The Hollie Guard app is best described as a digital personal alarm. Instead of carrying an extra device with you, Hollie Guard is an app on your smartphone that can help keep you safe.

Once you've downloaded the app and set up an account, you select your plan. The free plan will allow you to add trusted contacts, raise alerts, track a journey, monitor a meeting, record audio and visual evidence and send accident alerts.

To activate the app, you just shake or tap your device which will notify you chosen contacts, pinpoint your location and activate camera and microphone to record potential evidence.

There are two modes within Hollie Guard: Deterrent and Stealth.

Deterrent Mode

The idea of Deterrent mode is to make it clear to anyone in your surrounding area that an alert has been raised and to reduce the risk of an attack. The phone will display an obvious red alert screen capturing your GPS location, as well as audio/video footage that may be used to assess danger and collate evidence.

With a second shake of the phone it will generate a high-pitched alarm and a flashing light to attract help.

Stealth Mode

Alternatively, Stealth Mode allows you to raise an alert silently while displaying a default home screen that would look inconspicuous to the attacker, thereby giving the impression that no alarm has been triggered. This feature is useful in certain situations in which raising an alert could increase the risk of harm if the assailant becomes aware that an alert has been triggered.
