Panic But­ton

Southasia - - BRIEFS -

In­dian Min­istry for Women and Child De­vel­op­ment has taken an ini­tia­tive to en­sure women’s safety. Now, all cell phones in In­dia will be equipped with a built-in panic but­ton to as­sist women when they are in trou­ble. Fac­ing phys­i­cal in­se­cu­rity or ha­rass­ment, women just need to press the par­tic­u­lar but­ton for more than a few sec­onds to get help im­me­di­ately. The but­ton will be avail­able in both ex­ist­ing and new mo­bile phones, while users with old phone sets need to go to nearby deal­ers to in­stall the but­ton.
