When you need help from a friend or family member, you can rely on Wearsafe to provide them with all of the most important information about your situation – that includes your location and any audio that can be collected around you.

To ensure that this critical information can be provided to your trusted network when you need them:

  • Open your phone’s ‘Settings’ app
  • Scroll down to ‘App Manager’ and select it.
  • Scroll all the way down to select Wearsafe from your list of installed apps
  • Turn on ‘Show Notifications’
  • If you are running Android 6 Marshmallow or newer, make sure each of the following is turned on in ‘Permissions’:
    • ‘Location’
    • ‘Microphone’
  • If you are running Android 7 Nougat, make sure to give Wearsafe unrestricted data when Data Saver is enabled.

When a friend or loved-one needs your help and sends you an alert through Wearsafe, it’s important to set up your phone so you can easily be notified.

To ensure that you will be alerted:

  • Open your phone’s ‘Settings’ app
  • Scroll down to ‘App Manager’ and select it.
  • Scroll all the way down to select Wearsafe from your list of installed apps
  • Turn on ‘Show Notifications’
  • If you are running Android 6 “Marshmallow” or newer, make sure ‘Location’ is turned on in ‘Permissions’
  • If you are running Android 7 “Nougat”, make sure to give Wearsafe unrestricted data when Data Saver is enabled.
