All students with Monash-preferred Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC), Allianz Essentials, receive the Sonder safety app free of charge.

What is Sonder

Sonder is a smartphone app providing a multilingual safety and support service that ensures you have 24/7 access to help, when you need it! The provider, Sonder Australia, is a nationwide network of trusted and trained professionals who provide safety and security services, day or night.

How it works

24/7 access to local help

Sonder will know the precise decisions to make and actions to take if you find yourself in a situation that demands urgent attention. Simple swipe to automatically send an alert to our support centre, notifying them of your exact location and initiating remote or in-person assistance.

Check on me

If meeting someone new or going to an unfamiliar destination makes you feel uneasy or uncomfortable, Sonder’s ‘Check on me’ feature will allow them to contact you regularly to make sure you are okay.

Track my journey

Stay connected day or night with Sonder’s ‘Track my journey’ app feature. Whether you’re out and about or on your daily commute, Sonder monitor your progress throughout your journey until you feel safe, secure and no longer need us.

Geo-Safety alerts

Sonder’s 24/7 operations centre monitors both minor and major events which impact the safety of our students. Sonder harness geolocation technology to pinpoint whether you’re in or near a potential unsafe location and notify you immediately. If you indicate you’re unsafe, or we don’t hear back, we’ll
take action to ensure your safety.
