Intuitive and easy

Let Yank™ run in the background while you listen to your favorite music app. Simply yank the headphones out of your phone if you encounter a problem and let the app do the rest.


Text Alerts

And email notifications

Set up to three emergence contacts. Yanking the headphones starts an emergecy sequence during which your contacts receive text and/or email alerts notifying them that there may be an issue.



Send your GPS location

Each notification sent automatically contains an embedded link to a mapped GPS location letting up to three of your emergency contacts know your exact location where the incident occured.

A great app to give me a little more peace of mind.

I love the simplicity. It's the perfect app!
