Virtually Walk You Home

This is an awesome app it is called the Companion App! Great when you are out walking and want that extra security, whether it be on campuses, trails, on your street, anywhere! Just make sure when you are not using it you have it turned off so it is not draining your cell phone battery. To download it go to: Companion App

It allows users to invite friends to virtually walk home with them. The app sends a text with a map that tracks where you are, and where you’re going.

If Companion senses that you drop your phone or speed up, it sends an alert to ask if you’re okay. If you don’t respond within 15 seconds, an alarm will sound, and it will give you and the friend tracking you the option to call police.

And your friends don’t have to have it installed on their phones for them to be with you.

I hope you enjoyed this and be safe on your walks!
