Despite the “infrastructure” developments in India to ensure women safety (the efficiency of which is certainly questionable), what remains an unresolved state of mind of thousands of people, men and women, is this question.
As the crime rates were not going down, everyone needs a safety tool to protect themselves from the random attacks. Personal safety has become an issue of importance for everyone, especially for women.
A good percentage of women in India have faced an assault at some point in time in their life or the other. There are lots of analysis as to what provokes these assaults and why it is never fully curbed.
Instead of wasting time trying to theorise such assaults, wise women have now started taking measures to ensure their dignity is never compromised by using mobile apps, pepper sprays, self-defence methods etc. But as Indians are moving towards technology trends, mobile phones and mobile apps for safety has become one of the major segment for several companies who are offering safety apps for mobile phones which can be used at the time of emergency or threats.
There is abundance of safety apps which are in the market to help women during an emergency!
But all the apps require manual intervention. If Women had time to take out the phone from their bag, unlock it and then press a button/alarm, they might as well, call their friend and ask for help right?
And most of the apps have Panic buttons/shaking etc to alert their family/friends, Which has caused more chaos than any good most times, by sending out an alarm by an error/fault.
