Whether you are one of those solo backpackers who love travelling the world or you are just one of those late comers in the night, you will often find yourself feeling a bit uncomfortable, especially when you sense that you are being stalked. At that time what you can do is get away from that place or call your friends. In a situation where anything can happen even in a blink of an eye, it’s better to have something that can help you reach out to your friends and family within a few taps.
Fortunately, if you use an Android device, you have some great apps that can help you when you are in danger. These apps help you connect to your friends so you can let them know about your situation and find a way out of it. Here are four such apps that you can use on your device:
1. SOS – Stay Safe!
If you ever feel like you are being stalked, SOS – Stay Safe! is an app that can help you. It lets you quickly and easily connect to your loved ones with the shake of your device. By calibrating the shakes and your device, you can send an emergency message to your chosen contacts without the stalker knowing anything. Not only does it send a plain message, but it sends out a recorded clip of the audio, the battery level of your device, and your location so they know where you are at that particular point of time.
That information is more than enough for your friends to find you and to get you out of that situation. The app is available for free on the Google Play store.
2. One Touch SOS
What One Touch SOS lets you do is send out your location information to your chosen contacts with a single touch. That way you do not have to rush around finding your friends in your phonebook, typing the message and then sending it out. That is just not possible when you are sweating because of the danger you are in. Let One Touch SOS do everything for you with a single tap.
You can get the app without any cost from the Google Play store.
3. SOS Emergency Rescue
As the name suggests, the SOS Emergency Rescue app rescues you from any unwanted situation and makes sure you are safe and sound. Instead of sending out the location details or the voice clip, the app puts the images of the chosen contacts on your screen, and then you can tap on any to call them. It is designed especially for elder people who may have weak eyesight and cannot go through the menus to find their family members. The user just needs to tap on the contact, and he or she will be connected to that person within a few seconds.
You can grab the app for free from the Google Play store.
4. VithU: V Gumrah Initiative
The VithU: V Gumrah Initiative app lets you send out your location information to your chosen contacts by just pressing the Power button two times. What’s so great about the app is it sends out your updated location info every two minutes for your friends to know what way you are heading so they can find you. The predefined message in the app says – “I am in danger. I need help. Please follow my location.”
It helps your friends know your exact location by receiving the location details every two minutes. If you think this is the app you were looking for, get it from the Google Play store at no cost.
While nobody wants a situation where they feel uncomfortable and helpless, things can just happen, and the best way to keep yourself safe and sound is to have at least one of the above apps installed on your device. At least they will help you reach out to your contacts for them to find and help you.
