About this app

**Now over 1,000,000 Check-ins and featured by AARP and Forbes**

If you live alone and want the reassurance of someone checking in, Snug is for you. It's a daily check-in for people living alone.

If you don't check in by your selected daily time, a Snug dispatcher will call to check on you. If you still don't respond, your emergency contacts will be alerted and then emergency services will be called for a wellness check.

If you have a fall or an emergency, you can use Snug to call your personal dispatcher (on dispatch plan).

Snug is a way for independent seniors to feel peace of mind. Think of it like a modern Medical Alert or Life Alert that is designed to be friendly, positive, and proactive.

Snug is popular with people who have medical concerns including diabetics, heart disease, stroke history, or epilepsy. A lot of people use it in combination with medication or pill reminders.


Snug has a free plan where emergency contacts are alerted if someone doesn't check in at their regular time.

There is also a dispatch plan, either $9.99/month or $99/year, where a personal dispatcher will call if someone misses their check in. If necessary, the dispatcher will coordinate a wellness check to the last known location.

You can call your dispatcher for help any time of the day if you have an emergency.

this app had been great, and I even recommended it to my patients. however, after I needed to do a cold reset of my pixel 7 pro, trying to reinstall it kept hanging on the screen requesting location permission. I granted permission but it would only go back to the same screen asking me to do it again. and again. and again! I hope the developers can fix this. I'm using the latest version of Android as of 2 days ago.

I am really liking this simple app so far. My only complaint is that the check-in reminder notifications suck. The notification is considered "low priority" on my phone so it shows up at the bottom of my notifications list. I get 30-40 notifications an hour since I use my phone for work so if a notification is clear down at the bottom and the icon doesn't even show up on my notifications bar then I am way less likely to see it. I have remedied this by setting a daily reminder alarm for myself.

In my estimation Snug Safety is technology at its best! I'm senior living alone. Each day I get a silent reminder to "check-in". I just tap the notification, it takes me to the app and I tap "check-in". It's confirmed with a quote. if I miss a check-in, my emergency list is texted. Simple and effective! Many more features. I feel secure and family doesn't have to worry about me.
