  • What does the check-in feature do
    If you are studying or working late or alone on campus, SafeZone has a Check-in and Check-in Timer feature which allows you to share your location with UWA Security.

  • What if I accidentally raise an alert
    If you accidentally press a SafeZone alert button, you can simply tap it again during the countdown timer to cancel the call. If the alert is already sent, you can still cancel it through the app. Security may also reach out to confirm your wellbeing. Please respond to their message or call to let them know you're safe. 
  • When should I use the first aid button
    Use the green first aid button if you, or someone nearby requires medical attention. A qualified first aid officer will be dispatched to your location to assist. 
  • When should I use the non-urgent button

    The non-urgent help button is there for various situations where you might need security assistance. Here are some examples: 

    • Requesting a safety escort after dark 
    • Reporting a potential security concern 
    • Feeling uncomfortable making an emergency alert 
    • Any other scenario where you need to contact Security 
  • Who will answer my call or alert me
    UWA Security will be notified and respond to your alerts. 
  • How is my privacy protected
    SafeZone prioritises your privacy. Your location information is only shared when you send an alert, use check-in features, or submit a location-tagged tip report. Federal and State Privacy Laws protect all user data collected through SafeZone. Read about SafeZone’s privacy provisions or check out the protecting your privacy video
  • Will the app drain my battery
    SafeZone incorporates features to optimise battery life. Motion detection minimises location updates (subject to your device permission settings). The app offers different activity profiles; "default" is recommended for most users. Remember to minimise background app usage by closing SafeZone when not actively using it.
