Inside the Namola app, tap on the “Contacts” icon.
To add an emergency contact, tap the big “Add a contact” button or the icon in the top right that has a little +. Once you’ve selected up to five contacts, tap the checkmark (Android) or “Send invite” button (iPhone).
If your contact is already using Namola, they’ll receive a push notification about your request. If your contact isn’t registered on Namola yet, they’ll receive an SMS with a link to download the app.
Your contact, once registered for Namola, will find your request by opening Namola and going to “Contacts”. Tap on the request to either accept or decline it. (Until they have accepted your request, an emergency contact will show as “invited” in your Contacts inside Namola. Perhaps follow up with them to remind them to accept, if they’re still showing as “invited” after a few days…)
Once the contact has accepted to become your emergency contact, they’ll receive notifications whenever you request assistance for yourself in a real emergency. When one of your emergency contacts receives an SOS alert from Namola, they can open the Namola app, and see your emergency under “Contacts”. If they tap on your emergency, they’ll be able to call you, see where you are and navigate to your location. They can also participate in a chat group with you, your other emergency contacts, and—most importantly—the Namola control room operator who is co-ordinating the emergency response. This way, your emergency contacts will be kept fully informed about your emergency at all times.
