Luxury dating website, Seeking.com, has committed $30 million USD to introduce voice activated safety measures for users, in association with UrSafe. Features include allowing friends to virtually track your location, fake calls, emergency SOS alerts and safety checks.
Seeking.com has made a multi-million dollar commitment to UrSafe, a premier hands-free, voice-activated personal safety app fully integrated with 911. As of February 1, 2022, everyone in the Seeking community will have access to a free 60-day trial.
Laura Jacobs, professional matchmaker and dating expert, said: “Meeting a date for the first time is always exciting but intelligent preparedness is key. No matter what time of day you go out, where you are headed, or if you’re meeting someone you’ve just met or known for a few months, it’s comforting to know there’s a safeguard in place to avoid potentially risky situations. It’s peace of mind.”
UrSafe’s unique, advanced technology offers protection in a wide variety of emergency circumstances. The app includes real-time location sharing as well as voice-activated safe words that immediately notify law enforcement, and friends and family, if the user feels endangered. UrSafe has started introducing API integrations with global emergency services in more than 200 countries and territories.
Brandon Wade, founder and CEO of Seeking.com, said: “Keeping our members safe is of the utmost importance to everyone at Seeking. Seeking is an industry leader at the forefront of implementing safety and security measures to protect its members and prohibit illegal activities. Our affiliation with UrSafe allows us to continue to be one of the safest and most secure dating communities.”
Dr Anthony Oyogoa, CEO and Co-Founder of UrSafe, said: “It’s inspiring to see everyone at Seeking so invested in the safety of its members. Together we hope to set the new safety standard for global online dating.”
