Microsoft launches women safety app Guardian for Windows phone

By insightVAS - Fri Dec 27, 5:27 pm

Microsoft has launched a safety app named Guardian for women in India. The app is available exclusively for Windows Phone users in India.

It has ‘track me’ feature which allows the friends and family track them in real-time using Microsoft Windows Azure cloud services and Bing Map APIs.

People can use the app by pressing ‘SOS’ alert button and also connect to security agencies, police and hospitals easily via this app in times of distress. The phone can be traced even if it is broken. The application is capable of one touch video recording that may be used later as evidence.

To use the application users need to add names of friends, family members and security groups to the settings. They can be alerted in an emergency situation. Once this done the phone then sends a distress SMS to all buddy mobiles, notifying them of the emergency along with location details. At the same time the SOS button also sends emails to buddy email IDs and posts to private Facebook groups, if registered, Microsoft said.

Microsoft IT India Managing Director Raj Biyani said that it is a robust personal security app with more safety features and capabilities than any other comparable app available to Indian smartphone users today.

He said that company’s employees made this happen by using their spare time in developing this app. The app was developed in six months.
