** Automatic detection of suspicious road activity by your cab driver **
** Unique, Live-updating link with your location and route info **
** FREE SMS alerts of your journey to friends and family **
RideSafe ensures your safety while travelling in a cab, taxi or auto, by automatically detecting a deviation in your route to your destination. This is done via a new algorithm invented by a team of IIT and BITS-Pilani graduates. The algorithm monitors your ongoing cab ride in real-time for any suspicious on-road activity by the driver, and in case of detecting a deviation from route we inform your selected contacts. You only need to enter your destination, and don't need to take any fixed routes. We intelligently understand when your cab is talking an alternate route to say avoid traffic, or when the signal has been lost due to a say a tunnel, as compared to when your driver is trying to cause trouble.
In every trip, you can select a few contacts and we will send them a FREE SMS, with a trip view link. They don't need the app to view the link. On reaching your destination, automagically a second SMS will notify them of your arrival. No more daily missed calls to family on reaching office :)
Meeting a friend? Simply exchange your trip links via SMS/WhatsApp etc. No more calling each other 10 times to ask "Where are you?". Each trip is a new link, so no privacy concerns, and it stops tracking automatically as you arrive on your destination. It just doesn't show your current location, but your path. Your location is communicated to our secure servers over encrypted transport, and never shared with anyone, and used to ensure that you reach home safe!
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
Added an SOS feature. SOS can be activated even when the trip has not been started.
A widget has been added to give quick access to SOS and Start/End Trip.
Profile to change your emergency and default contacts.
Improved deviation logic for your safety.

Must have for those late night airport transfers
Works flawlessly, enter destination and it does the rest. Since Bengaluru airport is far from city, I used to use WhatsApp live location to periodically track my loved ones if the cab was taking a correct route. Once I used this, no need to check, I can sleep peacefully knowing the app will automatically check for deviations.
