True Crime Fanatics

Every true crime fan has a version of what we call an “If I Go Missing Folder,” or a folder of valuable personal information helpful recovering you should you ever go missing. Now, it’s time for that folder to be safe, end-to-end encrypted, and accessible to those you trust the most in case of an emergency.

What does it mean to be a true crime fanatic?

If you’re unsure if you would classify yourself as a ‘fanatic,’ ask yourself some questions first: do you find yourself revolving your plans around the release of a new serial killer documentary on Netflix? Have you ever missed your bus stop on purpose just so you could have more time to listen to the latest episode of your favorite True Crime podcast? Is your idea of a perfect Friday night filling a glass of wine and obsessively sleuthing around on Reddit threads for hours into the night? Answering yes to any and/or all of these questions would definitely put you in ‘fanatic’ territory. As a fanatic, we’re sure you understand the importance of maintaining a catalog of personal information important to locating you in the event of your disappearance. It’s fanatics’ love of true crime and personal safety that drove us to create HelpYouFind.Me, a digitized “If I Go Missing Folder” with secure, end-to-end encrypted technology protecting your valuable information that is only accessible to a group of loved ones that you choose.

Safety concerns for true crime fanatics

Honestly, for all our talk about how great and important we believe HelpYouFind.Me to be, we hope you never have to use it because that would mean either you or a loved one is in danger. We understand the gravity of a situation like that, which is why we know how important having key personal information readily accessible to people you trust is when there’s no time to waste. It’s also why we’ve done everything possible to embed that information securely so that it is only accessible to a select chosen few–– and no one else, not even us.

Keep Your Information Safe

It’s safe to say that as a true crime fanatic, you tend to be extra… careful. After all, after hours of studying various cases, it’s only natural that you would want to take every precaution necessary. That’s why we created a place where you can store sensitive, life-saving information without fear of it falling into the wrong hands.

Traveling Alone Frequently

The life of a fanatic can lead you to some interesting places; besides Crime Con, there are plenty of events centered around myriad cases that every fanatic would love to attend. This can mean a lot of time spent traveling alone as you go from case to case. As any true fanatic knows, solo traveling can lead to some mysterious, unsolved circumstances–– stay prepared and ready by updating loved ones on your travels using HelpYouFind.Me’s secure and encrypted features.

Getting Yourself Into a Dangerous Situation

When as knowledgeable about the dangers of the world as a true crime fanatic is, it’s only sensible that you would worry about stumbling into some trouble yourself. No matter how likely it is of this happening, it’s always important to be prepared by ensuring your vital details are accessible to people you trust in the event of an emergency.

No Access to Instant Communication

Any fanatic knows that having a functioning phone and having a dead phone can mean all the difference when in an unsafe situation. Have some reassurance that, regardless of your phone’s battery, your loved ones have the ability of helping you if it’s necessary.

Stay Safe.

HelpYouFind.Me helps you be proactive about your safety by letting your loved ones access key life-saving information.

It would be hard to find someone as fanatical about True Crime as David, a podcaster from Texas who documents his own investigations into various unsolved cases. We had people like David, who understand the importance of sharing crucial personal information with loved ones, in mind as we developed HYF.M.

You never know what could help return you to safety if you ever find yourself in an emergency situation, but it definitely can’t hurt if your loved ones have nearly immediate access to vital personal information (such as your last updated location, social media posts, recent photos, credit card details, etc.) that would otherwise take authorities days or weeks to obtain. As any true crime fanatic will be sure to tell you, time makes all the difference.

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.
