Background & Problem Statement
Domestic Violence resources are usually tailored more towards physical aspects of domestic abuse/violence even though technology abuse is on the rise and becoming an important aspect of surviving domestic abuse/violence.
Other applications tend to contain resources, or ways to create physical safety plans, but not many do both- and the ones that exist mostly focus on the physical aspects rather than the technological.
Most currently existing mobile applications do not include:
- Quick escape function
- Cover application
Interactive cybersecurity assessments
With these defecits in mind, we looked to create a new mobile application to address these gaps, and provide support to victims of technological domestic violence.
Better Days provides cybersecurity/technology abuse related resources, in multiple formats, interative cybersecurity safety plans and assessments, and quick escape function.
Better Days Features:
- Landing page disguising as a weather mobile application
- Interactive Cybersecurity assessments
- Video technical documentation
- Written technical documentation
- Emergency call & messages to connect users with thehotline.org's support line
