Avoid high risk areas

Waze currently offers alerts for high-risk areas in Israel and Brazil only.

In those countries, you’ll get an alert:

  • Before you start navigating to a high-risk area
  • If and when you enter a high-risk area

Waze will avoid high risk areas by default. If you would like to disable this setting:

  1. Tap Search , then Settings 
  2. Tap Navigation
  3. Turn off Avoid high risk areas
