Rave Guardian Expands Messaging App Support, Integrates with Rave Alert

Rave Mobile Safety has released a major update to one of its messaging platforms, Rave Guardian.

The new version adds a number of features, including the ability to reach students in the apps they use most often, such as Snapchat and WhatsApp. According to Rave: "Rave Guardian has been updated to better reach and engage students on mobile devices since they find email and phone calls to be outdated. Students aren't interested in Facebook and Twitter, rather they prefer closed messaging apps like Snapchat and WhatsApp. In fact, Generation Z students are three times more likely to open a chat message through a push notification."

Other features include:

  • Integration with Rave Alert;
  • Geo-targeted push notifications;
  • Confidential tips;
  • Call directory;
  • App customization;
  • Routable chats;
  • Safety timer; and
  • Emergency call button.
