GuardMe and Follow On Tracking are Complimentary services that are part of the MTN 2MyAid service.
Here is how they work:
- GuardMe: lets you activate a guard via USSD (*120*911*444#) for a certain amount
of time, either set by you or a default of 45min is used. If you do not deactivate
the guard in the time stated then a panic will be automatically sent to your four
emergency contacts as soon as the time expires. This is useful if you are entering a
dangerous area or travelling late at night.
- Follow On Tracking: allows your four emergency contacts to be able to locate you
after you have sent them a panic alert. Your contacts will only be able to track you
in the time limit after your panic, this is either set by you or a default of 120 min is used.
