Personal safety app WanderSafe teams up What3words


A revolutionary app that is saving lives with just three words is teaming up with an Australian company to create a “formidable” personal safety system.

What3words, which can pinpoint a person’s exact location to three square metres anywhere on the planet with a simple three-word code, is integrating its technology with WanderSafe, an app and “SOS” beacon designed to help vulnerable people avoid and escape dangerous situations.

“I attended a safety briefing in Canberra for women with disabilities two weeks ago and there was a woman at the end of the presentation who said to me, ‘You’ve saved three of my friends’ lives,’” said WanderSafe founder Stephenie Rodriguez. “I burst into tears.”
