Please note:

  • You can install Safezone on your iOS or Android tablet, however you will not be able to make or receive voice calls as tablets generally only have a data SIM. Therefore, you will not be able to utilise SafeZone’s full capabilities on a tablet, as having security call you is part of the standard response procedure.
  • SafeZone is privacy protected, so will never share your location unless you summon assistance or if you use the check-in function designed for those who work alone or out-of-hours.
