Local warnings

Stay safe at your current location

People have their phone with them (almost) all the time. In the event of a local danger, the Guardian Angel feature (“Schutzengel”) provides warnings and recommended actions on your phone, and it won’t even drain your battery.

Once enabled, your Guardian Angel can reach you wherever you are (even if the app isn’t running). You can also save other locations for family, friends and co-workers to your favorites and share warnings over social media.

KATWARN is serious about privacy and data protection: the app doesn’t collect any personal data or store your location history.
