The University Police Department (UPD) will be on-hand to discuss free, IT-based safety services at the Student Tech Fair on October 10. Stop by the UPD table and learn how to download and use:
- FrontDoor Software
- TapShield App
- SNAP App
FrontDoor Software, free to all students, faculty, and staff, is a loss- and theft-prevention software that you can remotely lock, alarm, and use to track your laptop if it’s stolen. Download the software here: http://www.police.ufl.edu/front-door-software.
TapShield is a mobile application that allows you to report tips to UPD, make emergency calls, and update friends with your location. The free TapShield app is available in the App Store and Google play.
The Student Nighttime Auxiliary Patrol (SNAP) is for students looking to catch a ride instead of walking home at night. Download the SNAP app and make it easy on yourself to request a pick-up. SNAP rides are available from 6:30 p.m. to 3:00 a.m., seven days a week.
Visit UF’s Student Tech Fair on October 10 in Tech Plaza, outside the Marston Science Library, or email Capt. Jeffrey Holcomb, for more information on UPD’s safety services.
