Nirbhaya’s mother launches ‘I Feel Safe’ app at DU
Asha Devi, mother of Nirbhaya, launched a personal safety smartphone application named ‘I Feel Safe’ at University of Delhi’s North Campus Convention Centre. The app was developed by Nirbhaya Jyoti Trust (NJT) in collaboration with a private company. Badri Singh, Nirbhaya’s father was also present at the function.
“I greatly appreciate the support and motivation that the youth of this country and leaders rendered to the Nirbhaya Jyoti Trust and the cause of Indian women in the last four years. It is my fervent wish that every girl should be able to live a wholesome life and step out of home without the fear of molestation and violence. I appeal to everyone to download this app as I think that even if we are able to protect one girl from getting raped, it would matter a lot. I am happy that NJT and others have come together to develop this app,” said Asha Devi. “My daughter might have been alive had there been a personal safety app like this,” she added.
Smartphone users can simply press the power button five times to activate an alarm. The app then automatically notifies the user’s emergency contacts with the exact location of the user. It also makes an automatic call to the national emergency number 100.
Moreover, it works even if the screen of the phone is locked or the SIM card has been removed or there is no access to Internet. The app works across India on all mobile networks and sends near real-time updates about the location of the mobile user.
