December 16 2013 Nirbhaya incident shocked each one of us to the core. Being WOMEN and DEVELOPERS, we wanted to come up with a tool, to power women gain control over any form of assault.

Help is a click away
SHEild user can setup emergency contacts and integrate the app with social accounts. The user will also have a hardware device(a wearable device). In an adverse situation, user can press a button on hardware device to send alert messages to the emergency contact and to post on twitter.
