THE WANDERSAFE APPLICATION
More than just Maps…
The WanderSafe smartphone application is free to download and enjoy. The app gives you curated safety tips from JENI, your virtual safety companion and includes location-based warnings, geopolitical travel advice, and other important things you might need to know about where you are. JENI thrives on feedback, and will always ask you “Do you feel safe?” You can simply say ‘yep’, or chose the ‘nope’ and select any one of the situations that may be making you feel uneasy. Got more to say? Use the ‘chat’ bubble feature to share what you see, and any photos related to your comments. You’ll get rewarded Kudos for your feedback and your ‘Hero’ score will start to soar!
Media Love Us
There are more than 850 million women and vulnerable people traveling every year. There are more than 100,000 cases of human trafficking in the US alone. We couldn’t find an existing non-violent ecosystem (hardware and software combo) to empower people to live without fear, so we created it.
Who Needs a ‘beacon’?
The beacon is a perfect solution for a student, senior parent, remote worker, urban commuter, school age youth, and anyone who might feel vulnerable. The beacon is designed to keep everyone safe.
Who’s behind WanderSafe?
We’re a passionate team of safety experts (Thomas was in the CIA as a safety expert for more than 20 years!), technologists, global nomads, retired law enforcement officers, social impact investors and good citizens. Want to join our tribe? We’re hiring!
