New Version Of bSafe App Makes It A ‘Closed Personal Safety Network’

bSafe, the personal safety app, has a new version out which radically overhauls the app and makes it more like a closed social network with a heavy emphasis on personal safety. It’s also available as a upgrade on the existing iOS/Android app. Nicklas Jonsson – former Head of Global Partnerships in HTC – has joined bSafe as CEO, with founder Silje Vallestad stepping back in December to be Chief Safety Officer. bSafe has $4.21 million in funding, and includes Actress Jada Pinkett Smith as an investor. Competitors to the app include PanicGuard.
