The “LiveSafe” app is designed to improve communication between our University community members and Public Safety, and allows for faster emergency response in distress situations. The app is free and available to all members of our community: students, faculty, staff, parents, visitors, and friends.
Through LiveSafe, you can submit information and chat with Public Safety in both emergency and non-emergency situations, and you can look out for your friends and loved ones by watching them get to their destination safely with SafeWalk. If you need a medical or security escort on the Malibu campus or a ride back to the Malibu campus, you can call Public Safety using the SafeRide feature. When you submit a tip, you can attach a photo, video clip, or audio clip, and you can submit all of this information anonymously if you choose. And, when you use LiveSafe to call 911 or contact Public Safety in an emergency, the app can track your location, which helps first responders know exactly where help is needed.
We’ve also loaded critical information resources into the app, so you now have emergency response information and contact information for key University services at your fingertips anytime, anywhere—even internationally.[i]
Here’s how you can get the app:
- Open Google Play or the Apple App Store on your phone. Search for “LiveSafe” and download the option with the blue shield.
- Tap “Sign up.” Fill in your profile information and create a password. (You are welcome to use your personal, non-Pepperdine e-mail address. We suggest that you do not use the same username and password as you use for the Pepperdine Central Authentication Server.)
- “Pepperdine University” may pop-up if you are close to the campus. If so, tap “Yes.” Otherwise tap “Change” to select “Pepperdine University” as your institution.
[i] Most of the app’s features will work internationally, so long as you have a Wi-Fi or cellular data connection. You will still be able to submit tips and information to Public Safety, and you will be able to utilize the SafeWalk feature. However, the “Call 911” option is programmed for US emergency dispatch only and will not automatically route to local first responders. In an emergency situation overseas, it will be important to dial the correct 911-equivalent number for your location. You can find this information at http://travel.state.gov.
