Uber, a popular map directions app, has recently installed a brand new “SOS” feature that allows user’s to make quick and easy calls to the local emergency services. this all came into play after a controversial sexual assault case in India 2 months ago. This feature brings safety to the forefront of digital apps as digital technology evolves in accessibility, it’s only a mater of time till emergency services progresses also. The addition of this app was in retaliation to the growing amount of sexual assaults in India. in an effort to aid and keep it’s users safe, they added this feature. Uber’s stance on this seems to be useless since if you’re using their app, you’re likely on a phone where you could then call emergency services easily; but it’s not just for accessibility but to to support the on going problem of women being raped and sexually assaulted in India. This app is going in the right direction of bringing awareness to overlooked societal issues,besides, it’s never bad to be too cautious.
