And then, in my constant search for a perfect helpline I was recommended the use of the VithU app in my Android device which sends out danger alert messages to the pre-set emergency numbers. With it's attractive presentation, the app looked intriguing enough to try and check if it solves the purpose. And it indeed does.
Using VithU was an easy task by okaying not more than a couple of permissions as per my phone settings and the app kept sending emergency texts along with my satellite location to my set SOS numbers till the time I deactivated the alarm.
Share your story and alerts for the crime reality show 'Gumrah' do a great job in spreading awareness regarding crimes in society and create a sense of alertness.
While the app has made it to my instant widget, it's permission seeking for GPS use and activation could be seen as a worry some angle. Also the constant need of internet access and good network are the major barriers that can be seen as an issue, not with immediate solutions though.
Nothing like a single press app could work wonders.
However, VithU is the least you can have to gather instant help through difficult situations. Make sure you have it on your phone and on your daughter's and sister's too!
Here's the link to download this app for Android users:
