When we turn on the news today we are bombarded with horror stories of robberies, sexual assaults, kidnappings and murder. In response, millions of terrified Americans rush out and buy the best home security systems money can buy. But what happens when we aren’t in the safety of our homes? Even those of us who live and work in the safest parts of town have moments when we feel uneasy; it could be on the walk to your car in a vacant parking lot, or an early morning jog through a deserted park. Despite the lengths we go to avoid harm’s way, there will always be moments where we feel at risk.

Luckily, there’s no need to live in fear; peace of mind is right at your fingertips. MyForce is an innovative security service that acts as your mobile bodyguard.

Unlike other personal security options, MyForce doesn’t track your location unless you send an alert, making it an idea option for college students who

want to be safe while still maintaining their privacy. Just like your home security system, you arm it when you want it. Perhaps you are walking home alone late at night and you feel nervous. Simply activate the app and keep your phone at the ready. If you come across danger all you need to do is press the button and an alert will be sent instantly to a live, professional agent who will listen and discreetly assess your situation.

In addition to protection from potential attacks, MyForce can be used if someone is breaking into your home, if you are involved in an auto accident, experiencing a medical emergency, or witness to a crime, fire or assault.
