Lone Carer Protect – Help
Lone Carer Protect is the worlds simplest and easiest Lone Carer safety application available. However, there are a few points to note.
- GPS LOCATION
If GPS location is not available, then Lone Carer Protect will send the last known location to the Emergency Contact. If there is no GPS location logged, then a location will not be sent.
- Locating via GPS is not available when inside.
- You must enable permissions on your smartwatch and phone to allow Lone Carer Protect to read and send GPS information.

- SMS AND EMAIL SENDING
- Lone Carer Protect cannot check if an SMS has been sent on your phone. If you are unsure if the alert has been sent, then please trigger the alert again.
- If Lone Carer Protect sends an email to your Emergency Contact it relies on the email address of the Emergency Contact being correct and able to receive email.
- EMERGENCY CONTACTS
At the moment, the number of Emergency Contacts is limited to ONE. This will be expanded over the coming weeks.
- WATCHFACE In order for Lone Carer Protect to function, the Lone Carer Protect Watchface must be installed and active. When you install Lone Carer Protect for the first time, a notification will show on your Wear OS watch prompting an install. You must do this to receive the full benefit of the application.
