Description
Safr is a new ridesharing service focused on the safety and empowerment of women. Build with the needs of women in mind, we aim to improve lives through safe transportation, job creation, and financial security. We offer a premium rideshare service for getting around town, to the office and home with advanced security features that keep our riders safe including: · In-person interviews · Rigorous background checks · Dual rider-driver color matching feature that ensures you get into the right vehicle · SOS button if something goes wrong during your ride · Command center built into the app in case of an emergency · Advanced driver safety training Our drivers are personally vetted and undergo comprehensive background checks in criminal and motor vehicle history, and our in-ride security features make sure you arrive at your destination safely. Drivers are paid more than the industry standard and are incentivized to provide best-in-class service. When you choose to ride with Safr you’re supporting a like-minded driver and elevating your community by helping to improve greater gender balance, choice, and participation in the sharing economy. Visit https://www.gosafr.com for more information Interested in driving for Safr? Download our "Drive Safr" app to get started! For help, email us at help@gosafr.com Disclaimer: ride safr uses location in background while using the app and during ride, can dramatically affect battery life.
Awesome idea!
by Dinara_L on 2020/02/29 02:23
I have been saying FOREVER that I need a ride share app where I can request only female drivers. I have had wayyyy too many negative experiences with creepy old men hitting on me, asking for my number, inquiring about my relationship status, and so much more. I am just about done with Lyft and Uber. Unfortunately, Safr is not available in MD yet. But you still get 5 stars because y’all all awesome, and I can’t wait to see you in my area soon :)
Don’t be fooled
by kmjmgee on 2020/02/27 00:24
What a joke! You sign up enter credit card info. Verify account and phone number. The. You book a ride like uber or Lyft.....and the driver never arrives! I think it’s only Boston but they never tell you that. Very dishonest
Can't change your phone number
by Don The Artist on 2020/01/23 12:06
Can't edit or change your phone number or email address which is stupid. So I have to get a new phone I have to create a new account just for that number & create a new email address just specifically for your app. Which is nonsensical. Also it's not available in New Jersey. But overall I like the idea of the app but it’s not in my area of New York City/NJ. Especially after my girlfriend told me she doesn't like Uber or Lyft and would never take one because she doesn't trust the male drivers especially with all of the sexual harassment lawsuits happening in those companies.
Heads up - Focused on Boston!
by femmcascade on 2020/01/03 03:39
I’m giving this rating five stars like a previous reviewer since many negative reviews are based on it not being in their city rather than actual operational status. It was easy for me to make an account and register, love the convenience of a safer cab app option! Please be aware however, that this company is currently focused on Boston and is in the works of expanding to other cities.
It just. Doesn't work. At all.
by atran2468 on 2019/12/26 01:54
I signed up. Fine. I put in all my info. Fine. I try to input a destination and it just loads and loads and loads. I deactivate my account to try to reopen it in hopes it'll work. I have to email to get it reactivated. Basically, it doesn't work.
Women drivers
by falisha537 on 2019/12/05 16:49
The whole reason I wanted to try this app was because I wanted to be able to select a women driver for my safety and it won’t allow me to do that I keep getting an error when trying to select my preference. Very disappointed!
Pointless
by savg19 on 2019/11/27 15:52
I was excited to download this app since I live in a large city and have had bad experiences with our public transportation in the past. However, there’s no way to tell if their services are available in your city until after you create an account, enter your payment information, and search your destination. It’s a waste of time. I’d like to know where this app actually DOES work because it’s not available in Minneapolis (a top 15 market) or my home city of Chicago (the 3rd largest market in the US). App is pointless until they actually get drivers. Don’t waste your time. Just use Lyft.
Great idea but the app needs to be improved
by auvyl on 2019/11/16 13:17
I can’t even completely register myself because it won’t send me a text to confirm my cell no matter how many times I press it.
Not Loading
by Cecelia37 on 2019/11/14 11:56
I would have loved if the app actually worked. it’s an amazing idea but I had a really hard time trying to get a ride that I eventually just gave up and deleted the app.
The most innovative, SAFE way for women to get around
by SABESQ2019 on 2019/10/04 20:12
Being able to choose my driver and know that they passed a background check, an interview and so did their vehicle is INVALUABLE! Safr all the way!
Awesome Company with a great Mission
by emilye2187 on 2019/10/02 17:10
I am super excited for this new concept of mostly women drivers with women riders. It’s also great that it is inclusive of men too, however they do an extensive background check for both men and women drivers. Also, they seem to do a check for the riders as well since in the news lately there’s riders that attack the drivers not just the drivers are at fault since it involves at least two people in the car! That’s a very good reason to do a background check on both parties in the car!! Awesome concept, great Mission and can’t wait for this to take off in Orlando as their second city thus far. It was started up in Boston by a concerned father with a daughter going to college soon. Since it is new and all I believe you got to give it time to iron out the kinks after all this a whole new ballgame and if you want to make the team you gotta try out!
No cars available in SF
by Epicurean explorer on 2019/09/30 02:26
I’ve given this app multiple tried but no cars are ever near me.
Why didn’t this exist before?
by tv10014 on 2019/09/29 20:46
This service is essential and sooo desperately needed in a lot of markets. Great service, amazing application and idea, right focus on specific markets, and serving with honor! Piece of mind for myself and piece of mind when my elderly mother rides with it as well. ... And I hope it will expand on other markets soon!!
Great idea, but horrible execution
by sffi neu k on 2019/09/28 21:12
Great idea, but the app never works and I had a lot of problems trying to set up an account as a passenger and a driver. Sade’s customer service took months to get back to me and I still can’t use their business.
Amazing idea!
by WinsonI on 2019/09/27 03:58
The concept is amazing and the app is very seamless. I am all for women empowerment and am grateful that they finally have a platform.
Great app especially for working women
by S G Eagle on 2019/09/27 01:56
I don’t know why no one thought of this before. Working women can greatly benefit from it.
Can’t wait!
by IKristinac on 2019/09/27 01:44
So excited to see this company expanding its services to new cities, planning on using it once it launches in Orlando
Disappointing
by hellohellohellohellobye on 2019/09/07 06:16
I was out at night and was leaving a club alone, and the last thing I wanted was to drive a long distance with a male uber driver (have had really bad experiences in the past and at this hour only men were available). So I downloaded this app, and finally got an account set up. I requested my ride (11:30 pm in Hollywood) and no drivers were available. I kept trying for 15 minutes or so and still there were no available drivers. This app is a great idea, but it is nowhere near equipped to boast a fully functional, reliable application for women to feel safe.
Get it together!
by suel cross on 2019/09/01 03:58
I LOVE the idea of this app! I tried to download it for my daughter. It didn’t work! She was going out tonight IN BOSTON and we were not able to arrange a ride. After reading all of the reviews of people struggling to sign up I was so surprised that this was still an issue. Okay people, great idea, is this a QA issue or are you having technical issues? This was a very disappointing experience, please explain what the problem is and WHEN IT WILL BE RESOLVED.
No drivers.
by FourstarReviewer on 2019/08/08 03:52
No drivers ? That is kind of annoying.
Not available in my area
by Meepmeeproadrunner on 2019/07/17 21:27
I'm giving this 5 stars because its a wonderful idea and I'd love it to continue to be executed. And there's a swarm of 1 stars because its not available in their area. And that is keeping the overall rating real wonky. Its an easy to navigate app and I really wish I could use it where I live.
Only available in Boston
by Kokoj98 on 2019/05/31 03:15
Rlly wish i had known that before signing up. Easy to deactivate though. Really disappointed as im terrified to use Uber or Lyft, and this really would have helped my fears. Thanks though.
Is it still active?
by asw96 on 2019/02/21 23:00
Really love this app compared to lyft and Uber but for the past few months I haven’t been able to find a driver ???
When are you becoming available in Grand Rapids Michigan?
by Thesebastardsstolemy money on 2019/02/07 07:48
I downloaded it and it made me put in my cc info first then told me it’s not available in my area. Why not and when will it be? Thanks I would change my rating to a 5 if you were available in my area.
Not safer in my city
by Everydamnnicknamewastaken on 2018/12/21 03:24
How are they not operating in SF??
They ask for credit card before they tell you they don't operate in your city
by cnycz on 2018/12/13 04:32
I'm so bummed they don't operate in Los Angeles. And equally bummed this info was not disclosed until I did the whole sign up process.
wanted this so bad- but can’t use it
by Supermanwich23 on 2018/10/22 20:48
The app interface neglected to tell me they don’t operate in my city- but not til after i’d already entered my credit card info. Maybe put a message earlier about that? Just a thought.
Not available in Seattle???
by Wimsicat on 2018/10/19 08:45
One of the most dangerous places to travel alone for a woman and you guys have no coverage here. K thanks.
Not available in my city. Trying to get a safe ride for my daughter and her friend
by twodozen24 on 2018/10/08 05:42
BS
no mobile payment option
by By Karen on 2018/10/01 20:52
Safr doesn’t allow riders to pay for rides via Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, Google Pay, etc. Will not use this ridesharing service until Safr does.
HORRIBLE
by 818mrsp on 2018/09/13 22:57
Horrible app! Can’t get passed the upload picture screen! If I could give this 0 stars I would. There is such a need for this service however this app is non-functioning. I will be deleting ASAP
Great idea. Bad app.
by Il Moro di Venezia on 2018/08/30 02:58
Like other reviewer’s I have had no luck being able to set up an account with the app. That does not bode well for the experience when I am trying to use the app to hail a driver. Not sure why it’s so difficult, but the app tells me that it can’t set up an account because the data is in the wrong format (whatever that means).
Awesome company
by Ginatae on 2018/08/28 23:30
A great opportunity for females to drive and feel safe! The app is unique and user friendly
I love the idea but
by MegAnd333333333333 on 2018/08/27 19:36
It was way to easy to make a profile. There needs to be any sort of verification process to prove that people are who they claim to be, or else it’s just like all the others.
Woohoo!
by Bellaru43 on 2018/08/13 17:18
Love it! Love it!!! Did I say I just simply love this app!
Much needed!
by mom8890 on 2018/08/13 16:53
I would never ride with Uber or Lyft. It’s just not safe. Women driving women is needed to make sure women like me can easily and fearlessly travel anytime of the day. Safr can be the answer to so many prayers.
Great App!!
by Aprilskies2018 on 2018/08/13 16:46
Much needed for women due to constant threat of harassment. Good job and good luck
Wanted to use
by Pirates for eva on 2018/08/08 01:21
I’m moving to the city and will definitely need a service like this to ease my mind and my parents’ minds but I can’t even sign up for an account. It seems as though other people have also had problems with the app as well. I would really like if it worked, but I don’t have a Facebook which is the only other signup option so it looks like I won’t be able to use it. Hope it gets fixed soon!
Nice
by Saddi28 on 2018/08/03 10:56
Easy interface and safe to use
Best Traveling
by Jimmy2803 on 2018/08/02 15:45
Nice and easy to use for riding.
Nice
by Steve-04 on 2018/08/02 06:33
Easy to use and awesome app
Superb idea
by zulu jhon on 2018/07/31 18:34
I am really happy to use this application. Nice concept. Pretty secure and safe platform for traveling within city.
very difficult to deal with
by LikeTwoShips on 2017/12/23 02:02
Awesome idea, I'll say that. But the app itself has been nothing but difficult to deal with. First it glitched out several times when I was trying to make an account, which was frustrating. Then once I finally registered, it wouldn't accept my card info. I tried both credit and debit cards but I got an error at the top that just said (null). Tried quitting the app, deleting and redownloading, and nothing works. Needless to say I can't/won't be using this...if it updates or I try again in a few months and I don't have this problem, I'll edit this review, but for now, it's a no.
Couldn't Sign Up
by BadgerGirl77 on 2017/08/18 21:55
I would love to use this app, but after attempting to sign up with my Google Account and then again manually, the application would not let me create an account. Please fix this issue in the next release!
excellent idea, horrible execution
by MelroseGG17 on 2017/08/03 14:32
I love the idea of Safr and was so excited to start using it. However, the app is so awful. I've only managed to use it 3 times. Now every time I look for a ride it times out and/or says my last ride (2 months ago) is still pending - not only did I get a receipt from that ride but there is no way to get more information. I emailed support three times over a month before finally getting a response that they could try the payment again (and didn't reference the credit that I had). So frustrated and giving up the app.
So awful
by Juggehybergdcbjkkorwacvnmkigec on 2017/07/15 17:48
I managed to use the app once. Out if the 4-5 times I've emailed customer service because of an issue related to using the app (i.e. not being able to), they only responded once, when they had to get money from a payment that didn't go through. And even though they charged me, I still can't request a ride because the app believes the payment hasn't gone through. How did you launch this product in this state???
Glad to have this service!
by MollyMoo1372 on 2017/06/19 14:04
Safr is my first choice for rides. Every driver I've ridden with has been friendly and professional. I look forward to seeing Safr expand in the future.
Great App but no Service
by TwixLove on 2017/06/15 22:08
I love the concept but so far I've only been able to take two rides (same driver), there seems to be a shortage of drivers everytime I request a ride I get the same error about no drivers
Superrb!
by Bilawal Baig on 2017/06/14 22:32
Superb app! Driver was so professional, it was a real secure ride i just had! Will ride again over any other service anytime
Only option for safety-conscious women.
by Marketing Mench on 2017/06/14 15:39
Finally a company that gets the very real dangers of women who use ride-hailing services. I feel so much better having a woman driver. Wait times can be long but seems like they are growing fast. Some tech glitches, but the app is vastly improved since they launched. Seems like they fix things quickly. I love the safety features and the drivers are incredibly nice. When they get bigger I'll only take Safr. Definitely download this ladies!
Finally a rideshare I can trust
by MomBoss2015 on 2017/06/14 15:34
I rely on Ubers so much, but all the news has been making me wary. A driver told me they personally interview everyone who drives for Safr - I LOVE that! The fact that they care about women's empowerment is the cherry on the top. Wait times may be longer than Uber, but you can't put a wait time (or price) on safety and I'm def willing to wait for something I believe in. This is so necessary.
WOW
by Bunnysparkle123 on 2017/06/14 15:02
What an amazing & needed concept! Super easy app, looking forward to it improving even more! Seems like developers are on fixes pretty fast and really into getting this stream lined !
Great app for safety conscious!
by san bostino on 2017/06/13 01:11
Took a ride and loved it! Great features. Wish them best of luck!
Great idea, understaffed perhaps?
by Gale583 on 2017/05/25 20:02
From all I can tell this company is understaffed, which is a real shame. I love the idea, but so far I have not been able to use this service. First I had an issue with my account. Emails I sent to "info" weren't responded to (and there is no customer service phone number or email address). Finally I tried Facebook and got a very prompt and helpful response. The issue was taken care of immediately. Now my account is functional, the few times I've tried to hail a ride I get an error that no drives are in my area. I found a news article that says they're only picking up in Boston, Brookline, and Cambridge, so perhaps I'm just too close to the border of Cambridge to get a pickup? Or I'm more worried they simply don't have enough drivers yet. I'll keep trying Safr first when I hail a ride for the foreseeable future, but it saddens me that they can't seem to get enough drivers and/or customers to be a reliable rideshare option.
Requires personal info before saying doesn't serve my city
by Ccb223 on 2017/05/23 11:02
I was in a tight spot and needed to feel safe and get a ride ... uber wasn't doing that for me. I downloaded this app, put all my personal info in INCLUDING MY CREDIT CARD, only for it to tell me it doesn't serve my city when I finally was able to request a ride. Now it won't let me delete my credit card information.
Sign up fixed
by cbstrange on 2017/05/12 16:43
UPDATE signup fixed. Works like a charm! Now to order my first ride. More updates after. FIRST REVIEW Glitches in sign up when trying to sign up either through Facebook or on my own. Can't make an account.
Great app
by The Doctor31415 on 2017/05/11 23:29
Great app. Just wish it was available more places.
What an update!!
by RabzMann on 2017/05/08 18:57
Makes the app worthless. Thanks a lot!!! App opens and closes out immediately.
Useless
by bostonet on 2017/05/03 03:16
Have yet to be able to use this and I am in Boston- a major city with advertisements for this. Like they give promo codes that expire before I will ever be able to find a driver. Probably will delete.
Finally!
by Turtlez_rawck on 2017/04/30 02:09
A ridesharing app for white people by white people! I am always scared that one of my black Uber drivers will assault me, since they're so prone to crime! This solves that issue. Now replace "white people" with "women" and "black people" with "men." This is the insane argument that this app makes.
Great Idea! I luv it! Can't wait for it to launch !
by Donodree on 2017/04/15 03:15
For a man To knock this effort is a blatant denial that women are sexually harassed and vetted on a daily basis . Mr. Man, do you fear entering a vehicle with a strange woman? Currently any given driver for any given company can secretly discriminate for all we know. They could choose riders with only 5 stars, see a photo and refuse to accept the job, or avoid driving in a particular area. Safr is simply offering a unique alternative beneficial to driver and rider alike. There was a time when Women were supported and protected. Now we have to compete with whiny men who refuse to see the forest for the trees. There are women sports teams just for women and men sports teams just for men. Why do you think that is??? And why is that ok??? Oh yeah, the App is great! Be Safr!
Would like to use it
by Harvette on 2017/04/12 22:26
I am not going to enable background app refresh. I don't see any reason a ride-share all should require it. The alert that goes off every 45 seconds to notify that I won't be able to receive background notifications is annoying and confusing. No other app requires this. If this is ever resolved I'll check it out again.
Not going to change my settings
by msbanasik on 2017/04/07 23:48
Just because one app (safr) makes it annoying to continue without background app refresh I'll just wait to use the app until you decide to disable the pop up appearing every 45 seconds But other than that, cool concept!
Doesn't work
by Leromano11 on 2017/04/03 11:59
Can't even create an account. Loads for 10+ minutes and then tells me an unknown error occurred.
Fantastic!
by missnettexx on 2017/03/07 13:05
An incredible company with empowerment at its forefront. I will choose Safr over any other ride sharing app and really hope they take off! 💪
Sexist app
by ChannelJuanNews on 2017/03/06 00:53
This app is horrible. I can't even use it. The UI is slick (i gotta give the developers props). But this app is still sexist. As a feminist I am deeply offended by these so called "egalitarians" who are blatantly sexist.
When I open the app it takes me to a page that forces me to invite friends
by Rachpg on 2017/03/05 16:13
Won't let me use the app, keeps taking me to page to invite friends. I have invited one friend hoping that would unlock the app but it must be frozen I can't find any place to contact them so SAFR if you read this please help me
Forces updates or doesn't work
by Christi Christi Christi on 2017/03/01 18:20
I went through the process of setting up an account which includes entering and verifying personal information, adding a photo, and credit card info. When I open the app, my only option presented is to invite friends. Either the app is non-functional or it forces you to invite people without ever using it, which I refuse to do. I still do not know if the service is available in my area.
Invite friends
by Ms. hungry on 2017/02/16 13:54
App will not allow me to request a ride before I invite my friend which requires access to my contacts. This is intrusive and not the best way to start a business. I would never refer a friend without trying the product first. Bad call.
could use some work
by Clauclauclaudia on 2017/02/16 03:38
If you want me to upload a photo, then don't stick me in "Moments". Who keeps their selfies by date? Send me to Albums. That's what the driver app does. Haven't gotten through the profile dialog so can't review anything else.
Nice experience
by Abby557 on 2017/02/01 08:09
Ah at last I unlocked the app! it has great interface and security features! I had to invite 10 people to signup and enter my referral code for app to unlock!
Problem
by xtotes on 2017/01/29 20:50
I absolutely love the idea of this app, it's really comforting to think that I could be safe riding around the city. However, both me and my best friend downloaded the app, set up our profiles and input our payment information, only to not be able to get past the 'share this with your friends!' Page. No matter how many times you share the app it won't let you get past that page for either of us. It seems the developers have some more work to do to get the app working properly, and I look forward to the day I can drive in the city at ease.
I really wanted this to work!
by Moonmommy#1 on 2017/01/29 15:44
I've downloaded the app, registered and entered a credit card, and even invited friends. But the promotional offer to share with friends will not go away and therefore I cannot request a ride. Or even confirm that this service is available in my area. So frustrating!

Can't change your phone number
by Don The Artist on 2020/01/23 12:06
Can't edit or change your phone number or email address which is stupid. So I have to get a new phone I have to create a new account just for that number & create a new email address just specifically for your app. Which is nonsensical. Also it's not available in New Jersey. But overall I like the idea of the app but it’s not in my area of New York City/NJ. Especially after my girlfriend told me she doesn't like Uber or Lyft and would never take one because she doesn't trust the male drivers especially with all of the sexual harassment lawsuits happening in those companies.
Heads up - Focused on Boston!
by femmcascade on 2020/01/03 03:39
I’m giving this rating five stars like a previous reviewer since many negative reviews are based on it not being in their city rather than actual operational status. It was easy for me to make an account and register, love the convenience of a safer cab app option! Please be aware however, that this company is currently focused on Boston and is in the works of expanding to other cities.

by hellohellohellohellobye on 2019/09/07 06:16
I was out at night and was leaving a club alone, and the last thing I wanted was to drive a long distance with a male uber driver (have had really bad experiences in the past and at this hour only men were available). So I downloaded this app, and finally got an account set up. I requested my ride (11:30 pm in Hollywood) and no drivers were available. I kept trying for 15 minutes or so and still there were no available drivers. This app is a great idea, but it is nowhere near equipped to boast a fully functional, reliable application for women to feel safe.
Not available in my area
by Meepmeeproadrunner on 2019/07/17 21:27
I'm giving this 5 stars because its a wonderful idea and I'd love it to continue to be executed. And there's a swarm of 1 stars because its not available in their area. And that is keeping the overall rating real wonky. Its an easy to navigate app and I really wish I could use it where I live.
Why didn’t this exist before?
by tv10014 on 2019/09/29 20:46
This service is essential and sooo desperately needed in a lot of markets. Great service, amazing application and idea, right focus on specific markets, and serving with honor! Piece of mind for myself and piece of mind when my elderly mother rides with it as well. ... And I hope it will expand on other markets soon!!
Get it together!
by suel cross on 2019/09/01 03:58
I LOVE the idea of this app! I tried to download it for my daughter. It didn’t work! She was going out tonight IN BOSTON and we were not able to arrange a ride. After reading all of the reviews of people struggling to sign up I was so surprised that this was still an issue. Okay people, great idea, is this a QA issue or are you having technical issues? This was a very disappointing experience, please explain what the problem is and WHEN IT WILL BE RESOLVED.
Wanted to use
by Pirates for eva on 2018/08/08 01:21
I’m moving to the city and will definitely need a service like this to ease my mind and my parents’ minds but I can’t even sign up for an account. It seems as though other people have also had problems with the app as well. I would really like if it worked, but I don’t have a Facebook which is the only other signup option so it looks like I won’t be able to use it. Hope it gets fixed soon!
The most innovative, SAFE way for women to get around
by SABESQ2019 on 2019/10/04 20:12
Being able to choose my driver and know that they passed a background check, an interview and so did their vehicle is INVALUABLE! Safr all the way!
Much needed!
by mom8890 on 2018/08/13 16:53
I would never ride with Uber or Lyft. It’s just not safe. Women driving women is needed to make sure women like me can easily and fearlessly travel anytime of the day. Safr can be the answer to so many prayers.
I love the idea but
by MegAnd333333333333 on 2018/08/27 19:36
It was way to easy to make a profile. There needs to be any sort of verification process to prove that people are who they claim to be, or else it’s just like all the others.
Great idea. Bad app.
by Il Moro di Venezia on 2018/08/30 02:58
Like other reviewer’s I have had no luck being able to set up an account with the app. That does not bode well for the experience when I am trying to use the app to hail a driver. Not sure why it’s so difficult, but the app tells me that it can’t set up an account because the data is in the wrong format (whatever that means).
Great app especially for working women

The whole reason I wanted to try this app was because I wanted to be able to select a women driver for my safety and it won’t allow me to do that I keep getting an error when trying to select my preference. Very disappointed!
Is it still active?

Only available in Boston

Great Idea! I luv it! Can't wait for it to launch !
by Donodree on 2017/04/15 03:15
For a man To knock this effort is a blatant denial that women are sexually harassed and vetted on a daily basis . Mr. Man, do you fear entering a vehicle with a strange woman? Currently any given driver for any given company can secretly discriminate for all we know. They could choose riders with only 5 stars, see a photo and refuse to accept the job, or avoid driving in a particular area. Safr is simply offering a unique alternative beneficial to driver and rider alike. There was a time when Women were supported and protected. Now we have to compete with whiny men who refuse to see the forest for the trees. There are women sports teams just for women and men sports teams just for men. Why do you think that is??? And why is that ok??? Oh yeah, the App is great! Be Safr!
Great idea, understaffed perhaps?
by Gale583 on 2017/05/25 20:02
From all I can tell this company is understaffed, which is a real shame. I love the idea, but so far I have not been able to use this service. First I had an issue with my account. Emails I sent to "info" weren't responded to (and there is no customer service phone number or email address). Finally I tried Facebook and got a very prompt and helpful response. The issue was taken care of immediately. Now my account is functional, the few times I've tried to hail a ride I get an error that no drives are in my area. I found a news article that says they're only picking up in Boston, Brookline, and Cambridge, so perhaps I'm just too close to the border of Cambridge to get a pickup? Or I'm more worried they simply don't have enough drivers yet. I'll keep trying Safr first when I hail a ride for the foreseeable future, but it saddens me that they can't seem to get enough drivers and/or customers to be a reliable rideshare option.
Only option for safety-conscious women.
by Marketing Mench on 2017/06/14 15:39
Finally a company that gets the very real dangers of women who use ride-hailing services. I feel so much better having a woman driver. Wait times can be long but seems like they are growing fast. Some tech glitches, but the app is vastly improved since they launched. Seems like they fix things quickly. I love the safety features and the drivers are incredibly nice. When they get bigger I'll only take Safr. Definitely download this ladies!
Finally a rideshare I can trust
by MomBoss2015 on 2017/06/14 15:34
I rely on Ubers so much, but all the news has been making me wary. A driver told me they personally interview everyone who drives for Safr - I LOVE that! The fact that they care about women's empowerment is the cherry on the top. Wait times may be longer than Uber, but you can't put a wait time (or price) on safety and I'm def willing to wait for something I believe in. This is so necessary.
excellent idea, horrible execution
by MelroseGG17 on 2017/08/03 14:32
I love the idea of Safr and was so excited to start using it. However, the app is so awful. I've only managed to use it 3 times. Now every time I look for a ride it times out and/or says my last ride (2 months ago) is still pending - not only did I get a receipt from that ride but there is no way to get more information. I emailed support three times over a month before finally getting a response that they could try the payment again (and didn't reference the credit that I had). So frustrated and giving up the app.
Problem
by xtotes on 2017/01/29 20:50
I absolutely love the idea of this app, it's really comforting to think that I could be safe riding around the city. However, both me and my best friend downloaded the app, set up our profiles and input our payment information, only to not be able to get past the 'share this with your friends!' Page. No matter how many times you share the app it won't let you get past that page for either of us. It seems the developers have some more work to do to get the app working properly, and I look forward to the day I can drive in the city at ease.
Not going to change my settings
by msbanasik on 2017/04/07 23:48
Just because one app (safr) makes it annoying to continue without background app refresh I'll just wait to use the app until you decide to disable the pop up appearing every 45 seconds But other than that, cool concept!

Description
Safr is a new ridesharing service focused on the safety and empowerment of women. Build with the needs of women in mind, we aim to improve lives through safe transportation, job creation, and financial security. We offer a premium rideshare service for getting around town, to the office and home with advanced security features that keep our riders safe including: · In-person interviews · Rigorous background checks · Dual rider-driver color matching feature that ensures you get into the right vehicle · SOS button if something goes wrong during your ride · Command center built into the app in case of an emergency · Advanced driver safety training Our drivers are personally vetted and undergo comprehensive background checks in criminal and motor vehicle history, and our in-ride security features make sure you arrive at your destination safely. Drivers are paid more than the industry standard and are incentivized to provide best-in-class service. When you choose to ride with Safr you’re supporting a like-minded driver and elevating your community by helping to improve greater gender balance, choice, and participation in the sharing economy. Visit https://www.gosafr.com for more information Interested in driving for Safr? Download our "Drive Safr" app to get started! For help, email us at help@gosafr.com Disclaimer: ride safr uses location in background while using the app and during ride, can dramatically affect battery life.
Awesome idea!
by Dinara_L on 2020/02/29 02:23
I have been saying FOREVER that I need a ride share app where I can request only female drivers. I have had wayyyy too many negative experiences with creepy old men hitting on me, asking for my number, inquiring about my relationship status, and so much more. I am just about done with Lyft and Uber. Unfortunately, Safr is not available in MD yet. But you still get 5 stars because y’all all awesome, and I can’t wait to see you in my area soon :)

Can't change your phone number
by Don The Artist on 2020/01/23 12:06
Can't edit or change your phone number or email address which is stupid. So I have to get a new phone I have to create a new account just for that number & create a new email address just specifically for your app. Which is nonsensical. Also it's not available in New Jersey. But overall I like the idea of the app but it’s not in my area of New York City/NJ. Especially after my girlfriend told me she doesn't like Uber or Lyft and would never take one because she doesn't trust the male drivers especially with all of the sexual harassment lawsuits happening in those companies.
Heads up - Focused on Boston!
by femmcascade on 2020/01/03 03:39
I’m giving this rating five stars like a previous reviewer since many negative reviews are based on it not being in their city rather than actual operational status. It was easy for me to make an account and register, love the convenience of a safer cab app option! Please be aware however, that this company is currently focused on Boston and is in the works of expanding to other cities.
It just. Doesn't work. At all.

Pointless
by savg19 on 2019/11/27 15:52
I was excited to download this app since I live in a large city and have had bad experiences with our public transportation in the past. However, there’s no way to tell if their services are available in your city until after you create an account, enter your payment information, and search your destination. It’s a waste of time. I’d like to know where this app actually DOES work because it’s not available in Minneapolis (a top 15 market) or my home city of Chicago (the 3rd largest market in the US). App is pointless until they actually get drivers. Don’t waste your time. Just use Lyft.
Great idea but the app needs to be improved

Awesome Company with a great Mission
by emilye2187 on 2019/10/02 17:10
I am super excited for this new concept of mostly women drivers with women riders. It’s also great that it is inclusive of men too, however they do an extensive background check for both men and women drivers. Also, they seem to do a check for the riders as well since in the news lately there’s riders that attack the drivers not just the drivers are at fault since it involves at least two people in the car! That’s a very good reason to do a background check on both parties in the car!! Awesome concept, great Mission and can’t wait for this to take off in Orlando as their second city thus far. It was started up in Boston by a concerned father with a daughter going to college soon. Since it is new and all I believe you got to give it time to iron out the kinks after all this a whole new ballgame and if you want to make the team you gotta try out!

I would never ride with Uber or Lyft. It’s just not safe. Women driving women is needed to make sure women like me can easily and fearlessly travel anytime of the day. Safr can be the answer to so many prayers.
Great App!!
by Aprilskies2018 on 2018/08/13 16:46
Much needed for women due to constant threat of harassment. Good job and good luck
Wanted to use
by Pirates for eva on 2018/08/08 01:21
I’m moving to the city and will definitely need a service like this to ease my mind and my parents’ minds but I can’t even sign up for an account. It seems as though other people have also had problems with the app as well. I would really like if it worked, but I don’t have a Facebook which is the only other signup option so it looks like I won’t be able to use it. Hope it gets fixed soon!
Nice
by Saddi28 on 2018/08/03 10:56
Easy interface and safe to use
Best Traveling
by Jimmy2803 on 2018/08/02 15:45
Nice and easy to use for riding.

by Steve-04 on 2018/08/02 06:33
Easy to use and awesome app
Superb idea
by zulu jhon on 2018/07/31 18:34
I am really happy to use this application. Nice concept. Pretty secure and safe platform for traveling within city.
very difficult to deal with
by LikeTwoShips on 2017/12/23 02:02
Awesome idea, I'll say that. But the app itself has been nothing but difficult to deal with. First it glitched out several times when I was trying to make an account, which was frustrating. Then once I finally registered, it wouldn't accept my card info. I tried both credit and debit cards but I got an error at the top that just said (null). Tried quitting the app, deleting and redownloading, and nothing works. Needless to say I can't/won't be using this...if it updates or I try again in a few months and I don't have this problem, I'll edit this review, but for now, it's a no.
Couldn't Sign Up
by BadgerGirl77 on 2017/08/18 21:55
I would love to use this app, but after attempting to sign up with my Google Account and then again manually, the application would not let me create an account. Please fix this issue in the next release!
excellent idea, horrible execution
by MelroseGG17 on 2017/08/03 14:32
I love the idea of Safr and was so excited to start using it. However, the app is so awful. I've only managed to use it 3 times. Now every time I look for a ride it times out and/or says my last ride (2 months ago) is still pending - not only did I get a receipt from that ride but there is no way to get more information. I emailed support three times over a month before finally getting a response that they could try the payment again (and didn't reference the credit that I had). So frustrated and giving up the app.
So awful
by Juggehybergdcbjkkorwacvnmkigec on 2017/07/15 17:48
I managed to use the app once. Out if the 4-5 times I've emailed customer service because of an issue related to using the app (i.e. not being able to), they only responded once, when they had to get money from a payment that didn't go through. And even though they charged me, I still can't request a ride because the app believes the payment hasn't gone through. How did you launch this product in this state???
Glad to have this service!
by MollyMoo1372 on 2017/06/19 14:04
Safr is my first choice for rides. Every driver I've ridden with has been friendly and professional. I look forward to seeing Safr expand in the future.
Great App but no Service
by TwixLove on 2017/06/15 22:08
I love the concept but so far I've only been able to take two rides (same driver), there seems to be a shortage of drivers everytime I request a ride I get the same error about no drivers
Superrb!
by Bilawal Baig on 2017/06/14 22:32
Superb app! Driver was so professional, it was a real secure ride i just had! Will ride again over any other service anytime
Only option for safety-conscious women.
by Marketing Mench on 2017/06/14 15:39
Finally a company that gets the very real dangers of women who use ride-hailing services. I feel so much better having a woman driver. Wait times can be long but seems like they are growing fast. Some tech glitches, but the app is vastly improved since they launched. Seems like they fix things quickly. I love the safety features and the drivers are incredibly nice. When they get bigger I'll only take Safr. Definitely download this ladies!
Finally a rideshare I can trust
by MomBoss2015 on 2017/06/14 15:34
I rely on Ubers so much, but all the news has been making me wary. A driver told me they personally interview everyone who drives for Safr - I LOVE that! The fact that they care about women's empowerment is the cherry on the top. Wait times may be longer than Uber, but you can't put a wait time (or price) on safety and I'm def willing to wait for something I believe in. This is so necessary.
WOW
by Bunnysparkle123 on 2017/06/14 15:02
What an amazing & needed concept! Super easy app, looking forward to it improving even more! Seems like developers are on fixes pretty fast and really into getting this stream lined !
Great app for safety conscious!
by san bostino on 2017/06/13 01:11
Took a ride and loved it! Great features. Wish them best of luck!
Great idea, understaffed perhaps?
by Gale583 on 2017/05/25 20:02
From all I can tell this company is understaffed, which is a real shame. I love the idea, but so far I have not been able to use this service. First I had an issue with my account. Emails I sent to "info" weren't responded to (and there is no customer service phone number or email address). Finally I tried Facebook and got a very prompt and helpful response. The issue was taken care of immediately. Now my account is functional, the few times I've tried to hail a ride I get an error that no drives are in my area. I found a news article that says they're only picking up in Boston, Brookline, and Cambridge, so perhaps I'm just too close to the border of Cambridge to get a pickup? Or I'm more worried they simply don't have enough drivers yet. I'll keep trying Safr first when I hail a ride for the foreseeable future, but it saddens me that they can't seem to get enough drivers and/or customers to be a reliable rideshare option.
Requires personal info before saying doesn't serve my city
by Ccb223 on 2017/05/23 11:02
I was in a tight spot and needed to feel safe and get a ride ... uber wasn't doing that for me. I downloaded this app, put all my personal info in INCLUDING MY CREDIT CARD, only for it to tell me it doesn't serve my city when I finally was able to request a ride. Now it won't let me delete my credit card information.
Sign up fixed
by cbstrange on 2017/05/12 16:43
UPDATE signup fixed. Works like a charm! Now to order my first ride. More updates after. FIRST REVIEW Glitches in sign up when trying to sign up either through Facebook or on my own. Can't make an account.
Great app
by The Doctor31415 on 2017/05/11 23:29
Great app. Just wish it was available more places.
What an update!!
by RabzMann on 2017/05/08 18:57
Makes the app worthless. Thanks a lot!!! App opens and closes out immediately.
Useless
by bostonet on 2017/05/03 03:16
Have yet to be able to use this and I am in Boston- a major city with advertisements for this. Like they give promo codes that expire before I will ever be able to find a driver. Probably will delete.
Finally!
by Turtlez_rawck on 2017/04/30 02:09
A ridesharing app for white people by white people! I am always scared that one of my black Uber drivers will assault me, since they're so prone to crime! This solves that issue. Now replace "white people" with "women" and "black people" with "men." This is the insane argument that this app makes.
Great Idea! I luv it! Can't wait for it to launch !
by Donodree on 2017/04/15 03:15
For a man To knock this effort is a blatant denial that women are sexually harassed and vetted on a daily basis . Mr. Man, do you fear entering a vehicle with a strange woman? Currently any given driver for any given company can secretly discriminate for all we know. They could choose riders with only 5 stars, see a photo and refuse to accept the job, or avoid driving in a particular area. Safr is simply offering a unique alternative beneficial to driver and rider alike. There was a time when Women were supported and protected. Now we have to compete with whiny men who refuse to see the forest for the trees. There are women sports teams just for women and men sports teams just for men. Why do you think that is??? And why is that ok??? Oh yeah, the App is great! Be Safr!
Would like to use it
by Harvette on 2017/04/12 22:26
I am not going to enable background app refresh. I don't see any reason a ride-share all should require it. The alert that goes off every 45 seconds to notify that I won't be able to receive background notifications is annoying and confusing. No other app requires this. If this is ever resolved I'll check it out again.
Not going to change my settings
by msbanasik on 2017/04/07 23:48
Just because one app (safr) makes it annoying to continue without background app refresh I'll just wait to use the app until you decide to disable the pop up appearing every 45 seconds But other than that, cool concept!
Doesn't work
by Leromano11 on 2017/04/03 11:59
Can't even create an account. Loads for 10+ minutes and then tells me an unknown error occurred.
Fantastic!
by missnettexx on 2017/03/07 13:05
An incredible company with empowerment at its forefront. I will choose Safr over any other ride sharing app and really hope they take off! 💪
Sexist app
by ChannelJuanNews on 2017/03/06 00:53
This app is horrible. I can't even use it. The UI is slick (i gotta give the developers props). But this app is still sexist. As a feminist I am deeply offended by these so called "egalitarians" who are blatantly sexist.
When I open the app it takes me to a page that forces me to invite friends
by Rachpg on 2017/03/05 16:13
Won't let me use the app, keeps taking me to page to invite friends. I have invited one friend hoping that would unlock the app but it must be frozen I can't find any place to contact them so SAFR if you read this please help me
Forces updates or doesn't work
by Christi Christi Christi on 2017/03/01 18:20
I went through the process of setting up an account which includes entering and verifying personal information, adding a photo, and credit card info. When I open the app, my only option presented is to invite friends. Either the app is non-functional or it forces you to invite people without ever using it, which I refuse to do. I still do not know if the service is available in my area.
Invite friends
by Ms. hungry on 2017/02/16 13:54
App will not allow me to request a ride before I invite my friend which requires access to my contacts. This is intrusive and not the best way to start a business. I would never refer a friend without trying the product first. Bad call.
could use some work
by Clauclauclaudia on 2017/02/16 03:38
If you want me to upload a photo, then don't stick me in "Moments". Who keeps their selfies by date? Send me to Albums. That's what the driver app does. Haven't gotten through the profile dialog so can't review anything else.
Nice experience
by Abby557 on 2017/02/01 08:09
Ah at last I unlocked the app! it has great interface and security features! I had to invite 10 people to signup and enter my referral code for app to unlock!
Problem
by xtotes on 2017/01/29 20:50
I absolutely love the idea of this app, it's really comforting to think that I could be safe riding around the city. However, both me and my best friend downloaded the app, set up our profiles and input our payment information, only to not be able to get past the 'share this with your friends!' Page. No matter how many times you share the app it won't let you get past that page for either of us. It seems the developers have some more work to do to get the app working properly, and I look forward to the day I can drive in the city at ease.
I really wanted this to work!
by Moonmommy#1 on 2017/01/29 15:44
I've downloaded the app, registered and entered a credit card, and even invited friends. But the promotional offer to share with friends will not go away and therefore I cannot request a ride. Or even confirm that this service is available in my area. So frustrating!
Awesome Company with a great Mission
by emilye2187 on 2019/10/02 17:10
I am super excited for this new concept of mostly women drivers with women riders. It’s also great that it is inclusive of men too, however they do an extensive background check for both men and women drivers. Also, they seem to do a check for the riders as well since in the news lately there’s riders that attack the drivers not just the drivers are at fault since it involves at least two people in the car! That’s a very good reason to do a background check on both parties in the car!! Awesome concept, great Mission and can’t wait for this to take off in Orlando as their second city thus far. It was started up in Boston by a concerned father with a daughter going to college soon. Since it is new and all I believe you got to give it time to iron out the kinks after all this a whole new ballgame and if you want to make the team you gotta try out!
Can't change your phone number
by Don The Artist on 2020/01/23 12:06
Can't edit or change your phone number or email address which is stupid. So I have to get a new phone I have to create a new account just for that number & create a new email address just specifically for your app. Which is nonsensical. Also it's not available in New Jersey. But overall I like the idea of the app but it’s not in my area of New York City/NJ. Especially after my girlfriend told me she doesn't like Uber or Lyft and would never take one because she doesn't trust the male drivers especially with all of the sexual harassment lawsuits happening in those companies.
Heads up - Focused on Boston!
by femmcascade on 2020/01/03 03:39
I’m giving this rating five stars like a previous reviewer since many negative reviews are based on it not being in their city rather than actual operational status. It was easy for me to make an account and register, love the convenience of a safer cab app option! Please be aware however, that this company is currently focused on Boston and is in the works of expanding to other cities.
Pointless
by savg19 on 2019/11/27 15:52
I was excited to download this app since I live in a large city and have had bad experiences with our public transportation in the past. However, there’s no way to tell if their services are available in your city until after you create an account, enter your payment information, and search your destination. It’s a waste of time. I’d like to know where this app actually DOES work because it’s not available in Minneapolis (a top 15 market) or my home city of Chicago (the 3rd largest market in the US). App is pointless until they actually get drivers. Don’t waste your time. Just use Lyft.
very difficult to deal with
by LikeTwoShips on 2017/12/23 02:02

Disappointing
by hellohellohellohellobye on 2019/09/07 06:16
I was out at night and was leaving a club alone, and the last thing I wanted was to drive a long distance with a male uber driver (have had really bad experiences in the past and at this hour only men were available). So I downloaded this app, and finally got an account set up. I requested my ride (11:30 pm in Hollywood) and no drivers were available. I kept trying for 15 minutes or so and still there were no available drivers. This app is a great idea, but it is nowhere near equipped to boast a fully functional, reliable application for women to feel safe.
Not available in my area
by Meepmeeproadrunner on 2019/07/17 21:27
I'm giving this 5 stars because its a wonderful idea and I'd love it to continue to be executed. And there's a swarm of 1 stars because its not available in their area. And that is keeping the overall rating real wonky. Its an easy to navigate app and I really wish I could use it where I live.
Why didn’t this exist before?
by tv10014 on 2019/09/29 20:46
This service is essential and sooo desperately needed in a lot of markets. Great service, amazing application and idea, right focus on specific markets, and serving with honor! Piece of mind for myself and piece of mind when my elderly mother rides with it as well. ... And I hope it will expand on other markets soon!!
Get it together!
by suel cross on 2019/09/01 03:58
I LOVE the idea of this app! I tried to download it for my daughter. It didn’t work! She was going out tonight IN BOSTON and we were not able to arrange a ride. After reading all of the reviews of people struggling to sign up I was so surprised that this was still an issue. Okay people, great idea, is this a QA issue or are you having technical issues? This was a very disappointing experience, please explain what the problem is and WHEN IT WILL BE RESOLVED.
Wanted to use
by Pirates for eva on 2018/08/08 01:21

The most innovative, SAFE way for women to get around
by SABESQ2019 on 2019/10/04 20:12
Being able to choose my driver and know that they passed a background check, an interview and so did their vehicle is INVALUABLE! Safr all the way!
Much needed!
by mom8890 on 2018/08/13 16:53
I would never ride with Uber or Lyft. It’s just not safe. Women driving women is needed to make sure women like me can easily and fearlessly travel anytime of the day. Safr can be the answer to so many prayers.
I love the idea but
by MegAnd333333333333 on 2018/08/27 19:36
It was way to easy to make a profile. There needs to be any sort of verification process to prove that people are who they claim to be, or else it’s just like all the others.
Great idea. Bad app.
by Il Moro di Venezia on 2018/08/30 02:58
Like other reviewer’s I have had no luck being able to set up an account with the app. That does not bode well for the experience when I am trying to use the app to hail a driver. Not sure why it’s so difficult, but the app tells me that it can’t set up an account because the data is in the wrong format (whatever that means).
Great app especially for working women
by S G Eagle on 2019/09/27 01:56
I don’t know why no one thought of this before. Working women can greatly benefit from it.
Can’t wait!
by IKristinac on 2019/09/27 01:44
So excited to see this company expanding its services to new cities, planning on using it once it launches in Orlando
When are you becoming available in Grand Rapids Michigan?
by Thesebastardsstolemy money on 2019/02/07 07:48
I downloaded it and it made me put in my cc info first then told me it’s not available in my area. Why not and when will it be? Thanks I would change my rating to a 5 if you were available in my area.
It just. Doesn't work. At all.
by atran2468 on 2019/12/26 01:54
I signed up. Fine. I put in all my info. Fine. I try to input a destination and it just loads and loads and loads. I deactivate my account to try to reopen it in hopes it'll work. I have to email to get it reactivated. Basically, it doesn't work.
Superb idea
by zulu jhon on 2018/07/31 18:34
I am really happy to use this application. Nice concept. Pretty secure and safe platform for traveling within city.
Amazing idea!
by WinsonI on 2019/09/27 03:58
The concept is amazing and the app is very seamless. I am all for women empowerment and am grateful that they finally have a platform.
wanted this so bad- but can’t use it
by Supermanwich23 on 2018/10/22 20:48
The app interface neglected to tell me they don’t operate in my city- but not til after i’d already entered my credit card info. Maybe put a message earlier about that? Just a thought.
Awesome company
by Ginatae on 2018/08/28 23:30
A great opportunity for females to drive and feel safe! The app is unique and user friendly
Not Loading
by Cecelia37 on 2019/11/14 11:56
I would have loved if the app actually worked. it’s an amazing idea but I had a really hard time trying to get a ride that I eventually just gave up and deleted the app.
Women drivers
by falisha537 on 2019/12/05 16:49
The whole reason I wanted to try this app was because I wanted to be able to select a women driver for my safety and it won’t allow me to do that I keep getting an error when trying to select my preference. Very disappointed!
Is it still active?
by asw96 on 2019/02/21 23:00
Really love this app compared to lyft and Uber but for the past few months I haven’t been able to find a driver ???
Great idea, but horrible execution
by sffi neu k on 2019/09/28 21:12
Great idea, but the app never works and I had a lot of problems trying to set up an account as a passenger and a driver. Sade’s customer service took months to get back to me and I still can’t use their business.
Nice
by Saddi28 on 2018/08/03 10:56
Easy interface and safe to use
no mobile payment option
by By Karen on 2018/10/01 20:52
Safr doesn’t allow riders to pay for rides via Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, Google Pay, etc. Will not use this ridesharing service until Safr does.
HORRIBLE
by 818mrsp on 2018/09/13 22:57
Horrible app! Can’t get passed the upload picture screen! If I could give this 0 stars I would. There is such a need for this service however this app is non-functioning. I will be deleting ASAP
Great idea but the app needs to be improved
by auvyl on 2019/11/16 13:17
I can’t even completely register myself because it won’t send me a text to confirm my cell no matter how many times I press it.
Don’t be fooled
by kmjmgee on 2020/02/27 00:24
What a joke! You sign up enter credit card info. Verify account and phone number. The. You book a ride like uber or Lyft.....and the driver never arrives! I think it’s only Boston but they never tell you that. Very dishonest
Only available in Boston
by Kokoj98 on 2019/05/31 03:15
Rlly wish i had known that before signing up. Easy to deactivate though. Really disappointed as im terrified to use Uber or Lyft, and this really would have helped my fears. Thanks though.
They ask for credit card before they tell you they don't operate in your city
by cnycz on 2018/12/13 04:32
I'm so bummed they don't operate in Los Angeles. And equally bummed this info was not disclosed until I did the whole sign up process.
No drivers.

by MelroseGG17 on 2017/08/03 14:32
I love the idea of Safr and was so excited to start using it. However, the app is so awful. I've only managed to use it 3 times. Now every time I look for a ride it times out and/or says my last ride (2 months ago) is still pending - not only did I get a receipt from that ride but there is no way to get more information. I emailed support three times over a month before finally getting a response that they could try the payment again (and didn't reference the credit that I had). So frustrated and giving up the app.
Problem

I absolutely love the idea of this app, it's really comforting to think that I could be safe riding around the city. However, both me and my best friend downloaded the app, set up our profiles and input our payment information, only to not be able to get past the 'share this with your friends!' Page. No matter how many times you share the app it won't let you get past that page for either of us. It seems the developers have some more work to do to get the app working properly, and I look forward to the day I can drive in the city at ease.
Not going to change my settings

Just because one app (safr) makes it annoying to continue without background app refresh I'll just wait to use the app until you decide to disable the pop up appearing every 45 seconds But other than that, cool concept!
