Wycombe Women’s Aid has become aware of a new¬†free app called Hollie Guard, designed to protect women from possible danger. It is supplied by the Hollie Gazzard Trust

Hollie Guard turns your smartphone into an advanced personal safety device at the touch of a button. If in danger simply shake your phone to generate an alert, your location, audio and video evidence of the incident will automatically be sent to your emergency contact via text and email. Shake it again and it sends out a high pitched alarm and the flash starts to strobe, in order to attract maximum attention.
