Abstract : The security of girls and women is a serious issue faced by society. Crimes against women such as sexual abuse, domestic violence, or eve teasing are growing in number day by day. In such a gloomy situation, a smartphone can be looked into as a great help. This project attempts to create an Android app that can help to protect women in any situation they might face in their everyday life. We have designed, implemented, and tested an Android application that comprises various security measures which can be explored by women in a few steps on the screen, and can get quick and easy access to help. It uses GPS location tracking to provide a simple and fast way for the registered contacts to know that the user is in trouble and for them to reach the user easily. It also provides safety features such as a GPS tracking of the user, sending help messages to the registered numbers of the app, and emergency contact numbers which can be used to directly contact via a voice call to trusted people of users whose numbers are saved in the application.
