Flare 4.0 - The biggest release in Flares’ history!
Flare 4.0 is here, our biggest and best release to date. We’re so excited to announce the latest version of Flare is now live and available to download!
Version 4.0 features the best incident detection in the industry powered by our new SIDE ML (Serious Incident Detection Engine Machine Learning) algorithm trained on over two years' worth of accident data. This allows the system to accurately and quickly get you help, fast, providing confidence to our users.
We've also enhanced our SmartStart feature to bring you the most reliable automatic start and stop protection ever. SmartStart automatically turns Flare on in the background when you’re active and out of your safe zone, so you don’t have to worry about launching the app each time. This means you are always protected!
Say goodbye to unexpected hazards. Our latest feature, Hazards, now alerts you in real-time about anything that could affect your safety, all powered by the Flare community! Through the Hazards feature you can report anything that other Flare users may find helpful such as, road accidents, physical attacks, near-misses and pot-holes.
We believe nobody should feel alone so we’ve enabled you to find help faster than ever before from nearby users should you need a helping hand! If you urgently need help, quickly activate an SOS alert to your loved ones with real-time location sharing via voice command, gestures – such as double or triple tap on the back of your phone or the SOS button!
Not only that - but if you're out with friends, why not ensure that nobody is left behind with our most powerful GroupSafe release ever. GroupSafe allows you to be part of a group sharing your live location with each other in case one of you were to become vulnerable. Perfect for evenings and nights out!
As we’re revolutionising the world of personal safety, we’re proud to be enhancing our features to support our ever-growing user-base, making this technology accessible and affordable. Something which we’re immensely proud of!
In a world’s first, Flare users will now be further protected with incident prevention. Flare will be connected to another system called RoadRadar which will be installed into commercial vehicles (HGVs). If you are in the blind spot of partnered HGV and you or your friends/family have Flare on their smartphone, the driver of the HGV will receive a notification, so they know you are in dangerous proximity.
Launching in Spring 2022, RoadRadar will be enabled on thousands of commercial vehicles across the UK and Flare is its first partner!
Flare works with the sensors in your phone to ensure your safety is maintained. If a user is involved in an incident, the app will begin a 30 second countdown to move or respond and if there is no movement or response their exact location is sent to emergency contacts, using What3Words, so help can arrive quickly. Users can also locate their friends and family through the GroupSafe feature and call for Community Assistance if they ever need help which alerts other Flare users.
Not only does Flare protect you but all users are rewarded for using the app as via Sweatcoins, a new type of currency. These can be redeemed in exchange for exclusive rewards, whilst Flare Premium users have access to exclusive partners and higher discounts.
