WanderSafe is proud to introduce ‘beacon’, the ultimate non-violent safety solution, made to fit comfortably and discreetly in the palm of your hand. Available in two fashion colors, Onyx and Pristine, The beacon has three powerful functions to assist in de-escalating a potentially unsafe situation.
The side-click 1000-lumen torch instantly illuminates a situation to give clarity to your surroundings. Pressed twice the light becomes a strobe. Feel you are in need of some help or want to attract some attention? Twist the top to activate a 140-decibel personal alarm. The device has anti-slip grips for wet weather and is ambidextrous by design.
The beacon most impressive function is the silent Assist button. Press the WanderSafe icon on the beacon and your three pre-set trusted emergency contacts will be notified via an SMS that you are in need of a call back urgently and provided a map with your exact geolocation coordinates so they can investigate and take appropriate next steps.
Beacon is the first of our smart solutions for vulnerable travelers and commuters. We believe that by currating safety information from trusted sources including law enforcement, anti-trafficking NGOs, OSAC and sovereign governments’ travel advisories within the WanderSafe application and our smart beacons we can reduce human trafficking and violent/illicit crime.
In November 2018, we signed The Hague Accord with CrimeStoppers International formally pledging our commitment as a company to do our part to make the world safer.

Media Love Us
There are more than 850 million women and vulnerable people traveling every year. There are more than 100,000 cases of human trafficking in the US alone. We couldn’t find an existing non-violent ecosystem (hardware and software combo) to empower people to live without fear, so we created it.
Who Needs a ‘beacon’?
The beacon is a perfect solution for a student, senior parent, remote worker, urban commuter, school age youth, and anyone who might feel vulnerable. The beacon is designed to keep everyone safe.

Why Traveler Love WanderSafe
After being a victim to a professional pickpocket at an ATM in Bali I am able to notify other travelers of hot spots for criminal activity that targets female solo travelers like me in broad daylight.
With WanderSafe I would have been more informed about what type of taxis to take and been able to have a more effective way of asking for help when I was abducted by a taxi driver.
