With thousands of people commuting in and out of San Francisco on a daily, sometimes walking home late at night can be inevitable. Walk Me Home is a personal safety app that tracks a user's journey home and instinctively alerts for help when needed. Using common technology already found in most smart phones, this app will be able to alert for help when it senses the user has not made it home in a set amount of time, is traveling in the wrong direction, or violent movement has been sensed. Depending on the emergency, alerts can vary between a simple alarm to deter attackers, a mass text sent out to predetermined receivers with the user's current location, or alert authorities.
Additionally, the community section will allow users to view their loved ones location to make sure that they have made it home safely. The news feed section will allow users to view commuter and safety news pertaining to their most frequent locations.
