Bots / Misinformation 4/5
By Come onnnnnnnnnnnnnn
Loved this app for months but I’m getting concerned that it’s been compromised by bots or malicious actors spreading misinformation. Citizen needs to dedicate resources to fighting this influx.
5 Stars!! 5/5
The DM helped me save my relationship!! #ChicagoLoveStory🤟🏼
biased reporting 1/5
Referring to peaceful demonstrations as “incident” with red exclamation points and “unrest” is simply creating more bias and negativity. I was in these neighborhoods for two alerts specifically and they are people walking and chanting. Why are you contributing to the bias? You’re leading people to conclude that these protests are wrong when they are just people walking and exercising their rights.
This is biased reporting that reinforces racial injustice
This app is life changing
Great app but not entirely accurate 3/5
A lot of incidents are missing from my area. I listen to the police scanner regularly and half of the things they respond to are not on this map (major things, like fires and robberies of stores, assaults)
I really hope they find a way to catch most of the crimes that happen because the idea behind this app is great!
Will change to five stars once this becomes a bit more accurate than it is right now.
Best App Ever! 5/5
I love this app, keeps me update with whatever’s going in my neighborhood.
By 2 good ears
This is the best app that I have ever used and I thank all of you that have worked on this great app to make it what it is today please keep up the great work that you do.
We need to choose notifications 3/5
Like the app, however, it’s about to become less effective for me because I need to turn off notifications. I like getting notifications of events. I DO NOT LIKE GETTING NOTIFICATIONS OF WHICH FRIENDS HAVE JOIN THE APP!! All day, everyday, alerts come fast and furious from my contacts. This NOT why I joined the app or this service. FIX IT AND GIVE US THE OPTION TO TURN THAT OFF!
Worse than useless 1/5
1) several times I saw “incident reports” that were obviously fabricated...as in, I could verify that there was nothing going on at the location at the time of a report;
2) a few incidents I knew about (witnessed and/or had called 911) never showed up on the app;
3) almost always the videos are worthless (to the extent that it appeared people were going out of their way to make ridiculously bad videos...shaking, moving around, showing nothing, etc)
4) comment sections are equally worthless, full of amateur comedians and people obviously pushing various agendas
5) this app wants way too much attention, and gives back way too much useless crap in return
6) goodbye to bad rubbish. A worthwhile idea rendered worse than useless by inept execution.
Okay: needs some precise location improvements 1/5
The app is alright except when it produces false or misleading information. For example, often times it will produce address numbers that aren’t real and or that have a couple digits added to them. The app also produces false information like Zoo break-ins! It correct the information, but, often times, it’s too late! There is no such address that is 913600 N LaSalle Street in Chicago, certainly not one that’s a couple miles west of the Lake Michigan.
This application has helped me and alerted me and my family and friends in what’s happening outside of our area and within my neighborhood I really recommend it
By gray b31🏀
a little confused on why it’s not available everywhere. i want to stay safe in my own neighborhood but the app isn’t available in there. please make updates.
Need too much private information to sign in 1/5
Collect too much information to sign in
In Times Like These 4/5
It would be amazing if there was a Citizen app for Apple TV. In times like these, it would be amazing to have a screen up, showing activity around us. It would also be helpful to set it to show what is happening near my parent's homes.
This is an awesome app for telling you safety 5/5
I know that this is an awesome app for telling you how safe the places were and this is the best app to search what is happening everywhere around USA!
There are events occurring in my neighbourhood for past 10 minutes, where’s the alert 1/5

Provides Incorrect Information 1/5
By Tucker Olson
The app is stating there is a curfew in place for the city of Indianapolis effective 8:00 PM 06/03/2020. The mayor has of Indianapolis has not and never has issued a Wednesday night curfew.
Great site 5/5
Thanks for keeping us informed in real time.
Appreciate the developers of this site
Too much 2/5
This app wants to be the next FB. Now we get alerts for anything ... it’s becoming really annoying. Stick to crime please. We don’t need another social network.
Pushy about settings and asks for too much data 1/5
By Crysta Claire
I didn’t even get into an account. You have to provide a phone number to start an account, which is unacceptable. But I kept the app on my phone to think about because there is a lot going on right now and it could be helpful and I might have grudgingly given up the data. But then every time I unlocked my phone I got a notification saying they wanted access to my location. I didn’t even have an account it was harassing me for yet more personal data. Deleted the whole app.
Great app 5/5
Long Beach, CA 1/5
By <3 strong
There's nothing for Long Beach?
A Necessity 5/5
Knowing what’s going on is necessary to preserving sanity. Thank you!
Peace of Mind with this App.👍🏼🤙🏻🧘♀️ 5/5
By Norma Jean7
This gives me an update and a peace of mind to know and have up dates with this crazy city.🤙🏻👍🏼💪🏼✅
Brand new 4/5
By The accessor
About 15 minutes of use. Extremely promising and looking forward to This tool to my repertoire
They will block you if you say something they don’t like even if it’s not racist, sexist or violent.
This app is awesome. It notifies activity within minutes. My roommate and I just walked to go get food and 6 cop cars drove past us. Shortly after I looked at my phone and notice there were shots fired and a few blocks from us.
Is there any way this app would work on an android phone? If not does anyone know a similar app that would?
Executive Vice President 5/5
Great source of information !
Revolutionary 😘 5/5
During the revolutionary time of 2020, it’s important to know which buildings near your apartment are burning down. This has been helpful and gives me a lot of peace of mind so I can sleep
It’s the best 5/5
I like it and it helps me with news in a shorter way😎
Won’t accept my submission 1/5
There’s a homeless man screaming at 4 AM for an hour straight but it won’t accept my submission because it doesn’t think it’s newsworthy. I can’t even add a title or description to what I submit. The most I can do is record a video that’s a few seconds long. The UI is confusing and it seems like it’s a tiktok for vigilantes than anything useful.
Great but... landscape on iPad? 4/5
Okay, great information and all that, but why the hell doesn’t the app adjust to landscape on an iPad?
Seriously, a lot of people have keyboard cases for them. Fix this.
Not worth it 1/5
I deleted the app about halfway threw the setup. It wants to much personal information for me
The owners aren’t selling my phone number and email to junk lists
One-sided agenda 1/5
Beginning to think this app removes flagged posts that go against their agenda. Users whose far left posts get re-added, but right, those get pulled permanently if flagged. Seeing a lot of users getting annoyed that their posts are removed but far left get put back up.
Isn’t covered in my area 1/5
Only does inner cities..
The contact tracing prompt is really annoying 1/5
It doesn’t let you leave it disabled keeps prompting me to turn it on. Terrible design.
App doesn’t work 1/5
By Mike law 123
Data privacy and Covid tracking keep popping up!
Pop ups 3/5
By prof. nas
Why does the screen of the vivid-19 and privacy page keep popping up. It’s getting annoying, I have to do close them every 2 minutes.
App is Unusable 1/5
I downloaded the app and after signing up, I keep getting the Data Privacy pop-up and it won’t go away even if I click to review policy and continue. I don’t know where I can report this bug to since I can’t even use the app.
Very buggy but works “good enough” 4/5
It’s super buggy. Pop ups on covid that will not stop popping up, friend requests that disappear and reappear over and over and won’t let you action them. BUT - it’s “good enough” ! Hopefully they get on it and fix. Low hanging fruit fixes!
Data privacy keeps popping up making the app unusable 3/5
Please fix ASAP. Thanks!
Needs a fix. Keeps prompting privacy and covid19 2/5
Privacy and covid19 keeps popping up. Can’t even use the app
Fix the cover-19 splash screen bug 3/5
The covid-19 splash screen keeps coming up. I tried to close it and it pops up again. I then signed up for contact tracing and still kept popping up. Can’t use the app until it’s fixed
Non-starter that requires always on location 1/5
Needs location to function? This is unacceptable.
Web site 5/5
A Great sight to tell us what is really going on out there!
Only cities ? 2/5
Why is it that only inner cities are reported but not suburbs ?
Can’t use without giving phone number & location 1/5
Wake up people. You’re being monitored.
If an app can’t give you an anonymous option, they’re not in it for the right reasons. This is a hardcore security violation. Protest or don’t say you weren’t warned.
