(Un-) safe in Rio?

How travelers can increase their safety on site with travel security app Safeture. 
Is Rio de Janeiro ready for the Olympic Games? There are different opinions regarding this question, just a few weeks before the opening ceremony. The numerous fans, who will soon get ready to fly to Brazil to support their medal hopes, are best advised to make sure to be prepared and know about potential risks on site. The Swedish company Global Warning System (GWS) is supporting sports fans in doing so and is offering its travel security app Safeture for free to the first 10.000 travelers, who download or activate the app in Rio de Janeiro, or have downloaded or activated the app before coming to Rio de Janeiro.
Safeture (available in the Apple App Store and Google Play) is providing you with real time information on current security issues and health threats worldwide. Moreover, you can find important emergency numbers directly in the app. For the games in Rio, specific content for Rio de Janeiro was integrated into the country information on Brazil. For example, you can find an overview of the current situation in Rio, information on terror threats, crime or civil unrest. Furthermore, with Safeture you get always up to date information regarding medical topics, like Zika, information on nearest doctors and hospitals, and general travel tips for Rio de Janeiro (more info at http://riosafety2016.com/).

“Travel can be more wonderful and exciting than just about anything. But there are times when you should be watchful,” says Andreas Rodman, CEO from GWS. “We want to let you enjoy exploring and discovering.”
