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.

There's been so many changes to the app design that, so many things that were important and of use on the app are no longer available. Updates on what's going on in your area has changed drastically. Your area looks "safe" on the map yet, the gunshot/fireworks detectors never show up in the areas that gunshots happen. Adding family before, you can see their location and message them. No use in adding anymore. Don't waste money on a app that's now broken. Most reviews are old and not up to date.

As a service, it's wonderful and the mission and purpose is amazing. As an app, it's unusable to me because it doesn't have light mode, only dark mode, and that hurts my eyes and makes it barely visible out in the sunlight. I don't see many apps do this, usually they have both light and dark depending on user preference. Either way, good service but I'd never be able to use it unless theming options become available. Hope to see this app around in the future! Great idea.

It's a great idea for an app, but I just installed it yesterday and I'm already being bombarded with notifications with no options to narrow or change what I'm seeing. If I could only see notifications for things happening in a mile or 2 radius, that would be great! I don't need notifications for things happening 10 miles away
