TACTICS ON – The Ultimate Personal Safety & Protection App developed by International Security Specialists.

Originally designed as a tool for VIPs at risk to threats of kidnap, targeted attacks and operating in Hostile Environments, this unique app is now applicable to everyone.

TO (Tactics On) provides not only tips and advice for your general safety and step-by-step ‘Tactics’ to take in the event of potential threats but also a variety of means to alert and communicate with your friends and colleagues.

– Tips and Advice to keeping you safe, day-to-day.

– Just got home? Arrived at your appointment? Landed at your destination?

SMS/Email your family, friends, work colleagues to let them know you’ve arrived safely at your destination with a URL showing your precise location on the map.

– Activate your personal tracker to send your family, friends and work colleagues an Email/SMS that can allow them to 'shadow' you till you’re safe.

Clicking on the link in the Email/SMS will send them to our map so they can see your movements till you 'Deactivate' the tracker.

Note: This function is for temporary tracking use. Continuous use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease your battery life.

Such a useful app!!

As a ski instructor I have insisted that all my colleagues have Tactics ON so we can track each other on our whereabouts over the mountains. We all now have peace of mind that everyone is safe and on track. Such an easy app to use and definitely worth the £2.99!!

Screen size not configured

Really want to use this app, but I have the iPhone 12 Mini and the screen size isn’t configured right, so I can’t change the settings or use the back button. Please fix!

Needs better setup information and interface

The principle of the app is great, the safety advice is very good but there is limited information on how to set up numbers and email addresses manually ( a lot of trial and error before I worked it out) the web site doesn't have any information on there either.
I'd prefer a list view of numbers and email addresses .. Even if each alert type had its own tab / page. I feel the developers have tried to cram the setup all in in one page and it's not intuitive
