There's been a lot of change to You ID Me over the kast 12 months with the introduction of a new dashboard for customers with lots more functionality. Walkalone safety tool has been rolled out and we're now looking at development for 2024.
Safety and security has been stepped up with one time passcodes being made mandatory alongside many other security features.
The website has been refreshed and this work continues into 2024.
One thing we'd really like to include in the coming year is the ability for alerts to be sent by WhatsApp. Our dev team are looking into this and we'll report back at some point soon.
Keep your eye on your mailbox for updates throughout 2024.

True story. Bunny the Sheep was inspired by a call from a farmer who asked if You ID Me could help with sheep that ocassionally go missing. We think he'd been searching for sol-ewe-tions online and had inadvertantly found You ID Me.
So we've turned the chuckle into I suppose a little mascot that we hope will become popular as a light-hearted bit of fun.

Walkalone lets your contacts know you're in danger, you're scared or you don't feel safe and it provides your location.
Walkalone is a unique personal safety service provided by You ID Me Platinum.
Walkalone puts a simple yet powerful emergency alert button in the centre of your phone screen to use if ever you're in danger, scared or need urgent help.
The button triggers alerts to your registered emergency contacts and shows them your location using Google Maps.
Walkalone can be used by anyone that carries a phone. It's designed in case they:
Who is Walkalone for?
The Walkalone personal safety tool is for anyone that carries a mobile phone; women and girls, men and boys, of any age. The original idea for Walkalone was for the creation of a tool to help keep lone females safe. It was triggered by the horrific abduction and murder case of Sarah Everard in March 2021 by off duty Met Police Officer Wayne Couzins - interest and use of Walkalone is divided across gender and all ages, highlighting the need for a personal safety alert tool.
How does Walkalone work?
Is Walkalone accurate?
Does Walkalone work everywhere?
Testing has been carried out across the UK. Due to SMS restrictions in other parts of the world it's strongly advised to that users check first to see if your / your emergency contacts' mobile phones have been registered in any country outside of the UK.
It's imperative that users test the Walkalone tool as soon as it is made live on your profile to satisfy yourself that the service works with your mobile network and the mobile network of your emergency contacts.
What is the cost of Walkalone?
Walkalone is included with non-duiscounted Platinum Plan memberships when paid by monthly or annual direct debit.
Until December 2022, existing Platinum Plan members can add Walkalone to their plan at the discounted price of £23.88/year.

Throughout the many conversations that we've had with 1000's of customers, the throny issue of life assurance for people with medical conditions often crops up.
A chance conversation and Zoom meeting with a London based tech start-up in the life assurance arena got us thinking even harder about our members' needs in this regard.
The new company will specialise in providing fast, economical life assurance quotes for people with type 2 diabetes. Though they're not quite up and running their specialist type two diabetic life assurance algorithm looks set to be offer substantial benefits to people living with type two diabetes that are looking for life assurance cover.
But it's not just diabetics that struggle to get reasonable quotes for life assurance cover. You ID Me is used by people with almost every medical condition that you can think of and of course multiple medical conditions.
Many of you have put off the idea of life assurance due to historic high quotes on premiums, point-blank refusals or hearsay; those water cooler type conversations that would have you think that life assurance is a waste of time pursuing.
Well think again. The future is bright.
We've teamed up with a preferred expert in life assurance for people with medical conditions that actively and independently search the entire UK field to source the very best fit for your personal circumstances.
Their aim is to serve you by securing quick and plain English decisions back without the pain of ridiculous quotes or long waits for a decision. Sound good? Hold on there's more!
Life assurance policies often come with a raft of other benefits that can be used throughout the life of the policy. For example: -
Additionally, for every successful life assurance plan taken out through our preferred supplier referral scheme we'll put you on our safest ID plan - Platinum with Alerts - free for life, saving you £59.88 a year. A significant benefit in itself meaning in the event of an emergency your contacts phone will be alerted to let them know you have a problem.
So if you don't currently have life assurance, perhaps because of a previous high quote or even a refusal, you and your family are missing out on a nice range of benefits and ultimately peace of mind.
Let us help you find the perfect policy for you by referring your interest through to our preferred professionals.
They will use their knowledge and expertise to scour the UK market - leaving no stone left unturned - to find the best possible solution to your individual needs.
I'm excited to announce that we've instructed our developers to move forward with Walkalone v1.0. It's a new service that will help protect women, and men, and children that become vulnerable whilst alone without support.
The development of the application has been catalyzed by the recent tragic case of Sarah Everard who was abducted and murdered by off-duty police officer Wayne Couzens, whilst she was walking home alone.
The service will allow users to 'arm' their mobile device and hit a button to discreetly send emergency alerts to selected contacts to let them know they're in danger, feel scared or unsafe. Importantly alerts will carry location data taken at the precise moment alerts are triggered.
Men are almost always the perpetrators in attacks on women. The statistics on attacks against women in the UK are appalling. Three women are killed by men in the UK every week.
In the year that ended March '20, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) calculated that some 4.9 million women had been victims of a sexual assault. This figure included around 1.4 million who had been raped or had faced an attempted rape. In total, 98.5% of the rapists were identified as men.
It's my firm belief that we shouldn't need to be providing women with tools or 'advice' to deal with the mistreatment, behavior and attacks that they encounter from men; the change should come from the men.
However until such a dramatic shift in the conscience and behavior of perpetrators takes place I think we should do whatever is necessary to protect the lives and health of potential victims.
Walkalone is just one small way that could help and , just like I said some years ago when I created You ID Me for my then twenty-two year old daughter,,, if it helps save the life of just one person that that will be worth all the effort.
Initially the service will be trialed by existing users of the You ID Me emergency ID and alert service.

You can now email a copy of your emergency ID profile from your You ID Me dashboard.
You can use this handy new function now to email a copy of your emergency ID profile to anyone you choose, such as your GP, specialist, consultant or even your emergency contacts, so that they have sight of what you have included in your profile.
