Common Questions

Who is eligible to use the app?

Current UB students, faculty and staff may use the app. Anyone who can receive text messages can be set as a "guardian" to receive notifications.

How is this different from UB Alerts?

UB Guardian is a companion app to the existing UB Alert emergency notification system, and will be able to receive UB Alert push notifications about weather and emergency situations. You must first enroll in UB Alert to get the full benefit of UB Guardian.

Is UB Guardian always tracking me?

No. Your privacy is of the utmost importance. You can only be located if you have asked for help. UB Guardian location information is only enabled when you choose to make an emergency call, send a tip or when your safety timer expires.
