Today, the world is growing fast at a very alarming rate. Each second a new technology is developed. We are becoming advanced day by day but this advancement is only in the terms of goods we are using. Our thinking, beliefs and conscious are still the same as it was 100 years ago. People still retains the narrow minded thinking regarding women. “Today I wore a pair of faded old jeans and a plain grey baggy shirt. I hadn’t even taken a shower and I did not put on an ounce of makeup. I grabbed a worn out black oversized jacket to cover myself with even thought, it is warm outside. I have made conscious decisions lately to look like less of what I felt a male would want to see .” ,these lines by Sierra D. Waters shows the pathetic condition of women in the society. These lines clearly shows, how crimes against women affects the mental state of women in this world ? Thus, it is the need of the hour to take some actions against it. Each individual should take some step to prevent crimes against women. As technology rises the crime against women it can also acts as a very powerful equipment to prevent crimes against women. Smart phones are the gifts given to us by the mankind and our aim is to use it as a bodyguard of the women. Keeping this aim of making technology the savior of women in mind, we have developed an android app which helps the woman in need. This application sends the danger message to all the registered numbers. “Instant identification “is the unique feature of this application which helps the women to ensure that their pickup is totally safe. This feature captures the image of the driver and checks whether he has some crime record against him. Other features are “Sharing user’s location”, “Dangeralarm” etc. ”Domestic Violence Report” feature connects women to the national women help website where women’s can lodge complaint against domestic violence. This project is developed in Java Development Kit using Android Studio.
