Abstract

For children and teens who need to travel point to point, safely. The Guard Me app is a personal safety companion that assists in safe traveling by creating timed check-in points. The app uses registered accounts to privately send, messages and alerts that contain your geographical location to either guardians or friends in the circumstance that a check point was missed. It also is able to emit loud audible sirens at the user’s discretion. Unlike current safe travel apps (Bugle, BSafe, ect..) that are marketed toward women and hikers. This app is designed with parental controls in mind that will allow guardians to override the app with designated check-in times for their child. Providing a safer travel experience and added security for children and teens.
