SafeTrek Wants To Keep You Safe

“Gabby Hinojosa works in fundraising and spends late hours at her office near Washington University. At night, she walks to her car alone and uses SafeTrek, a personal safety app on her smartphone.

When she’s in areas she considers dangerous, Hinojosa holds down a blue button image on the app. After safely reaching her car, she releases the button, enters a personal identification number and goes on her way. If, for any reason, she failed to enter the PIN, SafeTrek would verify her status, and alert 911 if there’s any question about her safety. Authorities can locate her by using GPS coordinates on her smartphone.”
