One of the features of the Trygg platform that provides the greatest reassurance to staff is the personal panic alarm on the Trygg Mobile App. This discrete alarm can be activated in seconds when a user is concerned for their safety and wants to alert their colleagues. Once activated, an alarm will sound on the Trygg oversight dashboard and the user’s live location will continuously transmit until the alarm is deactivated from the dashboard.
The panic alarm can be easily concealed on the Trygg app once activated and cannot be deactivated from the device itself. The activation process is also designed to prevent the user setting off the panic alarm by accident.

"Ease of deployment, user-friendly interface and custom-mapping made Trygg an obvious choice; satisfying capability requirements across security and logistics disciplines. Furthermore, the option to field Trygg with an affordable satellite device to cover areas of sub-optimal GSM coverage was a significant selling point." - Security Lead, Oil and Gas, Niger Delta
"Very glad we switched providers! Trygg offers Excellent service, their Ops and PM are always on hand to give, expert advice and training. The dashboard and App are Easy to understand. Easy to use. Easy to make to most of the features. The team also listen to feedback and have adapted the App to better suit end user needs." - Security Director, International Development, Iraq
"We have been using Trygg since January 2019 and it has come to be an essential security management tool. We operate in some of the least stable areas of Iraq and Trygg’s tracking and journey log features have been particularly helpful in ensuring oversight of our staff." - NGO Head of Mission, Iraq
"We are really happy with Trygg, especially the journey mode, which allows us to track our trips in Mali and Senegal and demonstrate how hard we are working to our donors." - Ops Manager, West Africa,
"Before Trygg, we only had a WhatsApp group to keep track of incidents, this is a fantastic platform." - Country Manager, Iraq
"I wish we had access to this during the Mosul relief operations, I dropped hundreds of pins on my mapping platform to show risk areas and distribution points but it meant nothing to anyone but me." - Security Co-ordinator, Iraq
A consultancy offering security risk management solutions to organisations operating in emerging and complex environments decided to incorporate a staff location sharing and monitoring solution. They chose Trygg as it is an integrated solution that provides the live location of users, sends mass communications, and shares map-specific information about incidents and relevant locations.
Integrating Trygg into its security risk management solution enabled the client to provide a full monitoring service to clients while providing peace of mind, especially for employees travelling to and from high-risk locations. Trygg uses GPS and satellite technology to effectively locate users travelling around the world via their smartphone, tablet or satellite device.
The security consultancy was supporting an election monitoring group with training, advice and direct oversight through their 24/7 security centre. Staff from the election monitoring group downloaded the Trygg app on their smartphones before deploying, allowing them to communicate and be located by the security centre staff as required.
The partnership proved to be paramount for a marketing team at an election rally in Bangladesh where terror attacks placed them in extreme danger. One colleague lost contact with the rest of the team and returned to their hotel on foot, while their colleagues returned in a taxi. Both the lone team member and one of the rest of the team activated their panic alarms on the Trygg App, alerting the client’s Security Centre, who were able to remotely assess the situation, reassure the team that their colleague was on their way to the hotel, and advise them on the necessary steps to take.
The Security Centre was able to locate each member of the team using the location sharing feature on the Trygg App. Communicating with the election team via the Trygg app, the Security Centre was even able to inform them that the route their taxi was taking would take them near a recent attack location and instruct them to take a different route.
