This hands-free security app is voice activated, so if you scream and your phone is not accessible, help will be called. Based in the UK, startup One Scream is a mobile solution to personal safety. The phone does not need to have any buttons pressed -- if it registers a panicked scream (which is often a woman's first reaction in an unexpected and distressing situation), it will notify the police with an automated message. This message will inform the authorities of the users location and name, ensuring help is sent when it is most needed.

The hands-free security app was developed with women in mind, and would come in handy especially for those who due to school, work or other circumstances often find themselves travelling alone at night.
