Downloading Wearsafe

Downloading the Wearsafe App

On your phone, open the App Store or Play Store and search for “Wearsafe”.

Once you’ve downloaded the app and installation finishes, you can set up your account.

Setting Up Your Wearsafe App

Launch the Wearsafe App.

Tap “Sign Up” to begin.

2A

Creating An Account for Yourself

When you first start using Wearsafe, you will be asked to create an account and add important information to it. If you wish to create an account for someone else, such as a family member, continue to Step 2B.

Tap “Me” to create an account for yourself. If you want to create an account for someone else, continue to Step 2B of this guide.

Create your profile by entering the information requested and agree to the Terms of Service, then tap “Sign Up”. (Adding a photo is optional.)

You will receive a 4-digit confirmation code via text. Enter the code on this screen, then tap Done. If you did not receive a code, tap on “Resend Code” or update your mobile number.

This is an image of the activation card that was included in your Wearsafe Tag box. Use this code in the next step.

Input the activation code when prompted. The code should be 12 digits long and a mixture of numbers and letters.

Tap “Got It” and then “Allow” when the app requests each permission. These are all required for your app to function properly.

2B

Creating An Account for Someone Else

With Wearsafe, you can create an Admin Account in order to set up a User Account for someone else, such as a family member. To instead set up a User Account for yourself, go to Step 2A of this guide.

Tap “Someone else” if you do not plan to send alerts but are planning to create and manage other User Accounts. If you want to create a User Account for yourself, go to Step 2A of this guide.

Tap “Ok” to create an Admin Account, which allows you to manage the account of someone else but not send alerts yourself.

Enter the information requested and agree to the Terms of Service, then tap “Sign Up”. (Adding a photo is optional.)

You will receive a 4-digit confirmation code via text. Enter the code on this screen, then tap Done. If you did not receive a code, tap on “Resend Code” or update your mobile number.

Tap “Got It” and then “Allow” when the app requests each permission. These are all required for your app to function properly.

When your Admin Account is fully set up you will be taken to the Admin home screen of the app.

Adding Users

Once you create either a User Account or an Admin Only Account for yourself, you can add other users to your account so you can set up accounts for them or manage their accounts.

Click the “Add User” Button at the bottom right corner of the screen.

Create a profile for the new user by entering the information requested. (Adding a photo is optional.) Select whether you are setting up the new users account on your phone or on the phone from which the new user will send alerts.

If you are creating the new user’s account on your phone, the new user will be sent a text message with a link that will open the app on their phone already logged into their account.

If you are creating the new user’s account on the phone they will use to send alerts, the app will close and reset so that the new user’s account is open on the phone. You will be sent a text message with a link that will open the app on your phone already logged in to your account.

A 4-digit confirmation code will be sent to the new user’s phone via text. Enter the code on this screen, then tap “Done”. If you did not receive a code, tap on “Resend Code” or update your mobile number.

Input the activation code when prompted. The code should be 12 digits long and a mixture of numbers and letters.

Pairing Your Smartwatch

With a smartwatch, you can send alerts from your watch face using the Wearsafe complications. Follow these instructions to download the Wearsafe App to your watch and set it up to send alerts.

To use your Apple Watch with Wearsafe, you must enable the Wearsafe watchOS App using the Watch app on your iPhone. If you do not have the Watch app installed yet on your iPhone, open the App Store and search for “Watch”. Then, install the app.

Next, make sure the Wearsafe App is installed on your iPhone. Visit the App Store and search for “Wearsafe Personal Safety”, then install the App.

Once both apps are installed, open the Watch app on your iPhone and navigate to the “My Watch” tab at the bottom and scroll down to the Wearsafe app.

Open the settings for Wearsafe and enable the switch which says, “Show App on Apple Watch”.

Your watch should now be paired with Wearsafe! To confirm, visit the “Devices” page from the main menu of the Wearsafe app. Your watch should be listed with your other devices.

Firmly press the watch face display on your Apple Watch to open the customization menu.

Swipe left or right to choose a face, then tap the “Customize” button.

Tap the complication you want to change to Wearsafe, then turn the Digital Crown to find the Wearsafe app.

To save your changes, press the Digital Crown and tap the watch face to set it. Now you have Wearsafe on your watch face.

Inviting Contacts

You can add as many Alert Contacts as you want. You can also choose which types of alerts they will receive, whether they are Check-ins, Red Alerts, or both.

Tap “Add Contact”.

If you are adding an Alert Contact who is already in your phone, tap “Add from Contacts”. If not, tap “Create New”.

Choose your desired Contact from your address book. If you are adding brand new Contact, skip this step.

Fill in all of the information and choose whether this person is to receive only Check-ins, only Red Alerts, or both.

Wearsafe will send a request to receive alerts from you to your new Contact. Until they accept it, their icon will say “pending”.

When your Contact agrees to receive alerts, “pending” will disappear from their icon. Repeat this process for everyone you wish to be an Alert Contact.

Sending Alerts
With the Wearsafe App

You are able to send a “Check-in” or a “Red Alert” from the main menu of the Wearsafe App. Tap the Menu button and then tap “Home”.

To Send a Check-in
Tap the “Check-in” button on the home screen. A Check-in will be sent immediately. You will see the confirmation on the home screen that the Check-in was sent and receive a push notification.

To Send a Red Alert
Slide the “Red Alert” button on the home screen to the right. A Red Alert will be started immediately. The alert slider will turn red and you will receive a push notification to confirm the Red Alert was activated.

With the Voice Activation

The Wearsafe App integrates with Siri and Google Assistant to allow you to send Check-ins and Red Alerts with voice commands. Be aware that voice commands only work for the owner of the phone. The voice commands are the same for iPhone and Android.

To send a Check-in, say:​
“Hey Siri/Google, call Check-in Contacts using Wearsafe.”​

To send a Red Alert, say:​
“Hey Siri/Google, call Alert Contacts using Wearsafe.”​

Siri/Google will tell you when the alert has been sent.​

You can confirm Siri or Google Assistant is set up by visiting the “Devices” screen from the Main Menu of the Wearsafe App. Voice activation should be toggled as green.

If the toggle is not colored, go to Step 5A to set up Siri or Step 5B to set up Google Assistant.

With a Smartwatch

If you own a smartwatch using Wear OS or an Apple Watch, you can use your watch to send Check-ins and Red Alerts, either by opening the Wearsafe App on your watch or using the Wearsafe complications on your watch face.

After opening the Wearsafe App on your watch, tap the “Check-in” or “Red Alert” button to initiate the alert.

If you opened a Red Alert, a countdown timer will begin. If you opened a Check-in, it will be sent instantly.

After the Red Alert timer finishes, your Red Alert will be sent. Check-ins have a similar screen telling you it is being sent.

The App will notify you when your Red Alert or Check-in is sent. If you opened a Red Alert, you will need to use your phone to close it once you are safe.
