However, we recognize that there is need to provide necessary system/devices to overcome these issues. Various applications and algorithm are proposed to overcome these issue by providing the android app to user like Abhaya, Raksha, and Fight back through which user can tap the button on app whenever they feel vulnerable at public place or when the need arises.
