About

Currently, several apps focus on calling for help or alerting emergency contacts while incidents are occurring or after they have already occurred. Our Allies app focuses on making women less vulnerable to attack in the first place. Safety in numbers! Users can both act as Allies or request Allies when traveling alone. They can also map out routes based on proximity to Allies and/or history of low incident rates. Users join the Allies app by invitation only, and can be affiliated with a college/university or organization on the app. Users rate one another using a 5-star system.
