To Ensure Women Safety, Mobiles Will Come With Panic Button From 2017

In a strive to ensure women safety, Government has now asked all mobile manufacturers to launch mobile handsets with a panic button, starting from 2017.

So, now women can easily summon for help by pressing the panic button. With a long press a set of buttons, users can send out an alert to the user’s family or friends along with their current location.
