The Emergency Panic Button is an app that must be pre-installed on all Android devices!
Improve your own safety by installing our emergency alert button and let everybody know you are in trouble by letting the app send a short alert notification to your friends or family via email or SMS/text message and calling a number with a simple push of the power or soft widget button.

If you care for the safety of your family members, loved ones, let them know about this App. Are you a lone worker or working somewhere outdoors? You also need this App!

Features at a glance:
✔ Android wear support (one button click required) - the only Emergency app with Wear support!
✔ Set up a list of contacts (phone numbers or emails) and every time you are in need of assistance (being attacked, robbed, lost or having health problems) you can issue an emergency call by a combination of presses on the power/sleep button (fast presses within 2 seconds to avoid false alarms!) OR with a Home Screen or Lock Screen Widget (same number of fast presses for safety reasons).
✔ Current location (either GPS, network or both) and predefined message will be sent to your selected contacts as SMS and or Email.
✔ A contact person set up by you will also be called
✔ Home Screen and Lock Screen Widget
✔ Use the sms contact feature to post on Twitter and Facebook when you are in trouble via their post from sms features.
✔ Set up a trusted list numbers and everybody in that list (or everybody knowing the SMS command if you choose to do so) can send SMS commands to the phone if they suspect that something wrong is happening to you, even if no emergency has been triggered.
✔ Receive one time location updates or start automatic locations predefined by the device holder in the App's settings
✔ Password protection, both for the app itself or for the SMS commands.
✔ Auto enabling GPS. The app will try to auto enable the GPS chip even if disabled in Android settings to get the best current position (works on almost any Android device, but might not work on some!)
✔ Stealth mode - Choose to have a notification icon in a case of emergency or disable it and run the emergency in stealth mode, so that potential abusers would not suspect anything.


Use case scenarios:
✔ Install the app on your device on the device of a family member (parents, spouse, kids, relatives etc.), boy/girlfriend, friend you care about and let them add you as a contact in a case of Emergency.
If they are in trouble, all they have to do is press the power button a few times and you will be notified of their emergency. They can use the app as a panic button.
✔ If you are being attacked, robbed, or just lost, having health problems and no way to call or text, just press the power button a few times and all of your contacts will know that you are in trouble.
✔ Your kids are running late from school and you are worried? No Problem, just send a location request to their phones and you will be notified of their position.
✔ You could also use the app to track your lost android or stolen android or find my phone.
If you have questions, suggestions please email us from within the app or to the email below.

The number of presses of the power button shall be 3 also. And once triggered, a confirmation vibration should be included. With these, I would consider 5 stars !

SMS location (to receive location after issuing an SMS) option not working? Be sure you uncheck the "Trusted list" or input the Trusted list exactly as in the recipients (international codes and all).

I just downloaded this yesterday. My problem is that I can only figure out how to put in 1 emergency contact. I went on today to work on it more and I can find no way to open to the page.

Excellent App. Performs as advertised and as expected in testing. One suggestion, increase the text message character length.

Outstanding app, however the panic keystrokes don't always immediately cue the callouts. I'm still satisfied with this for my partner and I.

In an emergency I don't care to be navigating menus, and this app fits the bill. I would have rated it a 5, but it seems I must press the power button a minimum of 8 times to make it trigger reliably, regardless of the configured setting of 4 (Galaxy S vibrant). Still a great app though!

On my previous phone, this was awesome. Current phone (Galaxy Note), it keeps sending SOS messages, no matter what. Something's triggering it.

D70%

Cant initiate by pressing power button. Useless.

E70%
by E####:

As someone with a potential life threatening medical condition, and not wanting to be continually chained to my home and landline, the concept behind this app offered just what I was looking for. The help / FAQ's could use some work as initially they were quite confusing, not surprising as this is my first smartphone (Google Nexus 5 with LG QuickCover). New option to put the red button widget on the lock screen is a definite improvement.

One must power on and power off a number of times to trigger this application. This kind of function is not working on the newer galaxy s4

It s a very good app. Didn't find anything like that so far. The major advantage is that it can send sms with position. I travel a lot abroad and I dont have always internet access. It works great on Samsung s2 4.3. I dont know how ppl can trigger it by mistake: you need to press the button fast and for at least 4 times! Anyway I have a request: is it possible to choose which button will trigger the alarm? For example some covers cover power button and it s not easy to press it. In addition, widget is not useful since my phone is locked with pin so noone close to me can trigger the alarm in case I m not conscious. It will be great to choose home button instead. 5 stars when it will be possible

Had application on HTC and it worked great; however, power button on my S3 will not start an emergency, which is most likely user error. The developer has contacted me and is helping me to make sure I know what I am doing. This is a great and I hope I don't have to use it in an emergency.

So far, so good! I'd add a feature to the test link that informs recipients that it is a test. My first use caused a LOT of alarm!

S70%

Installed on my HTC Rezound. At first, the app seemed to generate emergency messages all by itself, without being triggered by me! The developer provided some quick support, and I was able to get that first problem fixed. The problem I'm now working on is that once the app has been triggered, it keeps generating new messages.

Having a Pre-recorded phone message that auto dialed a pre-set # and played it would be needed. Not all your emergency contacts will have SMS on them

I would advise a little practice prior to a real emergency, but the app works like it should. Could be a life saver. Devs are very responsive.

I don't like the idea of needing this app, in the unsafe world we live , but so far it worked great!

4 times is enough, but you have to be fast. We have a tutorial video here that shows how to do it, please watch it and change the review accordingly if needed, thank you...

Not reliable on my galaxy s3. Unbelievable! And I paid for this!? Sure they can make it work. But the number of presses in a short span of time is difficult for users especially in an emergency situation. If I can't make it work right now, how will this thing help me in an emergency crisis? I also think the instructions are flawed. On the plus side the developers are helpful but they refuse to improve the software for ease of use. The emergency button is not so discreet. Depending on your emergency situation, especially when your safety is at stake, you sometimes want to be discrete when pressing the emergency button. With the size of the screen of the galaxy s3 and the huge button in the home screen, you can't press the emergency buttons without anyone suspecting.
