One Click Safety

One Click Safety is a student-developed app. Its idea is to make users feel and be safer with only one click. Our app includes three buttons. The first button starts a loud alarm that can only be switched off by entering their chosen passcode. The second sends the users location to the person’s emergency contacts with a pre-configured message telling them the user is in potential danger. The last button automatically takes a picture from both the back and front cameras and sends them to the user’s emergency contacts and saves the pictures on the user’s device.
