Designed for women, the mobile app WayGuard transmits the user's geographic location to a coordination center. The latter, in case of emergency, can alert rescue services. WayGuard includes additional services, such as a chat feature, that allows users to talk with friends and family, who can track their location and be notified when they arrive safely at home. The app also provides prevention tips: how to plan your trip home and decline unwelcome advances.
