General Motors announced June 7 its OnStar Guardian mobile app is now available to all customers in the United States and Canada with a compatible Apple or Android device.

Now, customers without a GM vehicle can stay protected and connected from anywhere and in any vehicle through the OnStar Guardian app. The expansion of OnStar Guardian, which first launched in June 2020, is part of GM's commitment to focus on opportunities beyond vehicle sales to make the road — and the world — a safer place.

With OnStar Guardian, customers can access key OnStar safety and security services on their mobile device and get help when they need it from an OnStar Advisor. Customers can also share these features with others by adding up to seven additional people to the My Family section within the Guardian app.

OnStar Guardian offers Mobile Crash Response, which uses smartphone sensors to detect crashes and alert an Emergency-Certified OnStar Advisor. OnStar Guardian also will launch new features this month in Location Status, including the ability to save and share favorite locations on the app’s embedded map and receive notifications for destination departures and arrivals of family and friends.

OnStar Guardian is currently available to OnStar members in the U.S. and Canada who are enrolled in a Safety & Security plan. For those without a GM vehicle, a standalone subscription plan is available to anyone in the U.S. and Canada. Anyone can download the app and sign up for the service today through the Apple App Store and Google Play.
