We provide an app which notifies you when one of your listed help-requesters sends out an emergency. Every other help-provider will be notified once one responds to the emergency.

What is OSO?

It can be especially helpful for

  • Kids
  • Athletes
  • People with special needs

Feeling safe

Sometimes you are not as clearheaded as you may think, especially when adrenalin rushes through your blood. Knowing you can inform someone by just pressing a button to inform them about your whereabouts is reassuring and will reduce the stress.

Existing solutions

Many companies provide tracking devices and platforms to list a person as emergency contact. These tools and platforms are often too limited. They only let you list one contact, don't let you adjust the channel where you will receive a notification and you don't even know what will happen with your data. There is no real standard since everyone provides their own solution.
