Free ADT Go Personal Safety App Provides Safety Away From Home

by Barb Gonzalez on January 10, 2018

ADT is a company known for home security solutions and now, with the free ADT Go app (free for iOS and Android) they bring that level of safety to people who are on the go. Created in partnership with Life360, the app shows the location of family members, driver safety and analytics.

ADT Go keeps you safe when you are out and about. The app has crash detection, and when there is an accident, ADT will call the driver or passenger to be sure all is okay. There is even Roadside Assistance to help if you were locked out of your car, ran out of gas, or need to change a tire. Real-time local crime data to let you know if you’ve found yourself in an unsafe neighborhood.

The app also has a large SOS panic button.  ADT is known for its first response service, which it brings to the ADT Go app.  Pressing and holding the button tells ADT agents to get first responders to you wherever you are outside the home. ADT will try to reach you to verify that you are in an emergency situation, but if they can’t reach you, they will send first responders to your last reported location. The app accesses your active location. Agents have breadcrumbs that can locate you via GPS which they share with authorities who will come to your location. 

The ADT Go app for offers a number of safety features to ease your mind about your family’s well-being. Family members can check-in to the app to let you know they've arrived safely at your destination.  The app also has a Safe Drive Review. Here you can see their drive history, speed and phone usage. If your kids are practicing reckless driving—talking or texting on the phone while driving, speeding, practicing aggressive driving, hard acceleration or braking—you have the evidence you need to talk to them about safe driving habits.
