Act faster in a Pack

Howl is more than a safety app. It turns your whole phone into a safety device. Our emergency alert system lets you call for help through Siri, Google Home, or Alexa. No more fumbling for the help button in your app. Add emergency contacts to your Pack. Alert them when you're in danger.

Take control of your safety

Most safety apps out there today only help you when something goes wrong. Unfortunately, we can’t prevent bad things from happening, but we can reduce the odds by building safer communities. Howl gives you tools to make your community and family safer. We hope you won’t ever need a panic button. But if you do, it’s always ready.
