I work in the security industry and I can truly appreciate this app. Must have for some scenarios (kids and single ladies especially, depending on threat). Thanks and I WILL recommend.

Thank you for your suggestion!

We will be adding this feature in the next releases, so stay tuned! We were also thinking of adding an option to send the last known location, in case localization is not possible at that precise moment.

Let us know what else you'd like to see in this app!
