Sekura it's a women's safety app, that was created based on a personal experience of feeling afraid walking alone at night. Street harassment and the feeling of being unsafe in the streets limits women’s mobility and access to public spaces.
Sekura is a mobile app offering 4 buttons: send your location to a few contacts, call an emergency number, fake an incoming call and make a loud sound of police alarm. Sekura stays on screen to be accessible instantly and has an option to mark dark streets.
