Viral Anxiety and Panic Attack App Offers Free Premium Access to Help with Increased Anxiety around COVID-19

Rootd is the #1 ranked mobile app for panic attack & anxiety relief on both iOS and Google Play, has over 270,000 downloads in over 100 countries, and was featured in the latest special edition of Time Magazine: The Age of Anxiety.

Rootd, a leading anxiety and panic attack app, announced today that it is offering free premium access to its complete content for companies and individuals worldwide. This offer comes as a direct response to heightened anxiety and uncertainty caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic.

“Dealing with anxious thoughts can be difficult for anyone, and adding on a feeling of isolation as we practice social distancing can increase the difficulty we are faced with” says Ania Wysocka, Rootd’s founder. “By providing in-the-moment panic and anxiety relief my hope is that we can reduce the negative impact of isolation and support those who are currently struggling.”

Rootd’s therapist-approved features include:

  • A panic button for when individuals are actually going through a panic attack
  • Lessons on understanding panic attacks and anxiety, as well as short term and long term changes a person can make in their life to manage anxiety and feel more in control
  •  A deep breathing tool (most people with anxiety tend to be shallow breathers)
  • A body scan tool (for a form of active meditation)
  • A journal tool (for better communication with counsellors)
  • Guided visualizations and soothing nature sounds
  • And a gamified stats page so that users can track progress and celebrate successes.

To redeem the free premium access offer, anyone is invited to visit where they can immediately sign up to be granted 45 days of free, no commitment access. Companies with over 1,000 employees are encouraged to reach out to Rootd for their own custom access. “Providing employees access to Rootd is a simple and direct way for employers to show care for employee health and can be especially meaningful now as many are adjusting to working remotely and concerned over their health or the health of loved ones.”

In addition to its in-the-moment panic attack relief Rootd encourages users to take on both short-term and long-term goals to learn to effectively manage their anxiety in the long run. The app is available in English, French, Portuguese, Polish and will soon be available in Spanish and Mandarin.


Rootd is a female created and led panic attack and anxiety app used by over 270,000 users around the world. The app (available on iOS and Google Play) blends attractive and engaging design, with content and features designed to help users during all stages of managing panic attacks and anxiety.

Some Recent Reviews for Rootd

“Had my first panic attack the other day. Thought I was dying. Never ever believed in anxiety before. I hold my hands up and apologise to all those who do suffer. It’s real. With all this madness that’s going on this app helped me…thank you.”

“Rootd has helped me regain control over my PTSD flashbacks and anxiety induced panic attacks. Learning the “why” of my anxiety through the lessons has been empowering, Breathr has helped me over my lunch break to de-stress from my work, Visualizr is my go-to mindfulness tool, and the Rootr is always there for me when things get out of control.”
Samantha S. Mar 24, 2020

“I’ve recently discovered the Rootd app and I LOVE it. My anxiety is very low-level but the app is super helpful at focussing my mind and helping dissolve any anxious thoughts. I volunteer for a crisis text line service and have recommended the app to them as I feel it’s invaluable. Especially helpful in the current climate. Developers are super responsive and kind too. 5* Thanks again for making Rootd”
