5. StreetSafe


StreetSafe is a great app to have in an emergency. You can activate a silent alarm that alerts a monitoring center so police are immediately dispatched to your location. No phone call needed! Your physical description and any notable medical conditions such as diabetes or heart disease, are immediately transmitted to the 911 service.

If youโ€™re walking home in an unsafe area and find yourself nervous, trust your gut. You can at this point call a safety advisor through StreeSafe who will stay on the line with you until you reach your destination or you can choose to have them alert the police if you see something suspicious or need immediate help. What a brilliant app to have for all us ladies who I'm sure have found ourselves in these shoes plenty of times.
