Use Cases

Living alone

Living on your own can be a thrilling and exciting experience, where your independence is finally realized for what might be the first time ever. Enjoy the newfound freedom with the knowledge that someone out there can help keep you safe if necessary.

What does it mean to be living alone?

A new job, heading off to college, or just a general craving for independence, there are many reasons why people of all backgrounds choose to fly the nest and live alone. There is nothing quite like the feeling of being in control of your life and decisions, without worrying about waking your mom or disturbing a roommate.

However, with newly acquired liberty comes a few safety concerns as well–– especially if you identify as a woman or nonbinary individual. While society has come a long way in improving these vulnerable groups’ safety, there is still, unfortunately, more to be done. We hope to help by offering our secure, fully encrypted services built to keep you safe.

Safety concerns for people living alone

If you’re someone living alone for any reason, especially if you are a non-white member of the LGBT+ community, the safety concerns don’t need to be spelled out. The likelihood of being a victim of a physical or sexual crime increases simply by virtue of being on your own. We know that not only are you aware of these potential dangers, but your family is as well and they want to be sure you’re as safe as possible. This is why we’ve done everything possible to ensure that HYF.M is here for you to keep you out of trouble.

Risk of Sexual Assault

As a woman or nonbinary person, the risk of sexual assault is higher than a cis man’s, especially when living by yourself. By regularly updating loved ones with your whereabouts, you can increase the chances of getting out of risky situations unscathed.

Being Followed by a Stalker

The sad reality is that people are unpredictable and can be capable of some perverse things. Those living alone can be more at risk of being stalked by a dangerous person, but by using our highly secure and encrypted features you can rest assured that someone you love is monitoring your safety and can act accordingly in case of an emergency.

Ending Up in a Place You Don’t Know

If you are someone living alone for the first time, or are living alone in a new area, it’s likely you could end up in unfamiliar situations in unknown places. With HYF.M, you can enjoy new experiences with the relieving knowledge that your loved ones are equipped to save you from any potential dangers.

No Way to Alert Someone You Trust

Who hasn’t rushed to the bar only to realize their phone has 27% left? Who hasn’t accidentally dropped their phone in the toilet when updating their best friend on the disastrous date they’re on? Life happens, and sometimes we’re left in sticky situations where we’re unable to notify someone we trust of any suspicious behavior. Luckily, loved ones (and only them!) are granted access to your life-saving information once criteria that you have established is met, regardless of the state of your technology.

Safety must be your first priority.

You never know when you’ll end up in a risky situation. Make sure the people you trust have access to the information that can potentially save you in an emergency.

HelpYouFind.Me puts the worries of those living alone to rest

Say hello to Whitney, a 26-year-old entrepreneur who moved away from home at 18. Now she lives alone in New Jersey, and though she is more than capable of taking care of herself, she still wishes there was some way to ensure the safety of her and her beloved dogs, Marcel and Cleo. It seems like HYF.M is just what she’s looking for.

If you are someone who lives alone and you find yourself in a life-threatening situation, it can be extra worrisome because you’re unsure if anyone will realize you’re in danger in enough time.

In most cases, it can take law enforcement authorities days or even weeks to access the potentially life-saving information–– like your last updated location, social media credentials, recent photos, credit card details, flight history, and more–– that your loved ones will have access to almost immediately because of HYF.M’s revolutionary encrypted technology. This means you can be returned to the safety of your loved ones in a much shorter span of time than if you hadn’t used HYF.M.

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.

It’s all in your control, all that matters is you get home safe.
