Far be it from me to ever promote anything associated with Dr. Phil because he normally just weirds me out, but I heard about this recently and thought it would be good to share. They’ve developed a free app that is disguised to look like a regular news app but will allow the user to send a pre-determined message to selected contacts in the event of an emergency, connect victims with local domestic violence resources, and can even discreetly record if something is going on. It’s new so I think they are still working some kinks out and getting all the features up and running but I think it may be a good resource if you or someone you know is in an abusive relationship, whether it be physical, sexual, or emotional abuse.
It’s important to mention that this will not work for everyone, especially for those with particularly tech-savvy abusers who may hear about this app or be very vigilant about checking/controlling their victim’s phone use.
