When traveling, one’s usual support structure to handle unexpected issues might not be available to the same extent. The Travel Risk Awareness course teaches how to consider the effect traveling might have and how to prepare before a trip to better mitigate risk.
This course provides useful information and tips to consider during the preparation stages before a trip. It helps identify practical problems that travelers may encounter while abroad, such as visa and vaccination requirements, and prepare for those possibilities.
Getting around an unfamiliar city can be challenging. Regardless of whether using private or public transport, there will always be risks that could jeopardize a journey. This course highlights certain tips and tools that help navigate transportation when traveling.
On any trip abroad, even to countries thought to be safe, it is important to consider the cultural and social differences. Conflicts or adverse situations might be more difficult to handle away from home, especially if the language is unfamiliar. Some habits and customs that are common in one’s home country might be disrespectful or even criminal in some places. This course highlights risks and advice on how to act in many different situations.
This course covers the topic of cybercrime, which comprises any criminal act involving computers and networks, as well as traditional crimes conducted through the internet. The prevalence and cost of cybercrime, including identity theft, hacking of bank accounts, and loss of intellectual property, has ramped up significantly over the last decade. This course provides key insights on how to identify different types of cybercrime attempts in order to avoid them to the greatest extent possible.
A traveler may be exposed to a variety of health risks in unfamiliar environments. Most risks can be minimized by taking precautions before, during, and after a trip. We list such precautions in this e-learning course.
Navigating crowded spaces is common when visiting large cities. Travelers will often arrive at busy stations and airports. They sometimes may have to pass close to high-risk events, such as political rallies. Large crowds may cause disruption to public transport, making it difficult to navigate the city. This course teaches preventative measures that will help reduce those risks.
Women may face additional security risks while abroad. This course, which is intended for both men and women, explores the various risks women travelers can face in order to help avoid dangers and better enable providing assistance to others.
Members of the LGBTQ community may face unique issues when traveling that are dangerous to neglect. In some parts of the world, acceptance for people identifying as LGBTQ may not be what travelers are used to in their home countries, such as discrimination or targeted violence. This course highlights such potential risks of LGBTQ travelers and lists what to read up on before traveling, such as the legal environment, potential cultural biases in that country, etc.
Terrorism has been a serious threat for a long time. Terrorist attacks are often directed against civilians and tourists to generate the greatest amount of publicity. This course teaches travelers what to look for in terms of potential vulnerability in their surroundings.
Carjacking is a form of robbery where a criminal forcibly removes a motorist from their car and steals it. Perpetrators of carjacking often wield firearms. In some parts of the world, this form of crime is a pervasive problem, while it is largely unheard of in other countries. This course explores what to know about carjacking and steps to protect against it while traveling.
This course provides information about what to expect before traveling to higher and extreme risk locations, such as war zones or former war zones, often called hostile environments. A hostile environment could be defined as an area that is extremely volatile, with widespread conflict, localized insurgencies, criminal gangs, or ongoing violent civil unrest that are affecting businesses, visitors, and the local population.
The Home Page of the Safeture Mobile Application has a feed with the latest alerts relevant to you. Your privacy settings will influence what alerts are shown since they are filtered based on your location. The more exact location you allow, the more relevant the alerts you will receive. If you select additional countries of interest in the settings, you will also see those alerts in the feed on the Home Page.
When you receive a medium- or high-risk alert, you can confirm that you are OK by pressing the I’m OK button inside the alert. The Safeture Platform then informs the Administrator about your well-being. This input will help the potential Assistance Providers or your own Administrator(s) to follow up only with those who have not confirmed they are OK or have clicked the Emergency button.
Since alerts are distributed based on your last known location, your privacy settings will directly impact what alerts you will receive. With a region or state level set, you will get all alerts within that region or state. You can also select a country of interest to get alerts from even though you are not currently located there.
We highly value end-user privacy and therefore give end-users the option to set their own privacy level by themselves in the Safeture Mobile Application. There, you can choose between the following privacy levels:
The exact GPS coordinates will be used to represent the end-user’s location.
City-level means that the end user’s location will be anonymized to a 20 x 20 km square, giving a bit more privacy, but while still being able to receive relevant alerts based on a fairly accurate location.
Region/State means that the app will resolve which region or state the user is located within and send use this as the end-user’s location.
The Check-In button is located at the top of the Home Page and is used to send up-to-date location reports to the Safeture Platform with respect to your privacy settings. Normally, the app sends location reports at intervals, so in most cases, the button provides a way to make sure an up-to-date location is sent.
If Scheduled Check-Ins are added as an additional service, Administrators can set certain dates and times when end-users will get notified to check in as a safety measure. If a check-in deadline is missed by one or several users, the system will trigger notifications to alert the Administrator.
In the middle of the bottom bar inside the Safeture Mobile Application is the Emergency button. When you tap it, you are directed to the Emergency section containing several different emergency numbers. At the top, you will find one or more SOS buttons (depending on the account setup). Tap on it to enable emergency mode. The Safeture Platform will inform both the Safeture Administrators and your security/medical providers simultaneously (if integrated into the platform) about the emergency. While in emergency mode, Safeture automatically informs your security provider of your current location for prompt assistance.
Note: You can share your location and initiate emergency mode via SMS even if your mobile device cannot access the internet when you are experiencing an emergency.
In the emergency section, you will also have access to all local emergency numbers, which are automatically updated based on the country where you are located. Finally, the emergency section also contains a link to a map view plotted with all nearby healthcare providers.
At the top of the Emergency section of the Safeture Mobile Application, you will find two tabs. Navigating to the Location tab will enable you to quickly share your location.
Click on the globe icon in the bottom menu to find country-specific information for the country you are in or a manually chosen location. The country information in the app is identical to the Country Information module in the Safeture Web Portal.
