Abstract
Nowadays, women security and safety are the main issues and the challenge to reduce the violence against them is needed day by day. The fear inside women for sexual abusement, getting raped and physical assaultation is growing, due to hiking rate of crime at every moment. Keeping these mishaps in mind, an idea of developing a security application based smartphone is taking into account. The application development is the main consideration as increased Smartphone users, with the sensitivity of inclusion of everyday information useful in day to day activities and even for security. So, this paper presents an Android Smartphone application “Vsecure” and the way by which it acts as a 24x7 personal safety and security. It is primarily developed a unique approach for strengthening woman’s personal security and safety. Even though, this application is also helpful for older people, senior citizens and children. Some special buttons are also provided to generate an emergency alerts to the caregiver, including nearest Hospitals, Fire Station or Police Station so that the user can easily get an instant help.
