The idea behind Citizen App is that we want to help build a better world for all people. We believe that everyone should be able to protect themselves from harm, whether they live in a city, suburb, countryside, or another part of the world. All citizens deserve protection from crime. Technology has made it easier than ever for us to offer our services and products to everyone who wants them at any place in the world.
Citizen App solves the problem that most of us don’t feel safe when we’re out at night. We carry our phones everywhere, giving us a false sense of security. But while smartphones have become indispensable tools in our lives, they also pose threats to our safety. Citizens provide an app that lets users track their location and gives them real-time alerts whenever they enter risky areas. Using GPS and cell tower triangulation, the app sends push notifications to the phone when it detects your position near high crime zones such as schools, hospitals, and public transportation hubs.
Users can choose how much information they want to receive, from basic locations to the nearest police station. With Citizen App’s unique approach to geofencing, the app allows users to know where exactly they need to be to stay safe. See this page for more information.
