How TerrorMate works
TerrorMate's 24-hour international operations center is based in Belgium and directed by former military and intelligence personnel who analyze and share vital information with the public during critical events.
TerrorMate quickly alerts users to possible and actual terror attacks. The app automatically utilizes geolocation to deliver information tailored to each user's specific environment. Alerts appear within minutes of an attack or alert along with advice on the optimal way to stay safe in the affected area. Users are swiftly steered away from danger with up-to-date alerts and clear directions. Concise real-time advisories and intelligence reports keep users continuously informed as events unfold.
Our free in-app messaging feature, T-Chat, was inspired by stories emerging from the 2017 Manchester terror attacks, when thousands of teenagers scrambled to flee the stadium while parents did not know where they were. TerrorMate's unique location-sharing feature allows users to view a map displaying actual positions of friends and family in real time. T-Chat helps users safely and effectively message loved ones and receive prompt replies during an extreme incident.
Users are also able to upload real-time media of any attack or suspicious activity as well as send anonymous tips and share information with friends and family via the TerrorMate trusted contacts feature.
