If you are a Canadian or US student or are part of a school using Guardly’s Safe Campus Program, Guardly will also connect you with campus security if you set off an emergency alert on campus. Be sure to check our list of supported schools and to register with your university-issued email address.

UPDATE: With the launch of Guardly’s IPS (indoor Positioning System), security dispatchers can now see your real-time indoor location when you are in an emergency. IPS is accurate to the room and floor of the emergency and significantly reduces average response times. Note: Guardly IPS is only available to Guardly users who’s organizations have subscribed to the service. No additional steps are required of you as a Guardly user in order for IPS to function. Contact your organization’s security or police department to see if this service is available to you.

Guardly is most effective when 5+ safety contacts are added to a group. Groups are often based on location or situation. For example, a university or college student may have a group setup to quickly reach friends on campus and another group to notify family when back at home.

Out of the box, Guardly comes packed with a free service that allows you to reach everyone in your safety groups by one-way emergency alerts, which include your location, group name and other information that can help them reach you.

Guardly’s premium service instantly connects you to a multi-party conference call, private and secure instant messaging session and real-time location tracking throughout the span of your call for help. This is a very powerful service and we recommend that you run a simulation within the app to better understand the benefits of the premium service and to inform your safety contacts about how Guardly works.

Guardly is ideal for students, young professionals, realtors, social workers, travelers, sports enthusiasts, or anyone who frequently walks alone at night, is concerned about dating safety, is responsible for children, may find themselves in abusive relationships or is faced with medical conditions. Guardly is also ideal for families and friends who agree to look out for one another in the event of disasters such as earthquakes, fires and floods.

Guardly has been featured in a number of publications including TechCrunch, GigaOM, Mashable, VentureBeat and The Huffington Post.

Contacts automatically get an email during set-up I have the Samsung S4 Mini. It installed fine and runs, but... I added contacts to my account while testing the app and they received an email from Guardly without my knowledge. Additionally, the email is addressed to the recipient as you have them listed as a contact, so be careful how you have a contact listed. Also, it looks like you have to pay for full functionality.
