About this app

Becon is the fully automated walking safety app that uses technology to look out for you on your everyday walking journeys.

So quick and simple-to-use, Becon is the only walking safety app that can detect when you are in danger or in need of assistance and will alert your emergency contacts automatically if necessary - no interaction with your device is required.

4 Safety Triggers monitor your device as you walk and if one is activated, a timed notification will automatically check in on you:

> STOPPED MOVING - If your device stops moving for too long.

> HIGH SPEED - If your device moves significantly faster than walking speed.

> OFF ROUTE - If your device travels off of your chosen route.

> DISCONNECTED - If Becon loses connection to your device for too long.

If you do not respond to the notification by the end of the timer, then your pre-selected emergency contacts are automatically alerted via SMS, with an SOS message containing your last recorded location and the reason for the alert.

Featured by Forbes, Evening Standard, Marie Claire & more, and labelled "the must-download app for late night travel by foot" by the Metro.

Becon is different to any other walking safety or emergency alert app because:

• AUTOMATED - you do not have to manually interact with your device to send alerts when in an unsafe moment or in need of assistance.

• PRIVATE - there is no need to share your live location with others or notify anyone when using Becon. Emergency contacts are only alerted if a Safety Trigger is activated and you do not respond to the timed notification checking in on you.

• HASSLE-FREE - Your emergency contacts do not need to download or sign-up to the app in order to receive SOS messages.
