How do I protect myself in emergencies?

Advance planning is important!

It's best to make an appointment in advance with friends. Together you are safer! Complete your CrowdProtect emergency profile and decide who should be notified in an emergency.


Brightness is your friend!

Take a detour if you can walk on a well-lit, wide street where you can see everything from a distance. Offenders avoid noise and light.

Self-confidence is half the rent!

Walk upright with a view to the future and, above all, purposefully. Offenders seek victims, from whom they expect little resistance.

Listen to your intuition

If you feel something strange or you feel uncomfortable listen to your gut feeling. If possible, search for trustworthy people whom you can join.

Shake off pursuers

Cross the street at right angles and see if you are actually being followed. If you find a publicly accessible building / shop go there. Otherwise pretend that you live in one of the buildings, go right there and ring the local residents.


Draw the attention of the pedestrians on you!

If you feel annoyed, go at a distance and say loud and determined: "Do not touch me!". That's how you make others aware of you. In addition, address passers-by directly and ask for help. In addition, press the CrowdProtect Help button to alert friends and helpers in the area and start a sound recording. In serious cases, click the police speed dial button to alert the police.

Create an emergency profile!

In particular, in the case of medical emergencies or physical violence, it is important that emergency physicians immediately find your medical emergency information digitally and physically. There are already very good solutions, for example the EmergencyQR of Vitabook, You can enter this code in your CrowdProtect emergency profile. Alerted helpers will be directed to your Vitabook emergency profile.
