I only gave four stars just I have not had the need to activate emergencies services through SafeTrek yet but I have spoken with the people from SafeTrek and they assure me as long as I have cell service or wifi, I will be able to activate SafeTrek. I walk to my car from work across a parking lot from 12am to 2am depending on the night and knowing that I can hold that button down until I'm safely in my car is very comforting. If I ever needed help, I can just release the button and the police would be on their way! I think the 2.99 per month is MORE THAN REASONABLE for at least my one peace of mind and at most, emergency services when I need them, just with the release of the button. I don't know why more people don't use this app!
This is probably the smartest app I've ever bought in my life! I just went to a strangers home to look at a room for rent, and had this in my hand the whole time. I felt incredibly safe! Thank you so much!
So smart 5/5
I feel so much better about going in Uber's/ walking around at night. I also love that it sends a text when you're safe,
It works BUT... 1/5

WHY THE HECK DIDN'T YOU JUST SAY "OH YOU HAVE TO PAY MONTHLY" IN THE BEGINNING!? I AM SO ANGRY SO I DELETED IT! I bet I can find a better app that dose NOT make you pay MONTHLY!
Money In Exchange For Safety? 1/5
By Mariah W
It's astonishing that they feel it's appropriate to be profiting off of the safety of millions of lives. And even those of you who do happen to pay for this app, the money should at least be going towards a specific cause or charity. It would increase the comfortability level amongst those who are hesitant about purchasing this app because in exchange for our safety, we would at least be helping a community. But I guess I'll just stick to the ancient 911 calling.
Great idea 5/5
By Nicolette Gray
I love this app, I use it whenever I feel unsafe and I like how it tracks your location and you can text.
They alert you quickly and make sure you're safe until help arrives
Old lady 5/5
I'm along, often go for long walks through the woods. This app allows me to feel safe should I get hurt and unable to be located by my family. Thank you for this app. I still wonder if the local police department has the receiving end of this app. Hope I never have to test it.
People are cheap 5/5
I find it interesting that some people are complaining that it cost any money at all. Is a measly $36 per year, or $3 a month going to bankrupt someone that can afford to pay for a smart phone? Three. Dollars. Was it supposed to be free when they have to pay for continued development and support, not to mention the people that you are communicating with that text to you etc. If they're not doing their jobs for free where's the money going to come from? Stop being cheap y'all. Brilliant idea and affordable price!
Loved it in college 5/5
I'm so happy this app exists! I used it constantly while I was at university. Pepper spray in my right hand - this app on my phone in my left hand - felt way safer walking home after my night classes.
So far so good 5/5
Even when I accidentally butt dialed them they were super understanding and I feel so secure using this app. Thank you guys
This app is such amazing emergency alert technology. Living in a city like Dallas, it makes you feel secure!
Great app 5/5
I love this app yes hopefully you don't have to use this app but it just safe know it is there
Not a fan of the monthly fee, but I do understand. Sadly I can't have the app due to that. Love the idea of it though, was excited until I saw the monthly fee.:(
By Yissel manueles
Makes me feel safe.. I always use it whenever I take a cab or uber even when I take the train at night. Totally recommend it.
Love this app so much 5/5
A lot of people are upset with the price but it's completely worth it and such a small fee for your peace of mind. I was actually expecting it to cost a lot more. It really is worth it and the concept of the app and easy use of it is amazing. I'm a college student who is always walking by myself, now that I have this app I don't feel unsafe anymore. I really appreciate the thought that went into this app!
Simply the best 5/5
What happened to me yesterday and the protection I got second to none
As someone with severe PTSD, I am able to live somewhat normally knowing this will keep me safe
FINALLY, SAFETY!!! 5/5
By Dennis M. Ahern
This is a WONDERFUL self security system that has made me feel safer on many, many occasions. Just knowing that as soon as I let go of that button and if they cannot reach me, the police will be led by gps to my exact location!! What more could you ask for???
Accidentally didn't type in pin right, got a call right away and text messages. 5/5
Super efficient, love that there will be someone available if I ever need them.
My hit me. No on came 1/5
No one came
This is a awsome app never had trouble 5/5
By Nikki stepp
Please get this app
Should not be charged for this app 3/5
The concept of the app is amazing but safety should not come with a price even though the price is minimal
By Miral G.
I'll be honest when I saw the app I was so fascinated I had to get it! So I see the great reviews and I'm like ok this app is gonna be worth it! But as soon as I get it, I'm charged 12.99 a month... and I think to myself "But why would they force us to pay if they want to keep people safe?" And then I end up deleting in cause I don't have money, and I go to school in dangerous streets. The bad ratings are pretty much ignored and I think it's fine but I'm only saying my opinion.
I'm 17 and I am home alone a lot in not a great area so it makes me feel sooo much better with this app. I have had instances where I had to use the app because I heard something downstairs and I felt so much better having the app by me. I also walk to my car from my job through a dark ally at midnight almost everyday so I use it every time I walk through the ally.
Safety first 5/5
This app is perfect even if you aren't in danger. Just to know that you have a backup plan if anything goes wrong is a relief!
Wonderful App. Hope I never have to use it, but it's good to know I do.
Amazing concept 5/5
Good use of my money
Set up 2/5
I had a hard time setting it used
This is the best app to have to feel safe !!
Thank you 5/5
This app gives me the added layer of security that I need. I'm a woman who lives in the city, there are times I don't feel safe. But I press this button and release it when I'm safe, it feels like I have a security guard following me. I was curious when to see what happens if I don't put my code in. Safetrek was the first to text and then immediately call. They asked me numerous times if I felt safe and I reassured that I was. I've seen some reviews that people don't to pay for it, no price is worth my safety. Thanks for creating this!
Peace of Mind 5/5
It's an amazing thing to have on my phone. Anytime I feel uneasy (which is a lot due to anxiety) I just open this app. It's an instant relief when I am only 5 foot and can't fend anyone off well. The new features they're adding sound amazing and I honestly can not wait.
Charging people to feel safe? 1/5
Being charged every month shouldn't be part of a safety app. Making money off of people in possible danger? I keep 911 typed into my phone if I feel uneasy, it's just a tap away to call the a live person. If something were to ever happen having a person on the other end who can hear what's going on and see your location, gives you a better chance. If your yelling I'm being kidnapped, the app won't hear that. This is a great idea, but it's executed poorly.
Never felt safer 5/5
I have used this app for years now and I recommend it to everyone. I've never had to use it because I was in danger, however I did accidentally activate it and I can't tell you how great it was that they cared to call and check up and double check that I was okay. Always always always use this app.
Advertising this app on YouTube 1/5
What I don't understand is why is this Advertise on YouTube regarding a Uber/Lyft Driver. If your in a Uber or Lyft. You have all the information you need about that driver.
This app is nonsense.
How many little kids are going to use this to make franks. Also how long will it take for a officer to come to you.
Peace of Mind 5/5
My 25 year old daughter told me about this app and I decided for the very inexpensive monthly cost, it was worth trying. I love it! I've had it for close to two years. I feel much better when I have to leave work at night and walk out to my vehicle alone. I also LOVE how much better I feel, knowing my daughter uses it too - it's peace of mind for this Mom to know that her daughter has SafeTrek "walking with her" for her comings and goings. Thanks SafeTrek!
It's alright 1/5
I can see how many lives this app can save I just didn't know that saving my life came with price of $2.99 a month. You can't put a price on people lives, just plain rude and inhuman.
This app is a very good tool for when yu pay for an uber and yur not really comfortable in there because the driver seems really scetchy. I love this app
Safetrek renewed online from safetrekapp.com 5/5
When I renewed my subscription online. The renewal was complicated. I hit redeem prepaid subscription and my IPhone does not show my current subscription with Safe Trek. This is a critical issue that needs to be fixed. When I reinstalled SafeTrek the application charges me for one month. I think I deserve free service with SafeTrek for Three Years. Switched to Lifeline Response because of these issues. When will the online account or subscription maintenance will be added. There will be a fix in progress.
By Fangs hi
SafeTrek is awesome it keeps u safe
I'm 13 and I say this app should deserve a one star because when it comes to being safe, money should never get involved. Being safe and money are two separate things, and they should always stay separate.
Wow, I was skeptical at first, but this is a really great tool to have when I'm walking back to my dorm on campus at night. I love how they even send a text message saying they're glad I'm okay! Highly recommend!!!
I feel so safe 5/5
I often leave for work when it's still dark and sometimes come home when it's dark and it makes me feel so much safer living in a big city and walking into my apartment building alone!
Wonderful design and could potentially save lives. Everyone should have this app
Not Free 2/5
It's a fantastic idea! I would totally pay a $3 fee or even $10 or $20 if it was a one time fee.
I cancelled my account after only having this for a day and was still charged 1/5
First month free? Not.

It won't let me download it 1/5

It won't let me download it
I'm 12 and I was alone in my room.I heard a knock and I checked the window,I didn't know that man,and this was before I had the app,I was so scared......But when that happened the man went away,I saw this app on instagram and I saw the video and the reviews.......my cousin said she has that app and she told me this story....She said she was alone at her home,she saw a man walking towards her home,he knocked really hard on the door and he yelled "LET ME IN",she freaked out and she remembered she had this app,she opened it and holder down the blue shield,it turned red,she had to put her password but she didn't,the police got notified and came quickly cuz the police station was close,the man was arrested because he knocked down the door and came in and checking stuff and he had a gun,she said this app saved my life.
This is an awesome app...I'm going to share it with others
