React Mobile Co-Founder, Robb Monkman, was inspired to create the mobile safety application after being held at gunpoint during a home invasion while in college several years ago. Wanting to do more for on and off campus safety he created a tool that could be used to silently and discreetly alert a wide network, including the authorities, of an emergency and its location.
After testing several beta products in various markets for over a year, the React Mobile safety app was finally launched in March 2013.
React Mobile recently introduced a new custom branding service that allows organizations to have their very own branded security app to share with their members.
