More information

Unlike a web page, where you can switch directly between languages, SecurUO (like most mobile apps) defaults to the language your mobile device is set to.

SecurUO stores no personal data of any kind and cannot access your phone without your permission. The University is committed to protecting both your privacy and anonymity when you use this safety app. You may consult AppArmor's Commitment to User Privacy for additional information on the app access and privacy.
