This is a sponsored post for Verizon. All opinions are my own. In this day and age, we need to use every tool at our disposal to help us stay safe with these 3 best safety apps for Boomers. Up until I attended the Verizon 55 Plus Boomer Workshop, I still did not have a passcode on my phone! I never keep and financial information on there so it seemed like an added hassle. Don’t worry, there is one now! With as much as I travel, it had me thinking, which apps are the best apps for safety!

Family Locator – Life 360

Sadly, last year, there was a woman who wandered away from her families business and was never found again. On my last trip to the grocery store I lost my husband, forget about if we are at an amusement park or on a cruise ship! I walked around and around and he kept evading me! With this app, I could have found him in aisle 7 and watched where he walked from there. Whether you are a senior or have kids, this app is a great tool to keep track of everyone.

With Life 360 you can:

  • Create your own private groups.
  • Chat with circles of loved ones or teammates in Family Locator for free.

  • See the location of lost or stolen phones
  • Works with both Android and I Phones.

Panic Alarm

If you are going to an unsafe area then you will want a safety app like this on your phone. You can keep the icon on your home screen and if press on the icon a high pitched alarm will alert everyone nearby.

    These are great. I had no idea they existed. I think they could also be used for those suffering from mental illness in a crisis situation. I did share this with our coordinator so that we can share this with some of our more vulnerable clients.

      We lose a lot of seniors in FL and if they have their phone they can be found!
