Frequently Asked Questions

How do I check-in if my phone isn’t working?
Dial +1 (844) 243-9110 to check in from any phone, whether it’s a cellphone or landline. Our automated operator will help you check-in.

Is Snug available for Android?
Snug is available for Android – you can download it here.

How long do I have to check-in before you notify my emergency contacts?
You have 10 minutes to check-in past your scheduled time before we will attempt to contact you: if your check-in is at 8:00 AM, you have until 8:10 AM.

  • If you are on the free plan, Snug will send each of your emergency contacts a text message saying that you have missed your check-in at 8:15 AM.
  • If you are on the Snug Dispatch plan, a Snug dispatcher will call your cell phone and ask if you are alright.  If you do not pick up, they will leave a voicemail with a callback number. They will then proceed to call every one of your contacts, in order. If you have not checked-in by 8:15 and the dispatcher does not have confirmation that you are okay, or that one of your emergency contacts will check on you, they will dispatch a wellness check to your last known location.

How much does Snug cost?
The basic version of Snug is free. The Snug Dispatch plan is $9.99/month or $99/year.

Can I use Snug on multiple devices at the same time?

Unfortunately, Snug will only work on a single device at time. For example, if you first installed Snug on an iPhone and then installed it on an iPad – Snug will only work on the iPad.

What do I do if I get a new phone?

If your phone number didn’t change:

  1. Remove the Snug app from the old device.
  2. Download and complete set up on the new device. Note: This will not create a new account, but you must complete the set up process.

If your phone number DID change, please contact the Snug team by email at – the Snug team will need to know your old phone number.
