Fanshawe Stay Safe app's Work Alone feature:

The Work Alone feature on our Fanshawe Stay Safe app will automatically check in on you while working or studying alone and can automatically trigger a call to your emergency contact if you fail to check in at the allotted time.

How it works:

  1. Download the Fanshawe Stay Safe App.
  2. Tap the Work Alone feature and register to sign up for Work Alone (or "Log in" if you've already registered).
  3. Once you've registered, you can tap "Start Work Alone Now", and fill in the required fields to start your Work Alone session.
  4. The app will send you a push notification, asking you to "Check in". If you check in to confirm you're OK, then the app will send you another push notification at the next specified time.
  5. If you fail to check in within a 10-minute period, the app will make an outbound call to your "designated contact" letting them know you've failed to check in.
  6. Otherwise, you continue to check in at the regular intervals, and the Work Alone ends at the designated time.
