After an incident of sexual assault, Charlen and her father developed bSafe, one of the most advanced and reliable personal safety apps in the world.
Exposed in 125 countries with millions of downloads and more than 100.000 articles in media such as ABC, CNN, NBC, BBC, Fox News, and Forbes.
"bSafe is a safety service that can easily be used by anyone. I see the potential for solving real issues for children and parents and anyone looking for solutions to increase their security. Everyone needs a service like this." - Jada Pinkett Smith
TOP-RATED PERSONAL SAFETY APP
bSafe prevents crimes like violence, sexual assaults, and rape as well as creates evidence in cases where it has already occurred.
bSafe gives you ground-breaking technology that prevents and documents violence and threats for your loved ones, employees, students, and your community.
Voice Activation, Live Streaming, Audio/Video Recording, Fake Call, and Follow Me in combination with location and tracking are some of the features that can help you stay safe.
THIS IS HOW BSAFE WORKS
Enable the SOS alarm by touch or voice even if your cell phone is placed inside your jacket, pocket, or purse. You do not need to press the SOS button to activate it.
Live Streaming: When the SOS is activated, your guardians will get your location and can track you. Guardians will be able to see and hear everything that is happening in real-time via live streaming and can track your location at the same time.
Automatic Recording: When the SOS alarm is activated, your phone will automatically start to record both audio and video. The recorded files will be sent to your guardian’s cell phone.
Get your phone to call you and get out of unpleasant or threatening situations.
Set up your own social and personal security network of friends and family (guardians). Invite as many as you want.
Ask your guardians to follow you home with Follow Me live GPS tracking. They will be able to see you live via the map on their mobile. Once you have made it home safely, your guardians will receive a message about it.

Ratings and Reviews
I know I don’t want the paid portion. The freebie has to be utilized and tested by me before I would consider that. However, this has access to EVERYTHING on my phone - the app bugs me over and over since I selected not to use the video/microphone. That cost one star right there. It also bugs me about adding “Guardians” - one is sufficient for now. That cost another star. Don’t bug me. Be intuitive to my needs, not the programmers’ desires, ok?
Developer Response ,
Thank You for Your feedback, it's very valuable for us. We are constantly improving the service and, yes, sometimes, we make mistakes and sorry if we were too pushy. We will do better ...
One note though: "the app bugs me over and over since I selected not to use the video/microphone" - it's not clear what You mean here. The app requests mic and camera access just once each. Please could You be more specific about how exactly app is "bugging" You regarding mic/camera so we can fix the annoying part? ...
Re: Guardians: First app shows help screen about what guardians are for, then suggests adding guardian just once. If You see multiple dialogs like that = please report, including approx texting. Again, thank You for Your support and for every star.
I'm honestly just leaving this review because I love the app, even though I haven't used it in a while. I also think it's funny that people are downloading a SAFETY app with audio/video recording and a feature to set your Guardians, who are supposed to be people the app contacts in the event you can't access your phone in time to notify them you're okay. Don't get an app that does that if you don't want to use those features??? It seems pointless to me. If you're just wanting the location services, use the ones on your phone I guess. Don't leave a bad or lowered review because you don't wanna use the functions it has and then not report any bugs or issues the app is having for them to fix. Seems pointless and petty to do that, to me. Anyway, I love the app and even though it's been so long I can only imagine it's gotten better since the last time I used it. Thank you to the bSafe team for doing what you can to keep the world a safer place!!

BeSAFE is A PAIN
Sorry. I do not like this application. None of the functions seem be as great as advertised. The largest drawback was the subscription charge. Many you guys are crossing over to subscription charge rather a OTC. There is NO product, not even yours product worth a subscription. I suspect many of people are dropping.
Application owners are loosing customers . I cancelled my subscription but having issues uninstalling and UN-registering. it is basically a spy (camera and microphone) and I have no idea if the camera and microphone continues when you are no longer tracking for the evening. The price is also suspect, after all nothing is free.
I also removed Bsafe from my wife’s phone and canceled her subscription charge. Why you did not start with a monthly subscription as default I have no clue.. Setting an annual as types default is just bad forum .
After reading what the developers had to say I believe application was not ready for released . Reasonably stable but feel the QA department dropped the ball.
You fully knew that if I changed our mind on an annually charge we cannot get our money back. Because of this, this makes you a thief.

Response on 25.04.2019: Thank You for updated answer. I want to stress this even more that it is in no way a spy app. No app on iOS can spy via mic because You will immediately see it by red status bar on top of Your screen when You push Home button. Re: Annual subscription: Why not cancelling it in the Apple Store Account?
New response: Thank You for updating Your review. We are working to improve the app, for example, in latest version we've fixed some legacy issues and crashes. Please help us by indicating what part of the app disappointed You?
Thank You for Your feedback. As for camera/mic security issues - iOS is very strict on it so no app can record anything without Your consent and knowledge. When app is recording mic while not on screen, You will see red status bar on top of Your iPhone screen. Camera does not work at all when the app that uses it is not on screen. These are system - wide measures, Apple is very accurate with privacy.
Sorry that bSafe disappointed You, we will improve the app further to stand up to Your standards!
