Calling for Backup: Introducing Teams

We're excited to announce that Dead Man's Snitch is now easier to use with your entire team. Gone are the days of sharing a single login or using a shared mailing list for alerts. Now, everyone on your team can have their own login and personalized alert settings. Using Slack or PagerDuty and don't need emails? You can now opt out of email alerts as well.

We want Dead Man's Snitch to be a great fit for teams of any size. So all of our paid plans allow you to invite as many team members as you need, at no extra cost. All team members are able to monitor and manage Snitches, create new API keys, and add or develop their own integrations.

Ready to get started? Start inviting your team now.

Along with better support for teams, we're also introducing Cases, a new way to separate your Snitches by project or team. With Cases, you can organize Snitches from multiple projects, applications, or teams in a way that makes sense to you. There's also no need to log in and out to access the Cases. Each Case has its own set of team members and integrations, so alerting the right team members of any issues is easy.

Multiple API Keys
Dead Man’s Snitch now supports multiple API keys. The ability to enable or disable API access over a variety of services will give you more control, security, and granularity. If you are currently utilizing an API key through Dead Man’s Snitch, that key will continue to work without interruption. For more information on multiple API keys, visit our documentation.

iOS Update: More Snitch Details

Version 2.2.0 of the Dead Man's Snitch iOS app is now available for download. The latest version is aimed at making it much easier for you to see what exactly is going on with your job, just like you would if you logged into your dashboard at

When viewing snitches on your iOS device, you can now tap on an individual snitch to get a more detailed breakdown. You are now able to view recent history, tags, notes, and messages that were sent with a check-in. With these added details, if something does go wrong with a job, you'll be able to react faster.

In order to make the experience between the app and the website much more seamless, we've updated the icons as well. Another thing we did is fix a bug revolving around error handling. Previously, if there was a network or HTTP error, the app would hang on the loading screen and never display anything. With new error handling, you now know what exactly went wrong.

If you haven't updated to the newest version of Dead Man's Snitch for iOS yet, head on over to the App Store today.

Happy Snitching!

New Year, New Looks

Snitch Activity

We’ve improved what you see when you’re looking at your snitches! When you check up on your snitch, you’ll see a report describing any recent incidents. With this, you will quickly be able to see if your snitch failed to check in at any point, how long it was missing, and if it still needs attention.

We also list your snitch’s check-in activity with all new graphics. It is now easy to see when during a period your snitch checked in. This visual can help you to find abnormalities in your job’s check in time, or just be reassured that everything is running as expected.

Icon Changes

Note, we changed the icon for when a snitch misses a check-in (in preparation for some future developments). You will now be alerted with a blue question mark icon instead of the red 'X'.
