Vice President Joe Biden says, “Thanks to the creativity and vision of these developers, young people now have a new line of defense against violence in their lives.”
With Circle of 6 you have a new way to connect with your most trusted friends- to stay close, stay safe and prevent violence before it happens! It's the mobile way to look out for your friends - on campus or when you're out for the night.
Circle of 6 lets you choose six trusted friends to add to your circle. If you get into an uncomfortable or risky situation, use Circle of 6 to automatically send your circle a pre-programmed SMS alert message, with your exact location. It’s quick. It’s discreet. Two taps on your iPhone is all it takes.
Here’s how it works:
• You're out late and you lose track of your friends. Use Circle of 6 to send your circle a “come and get me” message- with a map using GPS to show your precise location.
• You're on a date that starts to get uncomfortable. You need a polite way to excuse yourself. Use Circle of 6 to alert your circle to call you and interrupt the situation.
• You're seeing someone new, but you have some doubts about how things are going. Use Circle of 6 to access a wealth of online information about healthy relationships.
• In critical situations, use Circle of 6 to call two pre-programmed national hotlines or a local emergency number of your choice.

    I would love to be able to customize the outgoing text messages to better suit my needs. I work in the city and have this on my phone in case something goes wrong while out on my lunch or going to and from my car. It needs updated to make this possible.

    My Note 4 (through Verizon ) Offers a similar option to what You spoke of, where you can choose to send an emergency message with your Location and even turns the camera to broadcast when the power button is pressed repeatedly, 3or 4 times. I think it would be great to see this type of feature implemented into the OS of all phones and not just new and/or expensive ones.

    While this app is a good idea, it hasn't been updated since December 2013, despite the incredible amount of flaws it has. Clearly it's a half-brained port from iPhones to Androids. Flaws include: 1. Selecting contacts is unwieldy, it let's you choose from all files, but doesn't accept anything but contacts. 2. The buttons on my phone are exceedingly small and hard to press. 3. In the instructions

    I thought this would be great for those of us who are older and live alone, and might need help in a health crisis. Uninstalled it when I saw I couldn't configure it for this situation. Too bad - it's a brilliant idea.
