe when walking alone. It's so helpful to be able share my location with my friends and see if there are any routes I should avoid in my area. The SOS function gives me peace of mind, knowing I can alert friends of my location if I need to!

Great update for a really helpful app. My wife feels much safer using WalkSafe whenever she's out and has it set up to alert me should anything unexpected happen which gives us both peace of mind.
