- What is KATANA Safety?

KATANA Safety empowers you to manage any situation with clarity and confidence. When danger or worry strikes, you know exactly what to do and who will respond. The feeling of uncertainty or isolation is eliminated and replaced with confidence.

KATANA Safety offers our users an advantage in times of need: a dedicated way of communicating with people who will provide calculated, immediate help for the situation at hand.

Whether you are traveling for business, going for a run, at home, or walking back from class, we’ve created technology that is always with you. It connects you to real people to help navigate vulnerable situations before, during, and after they might occur.

- How does KATANA Safety Work?

The KATANA Safety app is just one part of the KATANA Safety platform.
The app is where you create your Circle. Your Circle is a trusted group of up to seven people. As part of your KATANA alert, a notification is sent to your Circle along with your location via SMS. The message and conference call for your Circle help coordinate help if you are ever in a vulnerable situation, whether it’s life-threatening or just uncomfortable and everything in between.

The app also pairs to the KATANA Arc. The KATANA Arc is a slim, quick-trigger device that attaches to the back of your smartphone. This patented device bypasses your phone’s lock screen to send silent alerts or a start a loud panic alarm. You can also send alerts via the app. Sending alerts is simple with our quick trigger. Our goal is to empower our users to trust their instincts and stop bad things before they start and feel safe wherever they are.

For subscribers, sending an alert notifies the KATANA 24-7 Safety Response Center. In the event of an alert, our agent contacts you, already knowing your location, and stays on the phone with you until you feel safe. Our highly trained agents can handle any situation. Agents can dispatch local emergency services on your behalf, wherever you are in the US. Agents can also send messages to your trusted Circle, telling them where you are, and you may need help.

- Testimonials

“My office is in a sketchy neighborhood, and I am always nervous about walking to my car at night. I used to call my best friend and keep her on the phone until I got to my car. Now, KATANA makes me feel safe because I know I have my best friend and professional support on standby.” Nikki O.

“I bought this for my daughter on the day she graduated high school. I feel much better knowing she’s bringing it to college with her.” Jim C.

“I was on a date with someone I met online, and it got uncomfortable. I pressed the silent alarm button without my date noticing. Three seconds later, my phone rang, which gave me an excuse to step away for a minute. A few minutes later, my roommate picked me up. I’m so glad I had KATANA in that situation.” Zoe M.

“I was running on campus when a guy jumped out at me. I was wearing the wristband, and the alarm went off. He ran away. Thank goodness!” Joanna T.
