  • UF Mobile Safety App By TapShield

    One of the biggest priorities of this university - above research and education - is campus safety.  It is our responsibility and our duty to students and their families, as well as faculty and staff, to ensure that the University of Florida is a safe place to study, work, play and live.

    In our efforts to ensure that the University of Florida is a safe place, Student Government launched the UF Mobile Safety App by TapShield to provide an extra layer of protection on campus.   

    The UF Mobile Safety App pairs mobile GPS technology with existing campus safety infrastructure, and allows students to summon help from anywhere on campus in just a tap. The app features the ability to launch a direct phone call to university police, two-way messaging between users and dispatch, a timer option designed to provide security while walking home or going for a run, and yank technology, which activates an alert by yanking headphones from the device. Each alert includes the user's real-time GPS location and profile information to university police. 

    Students can download the TapShield app by searching for "TapShield" in the App Store or Google Play.
