!!! SafeZone app is only available at organizations using the SafeZone solution !!!
!!! You MUST use your organizational email (University or Work) in order to sign up !!!

SafeZone is a FREE app that connects you directly to your organization's response team when you need help.

When you are in any SafeZone area designated by your organization, you will be able to:
• Get help in an Emergency,
• Get help when you or someone near you needs First Aid,
• Contact the response team for Help in less urgent situations,
• Check-In to share your status with the response team when working alone, access safety tips and advice relevant to your location, and
• Receive Emergency Notifications and guidance during critical incidents.

The SafeZone service is specific to geographical areas that have been defined by your organization. You can find out what areas are covered by tapping the "Regions" menu item in the app. When you raise an Alert (Emergency, First Aid or Help), response team members will be alerted to your situation and location so that they can coordinate to help you quickly and effectively.

SafeZone will operate at any location, however if you press and Alert button when you are outside one of the defined areas, your app will tell you you're outside the SafeZone area and offer you a single-tap call to the local emergency services number.

Where your organization provides safety shuttle buses, you can also see the real-time bus locations inside SafeZone.

Fine but churns through battery

I left this on as required during covid lockdown to automatically check in, but it burns through battery power. Once my battery is less than 30% it automatically deactivated the app

Developer Response ,

Hi Rebelnorm. Unlike COVID tracing apps, SafeZone doesn't need to be running in the foreground. In fact, doing so will increase battery usage dramatically. Once SafeZone has been checked-in, put it into the background and lock your phone. You should see around 1-2% battery used per hour. If you are seeing more, let us know at


How does it work?

What if you study online and your UNI isn’t in your state but you usually study at a different UNI library or a campus? So how does it work?

Developer Response ,

Hi. It depends on the Uni. Some provide services for satellite campuses and areas off-campus, but for others, the app only works while you are on one of their own campuses. We could give you a more definitive answer if you email us at and let us know which Uni you attend.

Use student / work email!!

Make sure you use your student email to sign up- that's how it detects your campus. Otherwise it won't work. Cheers
