Digital Nomads

Life is unpredictable. It makes sense to be prepared.

What does it mean to be a digital nomad?

Aside from just being bohemian version of remote workers, digital nomads are people who live itinerant lives, traveling from place to place while working via telecommunication and other modern technologies. Their goal is to live nomadically and to work on their own terms.

Safety concerns for female digital nomads

While this type of life is enviable, it definitely comes with its own set of safety concerns, just as any type of solo traveling would. Especially if you are someone who identifies as a woman or as a nonbinary person, this lifestyle requires you to be vigilant and to take necessary precautions.

Ending Up In a Dangerous Location

Going to new places is one of the most exciting things someone could do, but it also means you’re going to be faced with unfamiliar situations. So next time you’re doing your research on what Oslo or Nairobi or Kyoto is like to live in, make sure to update HelpYouFind.Me with vital information your family can use to help you if you find yourself in danger.

Facing Issues In a Strange Place

One of the most worrisome parts of traveling to places is not knowing what to do in case of emergency, or what the legal processes of a new country are. While Google can give you a general overview, it’s definitely more relieving knowing that people you trust are also capable of delivering you to safety if necessary.

Getting Into an Emergency Situation

Regardless of how much planning you put into your travels, you can’t predict everything and may find yourself in an emergency situation. This is why it can be reassuring to use HYF.M’s secure and encrypted services to update your loved ones along your travels so they know where to go if you’re in trouble.

Absence of Instant Communication

Though this may seem a tad ironic given the nature of digital nomads’ jobs, it’s still a possibility as each place you travel to carries the risk of having inadequate WiFi or cell reception. While this is mainly more perilous for your work, it can also prove troublesome if you find yourself in a risky situation and are unable to notify anyone. Good thing your loved ones can help law enforcement locate you using the life-saving information you entrusted to them.

You never know what could happen.

Unpredictability is inherent to any form of solo-traveling or nomadic lifestyle, but this doesn’t mean you can’t be prepared. Share life-saving information with those you love and trust today so you can be ready for any situation.

HelpYouFind.Me helps you share your personal information securely and safely

A free spirit by nature, Sofia is a software engineer whose nomadic lifestyle has seen her work and travel to 37 different cities in over 10 different countries. She can’t imagine her life being any different, though she does wish she had a more secure way of telling her family and friends she’s safe. That’s where we come in.

Any piece of personal information, no matter how mundane (this can include anything from your last updated location and social media credentials to credit card numbers and recent photos) can help your loved ones find you and ensure your safety. What would usually take law enforcement days or even weeks to procure (or longer, as foreign cases can be trickier), takes virtually no time with HelpYouFind.Me’s highly encrypted, secure features that grants loved ones access to life-saving details. This could mean the difference between a safe journey home or something bad happening during your travels.

1. Share Any Type of Personal Information

HelpYouFind.Me is a versatile service that can be used to share any type of personal information in a secure manner without worrying it will fall into the wrong hands. This can include sharing specific guidelines for emergencies (like if you go missing), social media credentials, your last updated location, places you've been to, banking details, hotel and flight details, important photos, and more.

2. Your Personal Data Remains Completely Secure

As you are entrusting us with your most private data, we have done everything possible to not only earn that trust, but to ensure your information can’t be seen by those you haven’t authorized. Our end-to-end encryption feature means only people who you have chosen can access your personal details. Anyone outside of this select few (including any one of us here at HYF.M!) has no way to share or even view your personal information.

3. Specify Who Gets Access and How They Get It

HelpYouFind.Me enables you to establish a specific and individualized set of criteria that must be met in order for your loved ones to access your data. For example, if you are ever in an emergency, your spouse or sibling may be granted immediate access, while your best friend may view it after twelve hours and your grandmother might have to wait up to a week. It’s all in your control, all that matters is you get home safe.
