Personal Safety Apps That Make A Difference
In today’s society, there are so many dangerous situations that students and young women are forced to endure. In an age of heightened aggression and sexuality, crimes against young people are more prevalent than ever.
Crimes Against Women
According to the 2008 National Crime Victimization Survey, as reported by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, more than 75% of the women who reported a rape were under 25 years old at the time of their assault; more than 25% of the victims of reported rapes are between 18 and 24 years old.
Crimes Against Female College Students
It is estimated that 1 in 4 college women will be the victims of a sexual assault during her academic career. Stalking is another form of victimization common to college women. The NIJ report estimates that 13% of college women are victims of a stalking incident at least once during their college years. A Justice Department report suggests that just 17% of college women who were stalked reported it to police.
School bullying refers to all types of bullying done on school property, whether it is peer-to-peer bullying, bullying of younger children by older children, or bullying in which a teacher is either a victim or a culprit. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, nearly 33% of all students aged 12 – 18 reported having been bullied at school in 2007, some almost daily.
It is critically important to speak with your children, friends and other parents to teach your kids to be as safe as possible. One way many parents are “fighting back” is by adding a Personal Safety App to their family’s smart phones. These apps have numerous safety functions that add an increased level of security to any Android or Apple device, and many of these downloadable apps are free.
A safety app can add a “Virtual Escort” function to your child’s cell phone. An app can add the ability of live streaming video, so that if your son or daughter is in danger, they just tap their safety app, and their entire situation is recorded, and immediately sent to your phone with an alert, so you can respond immediately and appropriately to the situation. These apps also work as evidence, since all secured data is recorded and stored in the Cloud, and can be accessed at any time for police, an attorney or proof of what happened.
Below are three Personal Safety apps that you can download for free and can help to keep you, your family and friends safer. These apps will provide your mobile device with security functions so that you can immediately be in touch with family and friends, if ever faced with a dangerous situation.
