Ulzi Delivers the World’s First Social Safety App, Driven by Connecting Communities

San Luis Obispo, CA, February 04, 2019 –(– Ulzi, a software company, announced today the much anticipated launch of their social safety network app set for February 7th, 2019. Ulzi aims to fill the market need for individuals that might face or are facing awkward dilemmas, uncomfortable moments and yes, even potentially dangerous situations, such as loved ones dealing with domestic violence or family members with chronic illness, such as dementia. Ulzi will also be releasing a notification system in 2019 to assist communities and first responders in coping with the aftermath of natural disasters.

By combining AI and a sophisticated GPS phone tracker with community involvement to create a social safety net, the company emphasizes real-time features, access, service and support to differentiate itself from price-oriented safety app companies. Perhaps the largest differentiator is that Ulzi’s app is free. “We believe that safety is a right, not a privilege,” comments Co-founder Maxwell Fong. “After several years of research, development and advise from public safety officials, we are confident that we understand the needs and processes when it comes to personal safety and urgent location assistance. We are proud to offer a common sense approach to safety – connecting people who want to help each other. Leading edge features and best-of-industry skills have been applied to design and development for a fitting solution that integrates with the user’s lifestyle and in the most cost-effective way…free.” The app’s focus is to make safety part of a user’s daily routine through social interactions and notifications. Basically the buddy system. Everyday.

The free app is available for iPhone and Android devices. Touted as “Neighborhood Watch 2.0,” Ulzi is great for college students, parents, work safety, natural disaster zones and everyone/everywhere in between. The initial launch will be released in beta and marketed in collaboration with eight identified California Universities extending to campus Greek Communities, parent groups and then expand nationwide with a major focus on organizations such as Domestic Violence, Violence Prevention, and Dementia cause groups.

Why Ulzi?:

Casual KIT: (keeping in touch casually with friends and family, automatically)

OMW (on my way) scenarios – have you ever you had a friend say that they left the building an hour ago, then 30 minutes later find out they are still on their couch? You can now check to see their exact GPS location, find out if they are in-route and prepare for their exact time of arrival.

The Tinder Date – Your girlfriend goes on a date, of course periodic status updates are a must. When, what, how and where updates to be shared privately and automatically through notification settings. Also, share not only updates on the date, but keep your close connections informed of your location so that they can stop worrying about you.

GNO (girl’s night out) – All girls check in before heading out for the night. Ensure that no one gets left behind either.

Bonus – Never show up at a party before anyone else, since you can see how many of your contacts are already there or in-route.

Awkward: (blind-date gone weird, break-room creep lurking)

Blind date night – no need to ask a friend to call for the save, just activate Ulzi and notifications will be sent to surrounding trusted contacts so that they can physically come to the rescue. You know, because climbing out of the restaurant window really isn’t that safe.

Sketchy: (unlit parking lot after work, strange bar, something doesn’t seem right)

Yellow alert – for when you want to customize who responds in an uncomfortable or escalating situation, notifications can be sent only to your circle of contacts. You can also set notifications if you deviate from planned routes. Don’t do the dark alley alone.

Potentially Dangerous: (walking alone, being left at a party, car breaks down in middle of nowhere near oncoming traffic)

Red alert – for when you want law enforcement and your emergency contacts to know you need help, this will send your exact location to local emergency services. Elderly grandparents and loved ones can keep in touch with the push of a button for simple use.

U Give:

Become a community responder – help out nearby community members who are in uncomfortable situations and need a helping hand by safely offering bystander intervention.

About Ulzi: As a technology company revolutionizing software’s role in personal safety, Ulzi is focused on building safer communities – instead of just safer people. Like the Neighborhood Watch of the past, Ulzi relies on neighbors, friends, and family to keep each other out of weird situations and create safe environments together. But unlike the traditional Neighborhood Watch model, Ulzi facilitates smarter safety practices and notifications with tools built on machine learning, crowd-sourcing and data analysis.
