At ADT, we believe everyone has the right to feel safe. Following successful partnerships to make ridesharing safer for riders and drivers, build emergency services for personal shoppers, and integrate its safety solutions into wearables, ADT is now entering into the next phase of its mobile safety expansion by partnering with safety and preparedness platform, harbor. The partnership integrates ADT's proprietary mobile safety platform, Safe by ADT, with harbor's disaster preparedness app.

Starting today, we will provide emergency assistance to users of harborHELP, a premium subscription feature within harbor's app, allowing users who feel unsafe to quickly connect with ADT. A simple slide of the HELP button quickly initiates an SOS and sends an alert to ADT. ADT will contact the customer via voice or SMS chat, alert authorities, and share their location, as well as other user-provided, personally identifiable information to help emergency responders locate and identify them.

We are dedicated to helping protect and connect people and the things they love most. harbor customers now have more options than ever to stay safe wherever they are, backed by America's most trusted security company. Whether you're at home or on the go, ADT is reimagining how safety can fit seamlessly into our daily lives.
