Safety Apps

Here are some great apps that we at the Student Escape Corner recommend!

Circle of 6: This app was created to help prevent violence before it happens, on and off campus. It allows you to add 3 to 6 friends to your “circle” and whenever you are in a situation that makes you uncomfortable you can click to send them one of three text messages: a text with your current location; “call and pretend you need me, I need an interruption;” or “I need to talk.” Each sends a text directly to your preselected people alerting them that you need help. Free and easy to use and download, the app also provides you with local violence and emergency hotlines. The app is discreet and only uses icons so no one will know what you are doing. Download today on the Apple app store or Android.
