Real stories from real Protect subscribers.

🚗 Safer ridesharing

A Protect subscriber called in as she was leaving a party. Agent Ariahna made sure she got a ride share safely, and monitored her live location until she reached her destination safely.

🗺 No address? No problem.

A Protect subscriber called in disoriented and dehydrated while on a hike. Agent Aaron helped determine their exact location using their mobile phone data to coordinate an emergency response and stayed on a call with the hikers until help arrived.

🐶 Lost and found

A Protect subscriber called to report that their dog, Lucky, was missing. Agent Deanna created an incident so the Citizen community could broadcast live or comment if Lucky was spotted. The dog was found at a police station after a Citizen user left a tip in the comments.

🚶🏼A digital guardian

A Protect subscriber, an elderly man who lives alone, calls every night as he takes a stroll around his neighborhood. He has peace of mind knowing his Protect Agent has his back in case of a fall or other distress.
