Friend Walk

Send your location in real-time to a friend so they can watch you as you walk to your destination! They'll watch you and can trigger a call to emergency services if necessary.

Here's how it works:

  1. Download the Fanshawe Stay Safe App.
  2. Tap the Friend Walk feature.
  3. Tap the Start Friend Walk button and pick a contact to send your location.
  4. Your friend will receive the message with a link.  When they click it, they'll be taken to a map with your location and you'll be connected to them.
  5. Pick your destination and start moving.
  6. If you're in a panic, hit the button to notify your friend and start an emergency call.
  7. If you or your friend disconnects, it will end the walk and give you the option to make an emergency call (just in case!).
  8. When you reach your destination, finish your trip and disconnect.
