We’ve all been in a situation where it just doesn’t feel right. You might be working late and there’s a long dark barren walk to your car alone or even walking home after a night out with friends. There might even be no one around but shadows play tricks on you and peace of mind for you and your loved ones is really important.

Enter Optus with a new innovation called “Sidekick”
This new tile on the My Optus App is part of the Optus Living network. With it you can nominate 3 of your closest contacts to call you if you don’t respond after clicking it. It’s essentially the digital age’s version of “call me so I know you got home ok”. The feature is currently in BETA on IOS.

I caught up with Kate Brodie Optus Director of Digital AI to discuss the feature and it’s practical use.

It’s a really great concept and It feels like now more than ever something like this is necessary,
