You can use this to share your location with the Security team if it would help you to feel more comfortable, for example if you are working alone in a building. Set the timer and if they don’t hear from you by the time it runs out, they’ll check in to see if you’re ok.
The check-in function has a drop-down menu with a Notes section. You should include details of your location and your activity, as well as the details of who to contact in case of emergencies.
You can use the SafeZone app on the main University campus, the University sports facilities at Weetwood and Bodington.
These areas are geofenced which enables the app to connect to the Security team. If you use the app outside geofenced areas, you will still be able to call 999 in an emergency.
Whether or not you are in a geofenced area, the coordinates of your location will be displayed on your screen.
