***A "one-stop-shop" for access to the closest and most appropriate emergency services in South Africa***
South Africa has a unique situation, with numerous emergency service providers, from both the public and private sector, offering emergency assistance in case of a medical, rescue, fire, police, security and roadside emergency.
mySOS Emergency offers you access to appropriate emergency assistance when:
(a) you don't know who to call
(b) you don't know where you are
(c) you want to notify your emergency contacts about your emergency and the exact location
(d) you want the emergency services to navigate directly to your location in an emergency
mySOS Find Near Me offers you access to contact details for doctors, hospitals, pharmacies, dentists, vets and police stations in South Africa.
mySOS Track Me can be used to track a timed journey when walking, hiking, cycling, running, or driving, anywhere in South Africa. mySOS checks your device's GPS location and automatically notifies emergency contacts when you don't arrive when the time countdown has completed.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
- To assist schools & other organisations during this time, users can now access rich functionality in Find Near Me without their location being enabled.
- New information available for emergency services providers.
- Automatic countdown is disabled by default for new users.

You are never alone, mySOS is here to support you through this challenging time. Thank you sincerely for all your requests & feedback.
Ratings and Reviews
I give the app 4 stars as I paid for a family for a year but I can only check in on the device I paid from which is with me, the problem is I work abroad so as soon as I leave the country my family cannot check in. I have tried checking in for them to send a screen shot as proof but the app won't allow me to because I'm not in ZA at the time. Is there any way the developer can change this limitation? Or allow more than one device to have proof of payment?
You need this
Have not had to use the app in an Emergency, but the functionality is great. Seemless
Doesn’t work at all for off grid emergencies
No signal - no SOS , it and other apps exactly the same should be advertised as such. They just don’t work in extreme environments. You basically have to be on 4g or in wifi for this to work. Which not realistic to half the countries coverage - twice it let me down & others .
