SOS LINK(TM) Personal Plus is a software app that runs on selected smartphones. Pressing the Personal Plus icon turns a smartphone into a personal physical security device. Automatically an audible siren can be selected, and numerous photos are taken of the threat, conflict or witness situation. These photos are sent in a few seconds by email to pre-registered helpers, along with a GPS location on a bing(TM) map, powered by NAVTEQ(TM). Now, these pre-registered helpers also receive a text message and phone call alerting them to the emails that have been sent to them. SOS LINK(TM) Online securely receives and archives all photos, time, date and maps in the member’s personal account.

SOS LINK Personal Plus retails for $14.99/year. Our website www.soslink.com directs customers to purchases and downloads for iPhone®, BlackBerry®, and soon for Android(TM) based phones. This website also enables members to access SOS LINK Online – a private secure web portal for managing profiles, photos taken and helpers.

“Our SOS LINK software apps take advantage of the portability and widespread use of smartphones. Increasingly, news stories and published statistics document the threats, crimes and conflict situations against people when they are mobile – whether jogging, commuting, walking, travelling, at school or work,” said Chris Rush, Vice President of SOS LINK. “Personal Plus is an added layer of security for people – wherever wireless coverage is in place. Today that’s almost everywhere in the world. We hope the use of SOS LINK will help prevent crime and other conflict incidents, while alerting those that can help immediately in the situation. SOS LINK Personal Plus can provide authorities with solid evidence of perpetrators and their acts.”

SOS LINK Personal Plus can also be used to take photos of other events, such as witnessing an accident, suspicious activity or to document theft or damage. The SOS LINK patented process provides authenticated data (numerous photos, time and date stamp; GPS location, secure storage) and can be used as evidence.

SOS LINK is a leader in personal portable security. We develop innovative patent-based software solutions for smartphones that take advantage of their portability and increasing widespread use around the world.
