The present disclosure describes computer-implemented systems and methods for providing an alternate application environment in emergency situations by allowing a user to use an entry mechanism that is for use in emergency situations (e.g., input an alternative PIN or emergency gesture) to enter a financial or banking application on a user computing device. The input of the emergency entry mechanism may display an alternative application environment that shows alternative information about the user’s accounts, prevents the transfer of funds to another entity, and initiates security measures while the user is in the alternative application environment. As a result, the safety of users of financial and banking applications can be increased, and bad actors can be deterred from accessing users’ financial accounts.
