At this moment it is not possible to have access to the Safe365 panic button from the lock screen. However, we have some recommendations on where you can place Safe365 on your device in order to access it as quickly as possible:
Once Safe365 is downloaded in your phone, drag it from the application panel to the initial screen. It is advisable to put it in your dock. If not, on the first page that opens when you unlock the phone. This way, in case of emergency, you won't waste your time looking for the application.
Our recommendation for you is to place Safe365 in the Dock of the iPhone, next to the applications that you use the most or the most important ones. If not, putting it on the first page of your applications is also a very good choice. Above all, we recommend you to know where it is located to, in case of emergency, access it as soon as possible.
Knowing the distance you have walked during the day is possible thanks to Safe365. This feature is very useful to control how much you, and your protegee, have walked throughout the day and see if you lead an active lifestyle or not. For Safe365 to show you this information you must connect the App with Google account.
To do this, tap 'Profile' , tap on the three dots at the top of the screen, tap 'Permissions' and finally tap 'distance' (android)/'Physical Activity' (iOS).
The distance traveled will appear on your profile card and your protectors.
Yes. At Safe365 we use Facebook Account Kit as a platform to validate profiles. Is not necessary to register or enter at the application trough Facebook, nor to have a Facebook profile.
What is the Facebook Account Kit?
The Facebook Account Kit is a security system created by Facebook which any developer can add to its application and it allows you to log into applications such as Safe365 via email or the user's mobile phone number. Once one of these two has been entered, the system sends a temporary code that must be used by the user to verify his identity. From then on, it will be possible to start using Safe365 without problems.
Does it work in my country?
The Facebook Account Kit supports more than 230 country codes and it's available in more than 40 languages: you can see a complete list here. They plan to add more countries in the future.
In the map where all your protegees appear, you can see a green circle that sorrounds them. The green circle indicates the area in which your protegee is located and the accuracy of the location. That is, the smaller the circle is, the more precise the location is. If, on the other hand, the circle is bigger, the quality of the signal is worse and Safe365 will give you an approximate mark of the area that your Protegee occupies.
The accuracy of the signal is obtained through the mobile device. The device uses your GPS and your internet connection to determine your location.
Although Safe365 features are designed for the elderly, it is open to any type of audience that can adapt the app's functionality to their needs.
For example, it can also serve as a GPS locator for children, in case families want to know their kids location when they return only from school.
