  • Users will be able to place a call for help through an ‘SOS’ alert button and also connect to security agencies, police and hospitals easily via this app in times of crisis.

  • Helps women in distress by alerting their friends, families, as well as it is available as an integrated solution for Police or security agencies, which can monitor distress SOS calls and provide help through a portal.

  • The app allows us to add multiple buddies who will be alerted in emergency situations. It will let them opt out in case they’re not so willing to take our SOS call.

  • The SOS messages will continue to go out even if our phone is destroyed. The best bit is that the SOS button can also send emails and post to private Facebook groups. The application is capable of one touch video recording that may be used as evidence.
