Windows/Web App for Workers

There are many ways to use the OK Alone lone worker solution: app, SMS, landline, satellite phone and desktop. This last one is perhaps the least well known.

For lone workers who work remotely, not necessarily out and about, but based in one location, the desktop version of the Ok Alone system is perfect.

The solution offers desktop check ins and all the same features as the app but is not reliant on a phone battery.

The Desktop versions is available both in a browser at or is downloadable from the Windows App Store

Lone workers can open the solution in a separate tab and have it accessible all day from their pc or laptop while they work. When the reminder alert sounds workers can use the desktop check in with minimal disruption to let monitors know they are all right.

How to Use the Web/Windows App

To get started open the app and enter your pin number.

The system’s homepage is set out the same as the phone app.

Once you click ‘Start Shift’ the screen will show the countdown until the next check in is due. This is also where you can access settings, messages, select a high risk countdown, end shift or log out.

If you enter the ‘Settings’ menu, you can select your location monitoring level and the alarm tone. It is recommended that you always have the location setting set to ‘on’. This will allow your Monitor to see where you are in an emergency.

You can also choose the alarm you would like to sound to remind you to check in. To listen to the options, click on the name of the alarm and then ‘play alarm’. To  select the one you want, click on the name and then the large orange ‘Save and Back’ button. You will need the devices sound turned on to hear the alarm.

If the missed check in alarm does sound, simply click ‘Check In’.
