Safety text

Four years after Lucie Blackman was murdered, her father has launched Safetytext, a service to alert friends and family where you are if you run into trouble.

Users send an SMS with plans and a time delay of between 30 minutes and 24 hours for an alarm to be triggered automatically to alert friends or family in the event that something happens.

The service stores photographs, contact details and the names of friends and relatives, which can be released to the police in the event of the customer disappearing.

As well as the delay service, the safetytext can also be used to trigger an instant alert by just texting ‘hi’ if things go wrong.
