Private and anonymous data
With victims, families and witnesses
App-Elles® meets the main needs of help and support when someone is faced with a crisis situation. Whether it's a victim or a witness, this app is designed to help people save time and find useful resources and contacts easily. App-Elles® is designed by security experts and professional technology designers in collaboration with specialists who work daily to eliminate violence against women. With App-Elles®, you can alert a friend or a family member quickly and discreetly, or find and call a helpline, a emergency service such as 911 or 112 in just one click.
Girls and women need to feel safe and be protected against violence. For this we have designed a warning function with an innovating Streaming protocol. When you trigger an alert, the phone's GPS and microphone are activated instantly and an alert is automatically sent to the preselected contacts. Thanks to the information provided by the alert, your contacts can then call the emergency services on your behalf and give them specific details about your location, your health status and the type of crisis situation. They can also call you to make sure help is on the way. They can locate you and reach you if necessary. After the crisis, audio and location tracking data can be used to provide evidence in a criminal or private investigation.
Victims and families need to find help and support. Both victims and witnesses of violence need help and guidance as to how to react, defend and heal themselves. To do this, we have created the world's first support resource database, easily accessible within this app. App-Elles® uses a web service protocol to constantly update its directories with our servers. App-Elles® thus provides easy access to helplines and helpful resources. More than 900 hotlines and addresses are already listed in many countries. We are constantly updating our directories with new contacts. By selecting a zone in the settings, you have access to the directory of help resources closest to you. With a single click on a hotline, its phone number is automatically dialed for you.
Alert your trusted contacts
Live Audio Streaming
When an alert is triggered an audio recording and live audio streaming of voices and other noises around are set in motion. The contacts who receive this stream on their mobile can return and listen to the beginning of this recording then resume the live stream at any time thanks to an instant replay function.
During the alert, the app also tracks the GPS position of the mobile and shows the real-time position and movements of the person in distress to the chosen contacts (address, streets names, time and day).
All the information and data collected during the alert are stored on a secure server and the user and his / her contacts have access to it for 14 days before it is completely deleted from (you still keep a copy on your cell phone).
Call the emergency services
You can dial 911 from the app, it will link you to an emergency dispatch office which can send emergency responders to the caller's location in an emergency. In approximately 96% of the US territory, the enhanced 9-1-1 system automatically pairs caller numbers with a physical address.
