How to Stay Safe While Walking at Night

The world is relatively safe. We have better security than ever. We have more monitoring than ever. Overall, we are safer than ever. But yet, people go missing. There's always a risk that something will happen. Especially when you travel and are in an unknown terrain. Perhaps you are walking an unsafe area and don't even know about it.

So what actions can you take to stay safe while walking at night?

Have a Tracker with You

Whether you have a tracker in your luggage or whether you allow others to see your location through an app, you are safer if people know where you are. If anything happens, people will know where you were seen last.

Letting people see where you are might not always be the best idea, but it’s a good choice when you are in an unknown area while walking at night.

Don't Put Your Head Down

When you put your head down, you are automatically sending a message to a potential attacker or thief. You show that you are not feeling confident around that person. And that makes you a better target. Even if you do not feel safe, do not act like that. That might make things worse.

Have a Portable Charger

Batteries might be getting better even in slimmer phones, but the specs are also getting better. Better specs mean more battery used.

There’s nothing worse than being without a charged phone at night. You won’t be able to call somebody. You won’t be able to share your location. You won’t be able to find where you are. If you want to stay safe while walking at night, you need a portable charger.

Zendure A8 QC has enough power to keep you fully charged for several days. And it has Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0, so if your phone dies or is very low on battery, it will be charged in no time.

If you are walking without a bag or always tend to have full pockets then perhaps you should try the A2 or A3. These are slimmer and will keep you charged during the day.

Talk on a Phone

When you are alone, it's important to feel not alone. A phone call might often help you gain confidence when walking alone. It can also prevent attackers or thieves from approaching you.

Conclusion

The chances are that nothing will happen to you. But you can never be too safe. These tips will help you feel more secure. They will also keep you more secure.
