Launched last week, the Guardians app comes in handy when you are out exploring new places, walking home alone, meeting someone you don't know for the first time, or taking a late-night cab. The Guardian app will allow you to choose people you trust as your Guardians, to allow them to see where you in case something happens.

From your Guardian app, you can choose when to share/stop sharing your location or set up permanent sharing with selected Guardians.

If you are just sharing your location for a particular trip, Guardian will work quietly in the background. In the event you don't feel safe or are facing an emergency situation, you will tap on the emergency button to alert your guardians about your location and situation.

In Emergency Mode, your Guardians will be notified and will be able to precisely follow your location, know when you've reached your location, or be able to send help.

In the future, the Emergency mode will also have the ability to share your location with volunteer Guardians who may be in the vicinity where you are seeking help. 

Also, accepting help from the community is your choice. Soon, Guardian users will be able to get help from local enforcement through the app when they are in danger.
