Although the internet is inundated with information about safety tips for single women, living alone can be daunting for anyone. If you live alone or are considering living alone, keep these tips in mind. Forewarned is forearmed.
1. Utilize Security Apps
CheckInOn.Me is a free app available on Android and iOS devices and works a little differently than many other apps on the market. It utilizes a code word to disengage its precautions at set intervals.
Kitestring is another app that can keep you safe. It maintains a contact list who should be alerted if something happens. If you know you’re going to be having a maintenance person around and you don’t feel comfortable, for instance, you can input a time in the app. If you don’t disengage the app within that timeframe, it will contact your list.
Traditionally, security systems are the preeminent way to stay safe in your home. Now you can install surveillance, take biometric scanning precautions, and access the data remotely.

3. Other Precautions
Mace or pepper spray is debated as a safety precaution, but carrying your keys between your knuckles could give you an advantage when you are walking to your door. Having a dog has proven effective at deterring intruders from entering a home. Always have someone close by that you can depend on in case of an emergency, and keep their information handy.
Living alone doesn’t have to be a scary proposition. Take the steps to be prepared and stay safe, and the experience of independence can be enjoyable.
