Why Wearsafe?

Speed of use, sharing of critical information like live audio, and the ability to coordinate in order to send the best response, sets Wearsafe apart from any other personal safety system.

At Wearsafe, our goal is to make the world a safer place.

 Sure it’s a lofty goal, but we’re making it happen by redefining the way you call for help when you need your friends and family the most. Wearsafe is the smartest, most effective personal safety technology in the world, and it will allow you — and the people you care about — to live more confidently every day.

We did our Research

Changing the world doesn’t happen alone. By continually collaborating with top security experts, users, students, designers, and engineers, we created a personal safety solution that fits the way we live today.

Rich Staropoli, retired Secret Service Agent, talks about why Wearsafe is a breakthrough in personal safety:

Developed with Safety Experts

Our team of top safety experts regularly share the latest insights into distress responses so we could create a system built on information proven to save lives and prevent dangerous incidents.

Thinking Beyond GPS

Other personal safety solutions only send your location, but that’s not enough. When you need help, sending your friends and family just your GPS coordinates can do more harm than good. Wearsafe provides contextual information like live audio and a group chat which gives your responders the ability to coordinate quickly based on an understanding of the whole situation.

Privacy Matters

We know privacy is important to you, and it’s important to us too. Wearsafe doesn’t track you — until the moment you ask it to. Only when you press your Tag does it send your location information. Plus, unlike app-only products, the discreet touch of a button allows you to send an alert without anyone around you knowing you’ve asked for help. You’re in control of your rescue response.

Better than just a Cell Phone or App

The Tag has a range of up to 200 feet — so you don’t have to pull out your phone to call for help. During an emergency, the last thing you want to do is fumble through your phone’s password, dial an emergency number, and try to tell an emergency service where you are and what kind of help you need. With wearsafe, you’re in control even if your phone is across the room or in the backseat of your car. Wearsafe allows you to instantly get your signal to your selected network.

Input from Users

We work closely with students, parents, fitness enthusiasts, travelers (and so many more!) to make sure Wearsafe is a product that makes sense in your daily life. We included only essential features, which get you help quickly, and left out anything unnecessary. Personal safety, perfectly simple.

Obsessively Engineered

Our world class team of engineers, product innovators, and wearable fashion designers made the Tag comfortable to wear, easy to use, and engineered to reduce false alerts. The Tag looks cool, can be worn in many ways, and above all, is simple to press in an emergency.

We Never Stop Testing…

Wearsafe has to work when you need it, so we make sure it does. We continually test our products because we know that you rely on Wearsafe to keep you safer, everyday.

More than just Focus Groups

In addition to plenty of helpful focus groups, we went through three highly selective University accelerator programs, conducted extensive beta tests with actual users, and made sure to get Wearsafe into the hands of over a thousand users before going to market.

Dedicated Team of Developers and Support

We test our products regularly and update our software to make sure it’s running smoothly. Our team of dedicated developers and support staff are always working to keep Wearsafe at the forefront of personal safety products. We’re here to support you — and your support network.

Always Innovating

Our focus is the future. We believe that innovation is key to keeping you as safe as possible, so we’re constantly updating our technology. We know the world changes fast, so we’re just as responsive as our product.
