How does CloseCircle work?
Yearly membership to CloseCircle gives members access via app, online portal and phone to a full personal safety and security service which includes:
24/7 tracking and monitoring by experienced security experts
In-App SOS panic button – send an SOS in a single tap, if you’re in need of immediate assistance and receive rapid crisis response from our security experts
Instant Alerts direct to your phone – real-time, location-relevant notifications about potential hazards within 50km radius, direct to your phone, with advice on how to avoid them
Unlimited pre-travel advice via phone, app or online – get the latest updates and travel advice on your destination before you set off
FREE evacuation from threats to safety including hurricanes, terrorism, civil unrest etc. (with no post-event claims to file)
Location Check – family members can track your movements, see your last known position and any active alerts nearby from any connected device.
The App enables the security experts in CloseCircle’s Global Operations Centre to monitor users wherever they are. The service also comes with secure access to the CloseCircle portal which provides detailed global security information and analysis. Crucially, this online portal enables members with the family package to locate and track their members, wherever they are in the world, whatever the time of day.
In addition to the app and online features, CloseCircle members have access to our Global Operations Centre, staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year by experienced security professionals. Members can contact us via phone, SMS or email to ask for pre-travel advice, guidance on what to do if something does go wrong, and in the event of an emergency, rapid response and where necessary, on the ground support to keep them safe.
Unlike other travel security services, CloseCircle operates in a proactive and pre-emptive way. Our Global Operations Centre is watching over all CloseCircle members 24/7 and if any member is caught within the impact radius of an incident, then the experts in the GOC will proactively contact that member to let know about the situation, check if they are ok and give them advice about how to stay away from the risks or get themselves out of danger. CloseCircle is aiming to be pre-emptive wherever possible and to actually warn members away from dangers that they may not even yet be aware of.
Should a member find themselves in an emergency they simply press the ‘SOS panic button’ in the app. Our Operations Centre will be notified straight away and begin the emergency response procedure, doing everything necessary to secure the member’s safety. In situations where there is an ongoing threat to life, CloseCircle will evacuate you and your family from overseas, all at no additional expense and with no claims to file, as part of your CloseCircle membership.
Unlike other traveller tracking apps, tracking is based on significant location change and not on set tracking times. With this method of tracking, the device’s battery life is maintained far longer than with typical tracking solutions.
