Rape prevention techniques have been taught to young women all over the world for centuries. But how many of these techniques today take advantage of recent technological developments which could play a key role in reducing the unacceptably high levels of rape in every country in the world?
In the vast majority of rape situations a woman is alone and physically inferior to her attacker. Therefore, a rape prevention solution which requires brain instead of brawn is required.
Most women carry a mobile phone these days. In many rape situations there would be a few seconds to take a quick photo of the attacker but what’s the point in doing that if all the attacker has to do is take the phone and destroy it?
What is there was a mobile phone app which preserved the photo of the rapist even if he destroyed the phone after a photo was taken? Well, that’s exactly what the SnapMail app does.
With a single click, it takes a photo of the attacker, sends it to the user by e-mail and also saves it on the SnapMail website for later access. The major benefit of this as a rape prevention tool is that even if the attacker steals or destroys the phone, there is nothing he can do to prevent his photo being available later.
As a rape prevention tool this is very powerful. Even the dumbest of rapists would think twice if he knew his photo was going to be available after committing the crime.
What makes SnapMail even more powerful is that all photos have a time stamp and a date stamp, as well as a GPS location stamp showing exactly where and when the photo was taken. You can’t have an alibi when you’ve just been SnapMailed!
SnapMail is free to download and is available in both the App Store and Google Play.
Of course it won’t work in every situation, especially when a woman is ‘jumped’ and has no time to act, but in situations where a woman has even 5 seconds to press one button on her mobile phone it will act as a strong deterrent.
