About the App
I am worried my alarm will activate when it shouldn’t!
We have carefully measured the qualities that define a true panic scream. Just as we can differentiate between a joyous scream and a panic scream our app can also distinguish a true panic scream from other screams and sounds. However, if the alarm does mistakenly activate, you have 20 seconds to cancel the alarm before your contacts are notified. A push notification and siren will alert you that the alarm has gone off. Please log into your phone and cancel the alarm in the One Scream app.
What should I expect if the alarm is activated?
The phone will vibrate, you will hear a loud siren, and the lights of your phone will flash. You have 20 seconds to go into the app and cancel the alarm before your contacts are notified.
How can I stop the alert if I am not able to cancel within the 20 seconds?
If an alert has been sent to your contacts, it is crucial to stay on the line and confirm your false alarm.
