Whether you’re in immediate trouble or get separated from friends during a night out and don’t know how to get home, having these apps on your phone can reduce your risk and bring assistance when you need it. Although several were originally developed for students to reduce the risk of sexual assault on campus, they are suitable for all women:
This app is a must-have for any woman with an iPhone. Circle of 6 is also useful for high school students or any female of any age who wants an easy-to-use system to alert friends when she’s in a threatening situation. As fully functional as those apps which require you to subscribe to a monthly – yearly service plan, Circle of 6 has an unobtrusive screen that’s simple to operate. Two taps will send out one of three predetermined text messages to 6 contacts of your choice including a call for help getting home that automatically includes an address and map of your exact location, or a request for a phone call from you to break up a tense situation. The app also contains pre-programmed national hotline numbers and a local number you can customize for campus security, police or 911. Circle of 6 is the winner of the Department of Health and Human Services / White House “Apps Against Abuse” Challenge and its four developers have significant expertise in the fields of sexual violence prevention, mobile technology, graphic design and healthy relationship building.

Fight Back App
The installation process is overly long, tedious and confusing. Most important of all, the registered information is not verified at any step, leaving the system vulnerable to misuse. But the emergency alert system in itself works extremely well. Numerous apps that are available communicate distress signals or messages with equal ease and accuracy, and are easier to install and use. The app would be more discoverable and trustworthy if listed on app stores. Using an emergency alert system to crowdsource data about crimes and violence is a novel initiative. This data is made publicly available and could be used like other citizen data initiatives to combat social evils. The app, however, is far from perfect for such critical uses.
