Sometimes we worry that our phones know too much.

But here's an app that encourages personal knowledge.

It's an app designed to keep you safe and let you family and friends know how to find you in an emergency.

Coming into contact with strangers can be a pretty common thing-- whether you're going on a date with someone you met online, showing up to do a job for a new client, or taking an uber.

Entrepreneur sheldon early wants to give people going into situations like those a way to let their loved ones know they're okay-- and alert them when they're not.

Sheldon early/ creator, location lockbox app 51:00 it was designed initially to target realtors and people using dating sites, college students traveling abroad, and 51:08 basically a check-in app.

His app "location lockbox became available in the app store and google play eight weeks ago.

Here's how it works-- you enter an "event" in the pho when you're going into a potentially risky situation--- you can say who you're with and where you're going.

Then at a certain time, you'll get a notification from the app checking in on you-- you'll type in a "safe" code everything's okay.

If it's not-- you type in your "panic" cod 52:11 when you put in your panic code, a text message then goes to your emergency contact that says 52:16 you were out with this person, are you at this location, and here's where your phone is at this given time.

If you don't respond when the app checks in on you, it will alert your emergency contact.

But the app only shows your location if you are not okay.

14:47 so it only allows people to know where you are in case it's an emergency early says that discretion is what makes location lockbox different from other safety apps.
