What do you do when you're meeting someone new in an unfamiliar area?
Do you ever get worried about buying or selling things privately through services such as Facebook or Gumtree, and want some extra security?
We all could do with a little more confidence in moments like these.
You can use Check on Me at any time for that extra security, or if you feel uncomfortable in any situation. It's great for first dates, buying or selling items to strangers online, or attending meetings alone with people you don't know.
Just choose a time for us to touch base, at any time of day or night.
How to Check in:
1. Tap 'Check on me' from the home screen
2. Select the length of time you think you'll need, or the time at which you want us to check on you.
3. Let us know any additional details about the person you're meeting or where - this is optional.
4. When the time is up, we will check in and ask you to confirm you're okay. If you need more time, you can use the "snooze" button to extend the session.
If we don't get a response from you at the agreed time, we will do everything we can to get in touch to confirm you're safe and well. If you don't answer, we'll send a member of our team to your last known location. We do this so that we know you're safe and well - it's what we're here for.
