Download the Skyresponse Personal Safety App
- If you have a device with Applie IoS (e.g. an iPhone) and an account at Apple App Store you can download the app by clicking this link. Install the app according to the instructions shown by the app on your phone.
- If you have a device with Google Android and a Google Play account you can download the app from Google Play by clicking this link. However, Google Play does not allow all functions of the phone to be fully used by the app. It is therefore recommended that you follow the instructions below to download the full version of the app directly from Skyresponse AB.
Downloading the full version of the Personal Safety App for Android
The Skyresponse Personal Safety App requires permission to use certain telephony functions that ensure that calls are successful and that it is possible to locate the calling user, also if the network quality is low. Availability of such redundant communication paths increase the reliability of the app significantly. Unfortunately, Google has recently changed its policies for what functions that may be accessed by Android apps offered via Google Play. Skyresponse therefore offers the possibility to download the full version of the Personal Safety App for Android directly from Skyresponse AB.
How to download and install the full version
From your Android mobile phone, access this page and click on the link below to download the app.
System dialog questions
You may see a dialog box where you can grant permission to a browser (if it was not granted earlier).
You may see a dialog box asking about storage access, where you should click “Continue“.
Another system dialog may appear, with options to allow or deny the browser to access files on the device. Click “Allow“.

Install the app
After the download is complete, you can start the installation by clicking the “Open” button in the dialog box shown.
Alternatively, you can locate the downloaded app in your browser’s download history, in the Android’s default “Downloads” app (before Android 6.0 only), or just find the APK file with your file manager (usually in the Download folder on the device’s internal storage). Click the downloaded file to start the installation process.
On Android 6.0 and above, you will see a dialog box telling you that installation of apps obtained from unknown sources is blocked (if it wasn’t enabled earlier).
- Click the “Settings” option to go to Android’s Security settings.
- Inside the Security settings, find the “Unknown sources” option under the “Device administration” group and enable download from unknown sources.
On Android 8.0 and above, you will see a dialog box telling you that you are not allowed to install unknown apps from this source.
- Click the “Settings” option to go to the browser’s (or file manager’s) security page.
- On the security page, enable the “Allow from this source” option and go back to the application to proceed with the installation.
Old versions (before Android 6.0)
- The installation window of older versions than Android 6.0 contains a list of all required permissions.
- You should scroll it to the end to see the “Install” button. Click it.
On newer Android versions, the list of permissions is usually empty and the “Install” button is enabled right away. Click it.
The installation process takes a few seconds, sometimes longer depending on the device. After the installation is finished, you can return to the home screen or start the application.
