Snug, the Safety Check-in App for Seniors Aging Alone


Want peace of mind that someone will know if you need help?  

Snug is a free, friendly daily check-in service for people living alone. 

The app is simple and easy to understand, no matter how comfortable (or uncomfortable!) one may be with new technology. It works on an iPhone and the Android smartphone.  

It's my personal check-in buddy that I've used for well over two years. It gives me the confidence knowing someone has my back and is looking out for my safety.  

Fortunately, the app is on my iPhone so there's no need to wear anything around my neck or anywhere else!! All that's required is a push of this green check-in on my iPhone screen every morning and I'm good to go!! 

Snug offers several options to fit your needs.

1. Free version - just sign up and you are good to go.

2. Get the Dispatch Support 



It’s so simple:

  1. Just Sign up here for peace of mind (I'm an affiliate of Snug) by providing your name and address, then choosing your emergency contacts and daily check in time.
  2. Snug pings the user at their chosen time every day, prompting them to visit the app to “check in.”
  3. When you check in, you receive an inspirational Quote of the Day and the 24 hour timer resets. If the user does not check in, Snug initiates an alert to make sure that they are ok:
  4. For users on the free plan, like me, Snug will send each of your emergency contacts a text message saying that you have missed your check-in.
  5. For users on the Snug Dispatch plan, a Snug dispatcher will call your cell phone and ask if you are alright.  If you do not pick up, they will leave a voicemail with a callback number. They will then proceed to call every one of your contacts, in order. If you have not checked-in by a certain time, and the dispatcher does not have confirmation that you are okay, or that one of your emergency contacts will check on you, they will dispatch a wellness check to your last known location.

To me, the Snug app brings a lot more light heartedness than any other check-in or alert out there.

Over 400,000 check-ins so far.

But like anything, apps have their limits and each of us needs to know our health conditions and to learn the deficiencies of a product before we rely on one to keep us safe. Just make sure it addresses and meets YOUR needs.
