Free safety-focused Android app for travel

WalkSafe by Chaperhome is a free Android travel and lifestyle app that promotes well-being for London commuters. It features an interactive map with real-time news updates to keep you mindful and several handy functions to ensure your safety.

Know your neighbourhood

WalkSafe is all about commuter safety, providing support to people walking on foot near areas with a lot of criminal activity. It sends notifications of muggings, sexual assault, and knife crime to your phone, encouraging you to stay alert throughout your trip.

The app draws data from the UK police reports, guaranteeing a high level of reliability. It displays the information about potentially dangerous areas on an interactive neighbourhood map to help you avoid trouble spots and come up with alternative routes.

While they can be somewhat unstable with poor connection, the maps generally run and update smoothly.

Safety features

Apart from helping you tailor your commute, WalkSafe includes several accessible functions to boost safety. Most notably:

  • TapSafe - Tap your phone screen at predetermined intervals to reassure your friends and family about your well-being.
  • HomeSafe - Designate a protector to get an update or alert about your (un)completed journey. If you don’t make it home, the app sends your exact location to the authorized person.
  • Check-in - Choose a time when you expect to arrive at a location, and WalkSafe sends a reminder to your protector to check up on you.

All these features sit across a straightforward and intuitive user interface that focuses on ease of use.

Safe and helpful

This free app is compatible with both Android and iOS devices, and it’s lightweight enough for even older smartphone models. There are no in-app purchases, and the widespread usage across the UK shows that the platform is legitimate.

While it’s not the only app of its kind—Hollie Guard and One Scream are other notable examples—this one is convenient if you often walk alone at night and want to reclaim control of your commute.

Hugely reassuring

Overall, the scope of features WalkSafe offers is massively helpful, ensuring safety throughout your journey. While it could use some performance and accuracy improvements, the instant communication with designated protectors and police reports in-app are parts of the concept for anybody to appreciate.
