Red Alert App launches in Malaysia: A personal safety app that aims at placing personal safety in the palm of your hands

Locally based app development company, Webclixer Creatives Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of the Janson Group has launched a personal safety app called Red Alert which is designed to bring personal safety back into the hands of the people.

The app is easy to use and comes equipped with a number of features such as Black Box, an audio capturing feature, Geo location tracker and it also provides real time tracking through Google Maps.

An app for the people

Even with a reduction rate of 12.6% in crime rate last year compared to 2013, a large number of 19,299 street crime cases were still reported in 2014, which translates to an astounding 52 cases a day. Keep in mind that these numbers does not reflect unreported cases. A study by Frost & Sullivan also states that 90% of Malaysians felt that overall crime was either getting worse or was still as bad, with common anxiety over snatch theft and house break-ins, that may lead to fears of more violent crime such as abduction and rape.

Protection in the palm of your hands

Unlike the usual personal security apps in the market which only provides the common distress alert to friends and family, Red Alert also comes with a host of unique features. Geo locations, one of the more notable features notifies your registered friends and family of your GPS location every 50 metres and ‘Black Box’, an audio capturing feature captures your surrounding sounds immediately when the panic button is activated, which streams in nine second segments, up to a total of five minutes.

Here’s the list of features that you can find on the Red Alert app:

  • Panic Button activation through long screen tap or by pressing the power button 3 times
  • Sends out emergency notifications via SMS and Facebook instantly once panic button is activated
  • Sends out Geo Locations once panic button is activated
  • Movement can be traced every 50m through Geo Locations
  • Allows receiver to track you via GPS and Google Maps
  • Black box: Audio capturing feature activates the moment the panic button is triggered
  • Public can monitor SOS calls in real time via Google Map
  • Allows Calibration Test during Set Up

Red Alert is currently available for free on the Google Play Store.
