Course Outline

One of the most effective self-defense tools is something you carry with you every day—your cell phone. In addition to using your phone to call 911, you can also choose from a variety of self-defense apps that are available for both Android phones and iPhones. Features that you might look for when selecting an app include:

  • Activating a loud siren, flashing colored lights, and your phone’s flashlight simultaneously to draw as much attention as possible
  • Requiring you to enter a passcode to turn the app off
  • Letting you send out a distress call via social media, including Twitter, Facebook, and text messaging
