E-Alert is a mobile app made specifically for people in emerging countries – Nigeria a good example. It features an early warning system, a panic button for your smartphone, which let’s you send a pre-defined alert message with your GPS location via SMS to a specific contact(s). Thus E-Alert quickly notifies your saved emergency contacts whenever you are in a vulnerable and/or emergency situation.

E-Alert is a means to tackling increasing security problems citizens face in developing countries, with goal of making every citizen feel safe in their own country.
