Yes the app is safe, it helps to find device locations and lock phone and erase data if lost or stolen. Instead of app you can use Find my Mobile that is built in on the phone just need to setup. To do so go to settings> Biometrics and Security >Find My Mobile. It is same as the app and has more options available.
