About this app

The most powerful safety app for today’s world. Download Citizen to feel safer at home or out, get real-time safety alerts and live video of incidents happening near you, updates on natural disasters or protests, and know if your loved ones are near a dangerous incident.

Citizen notifications have urged people to evacuate burning buildings, deterred school buses from nearby terrorist attacks and have even led to a rescue of a 1-year-old from a stolen car. Citizen may notify you of a crime in progress before the police have responded. It's meant to protect you and your community — please use it responsibly.

I think the app is great. it works as intended. However, I feel we should be able to read past incidents in our own neighborhood, or even the county, without being bombarded by "buy premium" advertisements. I'd understand if we're clicking on incidents from a different county or even a different city or state altogether, but I can't even click on ANYTHING without being asked to by another subscription service.

Good info badly displayed. When you post video to the app, it tells you to turn your phone sideways to get a landscape shot. That would be great if the people viewing the shot could ever see the whole thing. But viewers can only see a zoomed in square box in the middle of the shot. So we can't see much. And it's all pixelated due to the zoom. I prefer the old way it used to be where people just held their phones normal (portrait) and viewers could see the whole frame. Please bring that back!!

Trash. Inconsistent Alerts. I have premium version on Android & Free version on my iphone. Free version gives more relevant & frequent alert & more consistent. GPS is slow to update on paid version(droid). Not sure why that is. I should be getting better results off the paid version. As of now, I will not be renewing my subscription. For the price I'm not happy with it. Tech support is slow to respond. Have a ticket open for 3 mo. Still not update to my issues. Trash!!!
