Dear kids, walking home alone can be dangerous for you all over the world. If you need someone to watch your back as you are away from your parents, the ‘Companion’ app might be of some help.

It is a virtual safety app that lets your friends and family monitor your journey. All you have to do is add them to become your companion, and select your destination and mode of travel.

If you are feeling nervous about the journey, the app allows you to notify your loved ones or the local police department.

1: Plug in your destination and select your mode of transportation.

2: Add friends or family to be your Companion. They don’t even need the app installed to watch your back!

3: Read out to your Companions or your local police department with just a tap.

4: The app will automatically alert your companions for you if you are in trouble.
