There are many ways to make money from the comfort of your home, but few are hardly ever mentioned or noticed because they’re either new platforms or channels that haven’t gotten much buzz in the society.
While conventional methods to earn money online is to start a blog, join an affiliate program, engage in surveys, offer professional writing services, and much more, becoming active on The Ranger can be another way to make money off the internet from your mobile phone.
But First, What’s The Ranger App?
The Ranger app is a personal security mobile application that alerts the security forces, medical agencies, and/or your friends & family members whenever you’re in trouble. It has a large “Help Me!” button on the front page of the app, which when clicked, will immediately alert everyone about your security situation and send your location to them at the same time, while also publishing your location on the application’s forum page.
How Then Can You Make Money From The Ranger App?
There are a couple of ways to make money from The Ranger app from the comfort of your home or wherever you are with your mobile phone. Some of them are:
1). Redeem Ranger Points:
When you act as a Ranger on the Ranger App’s forum and also help alert security forces when a “Help Me!” alert is set off by someone in distress anywhere in the country, you’d get some Ranger points which accumulate over time to become cashable money for you.
2). Sell Your Products & Services:
The Ranger application has a forum section where asides you just asking security questions to get answers, you could equally promote your products and services to the other Rangers who are active in your location. This way, you could take advantage of the forum’s strength to build a customer base that would purchase your products on a recurring basis. In this case, security related products could make a great sale.
3). Advert Referral Bonus:
Rangers (users) on the application who refer companies to advertise on the Ranger app get a commission from every client they refer to the platform. Depending on the amount and duration the client pays for, the commission value would vary.
To Sum It Up
The Ranger App can be a place to earn a little extra pocket money online, but its core purpose is strictly for you to be able to alert the security forces and your loved ones with only one tap of the “Help Me!” button. And since your alert would be posted on The Ranger forum the second you set off a panic alarm, it’s critical for many of your friends and family members to be registered on the application so they wouldn’t just be alerted the moment you have a security or medical emergency, but would be the ones to act the fastest.

Threatening events or situations can happen almost anywhere at any moment. This is the reason personal security guards or companies implement a lot of measures to not just ensure their clients are safe at all times but can get out of any threatening position they find themselves in.
But not everyone can afford the services of a security company, and are thus left to protect themselves in the best ways they can, anywhere they find themselves; especially since an in-depth knowledge on personal security remains a problem for the average person to not just acquire, but to also implement.
While no one looks forward to being in a risky situation at any point in their lives, it is paramount that safety precautions should be learned and implemented by everyone at all times till it becomes muscle memory.
To help you stay safe in every environment you find yourself in Nigeria; whether Lagos, Port Harcourt, Abuja, or anywhere else, here are 4 personal security mistakes you should start implementing today:
1). Be Observant Of Your Surroundings:
The first mistake people mostly do is to pay less attention to the environment they find themselves in. When this happens, you’re exposed to a lot of risky scenarios, whereas if you’re observant in a calm manner about everywhere you visit, your sixth sense would be on alert to any suspicious, strange, and prospective threat that may come your way.
2). Trust Your Instincts:
Human history has shown severally that our instincts have always stood a better chance of sensing anything safe or dangerous. Whenever we meet a malicious person, we tend to sense the unrealness and malice the person tends to emit, but mostly still choose to move forward on whatever it is with the individual. The same applies to our personal safety.
Our instincts always get the better half of us in most situations, and have best been able to draw our attention to danger whenever we least expect.
This ability to sense dangers in the environment doesn’t just end at humans, but is very visible in animals as well, because they rely mostly on their instincts to determine how safe or not another animal, person, or place is.
So if you ever have a bad feeling about someone or sense threat or danger in any environment, you should act on it immediately!
3). Always Visit Sensitive Environments With At Least One Other Person:
If you’re visiting a place that may be unsafe for you to ply alone, it is advisable to journey with at least one other person with you. Some miscreants or threats mostly only act if their target is alone. By having one other person with you, you would have a far higher chance of discouraging them from approaching.
4). You Should Install The Ranger App:
With little to no time to call the police or any other security agency when you’re in a time of dire trouble, you’re left with only one highly effective option. And that’s The Ranger app.
The application alerts the police and every other security agency the moment you open it and tap the “help” button. This is an effortless process because as soon as the button is tapped, several agencies get your help alert, location and then dash out to wherever you are to provide help.
Your family members are also alerted in the process so that you can have them reaching out to people to come to your rescue.
