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.

NEW! See friends on your Safety Map: Know their safety status in a glance and find out if (and when) they are near a dangerous incident in real-time. You can turn on Ghost Mode to keep your location private at any time.

The new UI is a big step backwards. There is now a prominent "Explore" section taking up the bottom of the screen which shows useless information from around the country. I don't need to know about road closures or fires 2000 miles away from me. It's just clutter and not only is it useless but it seems they are now showing less of what I actually use the app for, incidents in my own neighborhood.

It's good for what it is but a few complaints... 1 - I don't want to see what is "trending" 200+ miles away when I open the app... 2 - they changed it with the last major update, but I liked it better when I could minimize the list of incidents below the map, you can't anymore... 3 - my opinion, we should be able to rate the quality/content of videos people post and after so many negative rates, people should lose the privilege of posting videos. (I want to see the incident, not a face talking)

Can't look up streets on the search bar. For example. I have an adress "Vermont and Pico Los Angeles" you'll only get cities. When you click on a link sent by someone it only takes you to the "download app" section instead of opening up the actual accident. Also many times when you are looking for an specific accident you will not find it on a map no matter how close you zoom in. It will disappear. And randomly appear another day.
