About this app

Becon is the smart safety app that uses technology to privately protect your everyday journeys & activities, including walks, runs, cycles and more.

Quick, simple, and totally private to use, Becon detects when you need assistance automatically. The app will check in on you with a timed notification and only alerts your emergency contacts if no response is received from you by the end of the timer.

Becon doesn’t require you to physically interact with your device to send alerts when needed, so is effective in the case of accidents, assault/attacks, medical emergencies & unexpected events which leave you incapacitated, unconscious or separated from your device.

Tap to activate the app and Becon’s smart safety technology monitors your device until you get where you’re going safely, at which point it turns off automatically.

Becon monitors your journey or activity for unusual changes in the speed, motion, or location of your device, which could signal a potential safety issue:

STOPPED MOVING - If your device stops moving for an unusually long time.

HIGH SPEED - If your device starts moving much faster than expected.

OFF ROUTE - If your device deviates significantly from your intended route.

DISCONNECTED - If Becon loses connection to your device for an extended period.

If an unusual change is detected, then a timed notification will appear on your device checking you are ok. If you do not respond to the check in notification by the end of the timer, then your pre-selected emergency contacts are automatically alerted via SMS, with a message containing your 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 safety or emergency alert app because it is:

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 to receive alerts.

Walking journeys are protected with Becon’s free plan or you can upgrade to Becon+ to use the app to protect your runs, cycles and a range of other journey types and activities. Becon+ has fully personalisable safety settings and provides you with the option to share journeys with your emergency contacts, as well as live location tracking following an alert.
