App-based personal security service MyForce being offered at Quincy U
MyForce, offered by a company of the same name, a personal security service delivered through a smart phone app, is now being offered at Quincy University in Illinois. The app, which we predict will be more popular with parents than with students, is capable of listening to a students interaction and offers location tracking in case help is needed. MyForce runs on iOS, Android, and BlackBerry, and will run $11.99 per month or $99.99 per year, the latter of which is a discount off the regular price of $199.99 annually.
Once a user subsribes, registers at the company’s website and installs the app, he or she can simply push a button on their device to notify MyForce staff of possible trouble. MyForce tunes into and records what’s going on around the user and locates them via smartphone GPS.
Then, if necessary, the MyForce service contacts local police and relays incident information to the university’s public safety security officers, “allowing us to respond with precision and speed,” the university informed its community when announcing the service.
