Parachute is the most powerful safety app in the world. Battle-tested by those who face danger every day worldwide. Starting at US$2.99/year + free trial

Emergencies happen. It’s a fact of life. And even though you can’t control when they happen, you can control how prepared you are. When the time comes for help, you don’t want something that’s “good enough”. You want the best tool you can get. Meet Parachute

Parachute lets you broadcast your video, audio and location to your friends and loved ones in the event of an emergency

With just one touch, Parachute:
‣ Simultaneously calls, texts and emails your emergency contacts
‣ Sends them your live video, audio and location straight from the scene
‣ Records discreetly to protect your safety
‣ Prevents accidental touches from stopping the recording or blurring the focus
‣ Saves all your evidence away from your phone, so it is safe even if the phone is lost, taken, or destroyed

‣ Superlock: Prevents an unauthorized person who grabs your phone from stopping the recording
‣ Checkup: Checks up on you every 12 hours and alerts your emergency contacts if you don’t mark yourself safe
‣ Multi-Camera: Captures video from the front and back cameras simultaneously for 200 degrees of camera coverage
‣ Siri: Activate Parachute by saying a codeword to Siri
‣ Phone Alert: Pre-record an alert message that your emergency contacts will hear when Parachute calls them
‣ Emergency Notes: Set up emergency notes to be released in the event of an emergency

‣ Live Alert Status: See the live status of each alert sent out (texts sent, emails delivered, phone calls picked up)

What’s New

Version 4.46

‣ Parachute is now ready for iOS 16!

----- Recent Updates ( -----

Introducing Superlock

‣ Superlock locks down Parachute during an emergency, so an unauthorized person who grabs your phone will not be able to stop the recording
‣ Parachute is, once again, the first in the world to offer this advanced and powerful feature
‣ Superlock is for people who use Parachute in situations where there is risk of their phone being taken away from them by an attacker, police officer or other unauthorized person
‣ Superlock keeps your phone locked while continuing to record and live-stream your video, audio and location undisrupted
‣ Get the full details at

Parachute would like to acknowledge Daniel for their assistance with Superlock

Introducing Checkup

‣ Checkup is a powerful new Parachute add-on that checks up on you every 12 hours and alerts your friends and loved ones if you don’t mark yourself safe
‣ Your friends and loved ones receive life-saving information, like your last known location and your emergency notes
‣ With Checkup turned on, every time you launch Parachute it automatically marks you safe and saves a breadcrumb with your location
‣ Location breadcrumbs are a privacy-preserving way to keep a life-saving location trail that helps others retrace your steps, but, unlike apps designed to share your location 24x7, Parachute only shares this location trail if you miss your checkup
‣ Checkup keeps a rolling trail of your location breadcrumbs for the past 10 days, while deleting any older breadcrumbs
‣ Get the full details at

Introducing Multi-Camera Video: A World First for iOS

‣ Capture video from both the front and back cameras simultaneously with the Multi-Camera add-on
‣ The Multi-Camera add-on is open to all Parachute members running iOS 13.0 or newer on iPhone XR, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro
‣ Get the full details at

Introducing Parachute Micro at just US$2.99/year

We are always working to make Parachute more accessible to everyone around the world. We are excited to introduce our newest and most affordable membership ever, Parachute Micro Yearly, designed for light use. With Parachute Micro Yearly, you can activate Parachute up to 3 times a year, with up to 10 emergency alerts per incident

Ultra Wide Camera

‣ Parachute now uses the ultra wide camera on the new iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, so you can capture even more of the scene on video. This expands the camera’s field of view to 120 degrees, revealing parts of the scene that would have been off camera with the standard wide camera

Get Notified

‣ You now have the option to receive a push notification when your early access request is approved
‣ Just tap on the add-on you would like to request early access for and then choose to get a push notification when you have been approved
‣ We will be launching many new features in the coming months, so this is the best way to stay in the loop

Do you have a Parachute story to share? We would love to feature your story in our next video. Send us an email or video about it at and we will send you back a Parachute goodie bag!

Keep up the good work!

Thanks for being with me on all those runs when I was trying to become a better Cross-country runner out on those city trails. Cool that you kept the loyal day one’s on this update to 4.0 instead of booting them. I can keep going solo, even now I’m just doing runs for fun.

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much for your kind words!! And for being an early user of Parachute! Best wishes from New York!

I love it

For me this is something I need to have on my phone cause I go out alone all the time and as I am under 18 it worry’s me that what if I am ever in danger? This app helps me as a panic button to alert my family I need help. To have this so easy to access it is a great tool to keep you safe.

Beg For Hell ,

The setup is wonderful

I love the app so far, but I have an iPod, and I was wondering if I need wifi in order for my emergency contacts to get the message?

Developer Response ,

Hi there! In order to alert your emergency contacts, Parachute needs either cellular reception or WiFi. If your device has no cellular or WiFi for the entire duration of the incident, Parachute will still record everything (video, audio, location and more) but will not be able to alert your emergency contacts. Once you are back on cellular or WiFi, it will prompt you to upload the recorded data. If you activate Parachute and your device initially has no cellular or WiFi but later at some point before you end the incident your device connects to cellular or WiFi, your emergency contacts will be alerted at that time. Feel free to reach out to us any time at for any more questions you may have!
