Zoleo provides SOS alerting with 24/7 monitoring, check-in and weather forecasts. In May 2021, Zoleo added the option for breadcrumb tracking and location push notifications for an additional fee of $6/month.

Zoleo plans can be suspended (after the first 3 months) for $4/month, which allows you to maintain your personal Zoleo communication number and email address.
