A Free App to keep you safe whenever & wherever
MSAI(Mobile Standards Alliance of India) in association with Nirbhaya Jyoti Trust launched a new safety app for women called the ‘I Feel Safe’ app. The app, solely focusing on the safety of women in the country would be initially
being made available on Google Play Store followed by Apple App Store. The app is said to work when the handset is connected to the internet and even when offline.
That means the app does not need to be induced with safety alarm feature and even works when the screen of the smartphone is locked, in the absence of SIM cards, if there is no Wi-Fi connectivity or if you have not accessed any data plan. After installing the app, all that a user would need to do is to long press the power button for 5 times to let the app automatically send a distress call to the nearest police station along with the person’s relatives.
The app tracks the location of the user to recognize the nearest police station and send an alert to them. Users would have to feed select number of their friends/family members relatives who would get alerts in case of emergency. The app would also be able to track different activities as well, like if the user is walking or running.
This App was unveiled by Mother of ‘Nirbhaya’ Smt. Asha Devi in the presence of dignitaries and leading women and child rights activists.
