    19 September 13 | Before using Safetipin, I had felt unsafe before, but didn't really understand why. Using the app this last month has really helped me understand what makes a place safe or unsafe, and what we can do to fix it.

    19 September 13 | When we were introduced to the Safetipin app, I had my doubts about the practicality of the application and whether or not it will be able to improve the safety situation. But when I personally did the safety audits, standing at particular public spots and rating the place on a safety scale, I realized that yes this app will be great in providing safety level information about places, whether or not certain places should be visited during dark, etc. I really hope this application gains the popularity and usage it deserves!

    19 September 13 | Safetipin is very easy and fun to use. It provides a lot of useful information for everyone, not just women and children. For example, using it, you can easily find out where the closest auto stands are, or the closest 24-chemist, and even the closest ATM. If you ever need to locate these, you can just use the app and find it. Itís great because you feel like youíre being helped and also helping each other!

Safetipin is pleased to share that we will be working to collect large scale data in three cities as part of a larger project in partnership with UN Habitat. We will be conducting safety audit using Safetipin. The Safetipin safety audit has been designed on the basis of research done on safety audits done in countries across the world. The safety audit rubric measures factors such as lighting, openness, visibility, presence of security, presence of people and women, nearness of public transport and the state of the walk path. Safety audits conducted in Delhi and other cities have been through crowdsourcing and using trained auditors. While we will continue to use crowdsourced safety audits done by users, in this project, we will be supplementing this with photographs taken across the city after dark. These photographs will be used to assess parameters from the audits. This kind of data collection will be a first of its kind. The plan is to mount cameras on cars to capture pictures of the city at night which will be assessed on the safety audit parameters. The three cities where data will be collected are Delhi, Bogota and Nairobi. In each of the cities we will tie up with partners both for data collection and sharing the findings. One of our partners in this endeavour is Uber , the cab company who will be supporting Safetipin in collecting the data. Their partner drivers will be trained to collect the data using the app and a camera device in the car. We are planning to partner with city stakeholders in the collection of the data and usage of the data. The aim of this data collection is to work towards improving women's safety in cities around the world. While our entry point is improving the safety of women, we believe that improvement in these parameters will enhance the safety of all people in cities. Safetipin is a free mobile application that can be used on Android, IOS and Windows platforms. It is has an online tool that can be used view the safety data that has been collected in different places.

On 5th December, 2014 in New Delhi a woman was raped in a cab. The incident came a few days before the second anniversary of the 16th December rape case where another woman was fatally assaulted inside a moving vehicle. The incidences of crimes against women in Delhi are very high according to the NCRB report, and have particularly gone up in the past two years. Most women in this city and I am one of them, feel that their mobility is severely restricted due to the fear of violence. The cab in this case was registered with an international cab aggregator app called Uber. The Uber Case as it is now called has led to widespread criticism of the policies of the company for their lax procedures on checking on drivers past offences. The driver of the cab drove the girl to an isolated spot and raped her. The case makes a strong demand for bringing systemic changes so that companies perform mandated background checks on drivers and forgery of documents can be nipped in the bud. While strengthening these systems is crucial, it is also useful to work on broader issues such as making our cities safer and more comfortable for women to use - improving public spaces in cities. The condition of roads, the street lights, visible policing, the presence of people, and availability of public transport are all factors that impact the safety and accessibility of public spaces. . To understand the safety concerns along the route that the Uber driver took that fateful night, a safety audit was conducted of the route using the Safetipin App. We take this route as an example to understand what we can do to make our cities safer for women. Safetipin is a map-based mobile phone application which works to make our communities and cities safer by providing safety-related information collected by users. At the core of the app is the Safety Audit. It consists of a set of 9 parameters that together contribute to the perception of safety. The nine parameters include - lighting, openness, visibility, crowd, security, walk path, public transport, gender diversity and feeling of safety. Each audit results in a pin on the specific location where the audit was performed along with the time and date of the audit.   Physical Infrastructure The stretch from Dhaula Kuan to Mayapuri has very few bus stops and hence people have to walk long stretches to get to a bus stop to avail public transport. Also very few autos stop on this stretch. The condition of the walk path along the Delhi Cantonment area is very poor and kilometres of the pavement have been dug up. Further down the route from Moti Nagar via Zakhira to Inderlok also has very poor pavements, in most places, especially in Zakhira the pavements are absent and pedestrians have to walk on the main road with the motor vehicles.  Lighting The whole stretch from Dhaula Kuan up to the Naraina Flyover is poorly lit. The bus stops on this route have poor lighting; some stops that are well lit are only due to digital advertisement boards present at the stands. An obscure and unmarked bus stop just off the flyover at Dhaula Kuan only has light from the stalls of the street vendors. The bus stops in Naraina, Kirti Nagar, Maya Puri, MotiNagar, Zakhira and Inderlok were deserted and had very poor lighting. The metro stations were fairly lit but the boundaries and parking lots were dark, At Kirti Nagar the area just outside the Station has garbage dumps and men urinate openly on the pavement. The Inderlok Metro Station has multiple entrances and the area under the Metro station is poorly lit. Due to the winter season the visibility is further restricted by the smog Accessibility The infrastructure of the route is not favourably built to increase accessibility. For example for people with disabilities we found no ramps. Also for the general users the pavements were very poor and at most places pedestrians would have to walk on the main road. Gender Usage of spaces The gender usage of spaces was somewhat diverse. There were mostly male passengers, street vendors and auto drivers. There were also some women waiting at the bus stops, inside the metro stations and outside the metro stations for private cabs. Families of homeless people were seen sleeping outside Pratap Nagar and Inderlok metro stations. The gender usage on the outer ring road is not diverse, in all the spots the female auditors were the only women on the road, bus stops and gas stations. Visible policing and police patrolling Check posts were mostly absent and 4 PCR vans were observed patrolling near the MotiBagh Gurudwara Nanakpura bus stop and Inderlok metro station. CISF officials were seen inside the metro stations. The Gurgaon‬źNaraina subway was guarded by a contractual worker. The last police patrol on a bike was observed before the Dhaula Kuan flyover from here on the auditors saw no police patrols till the Kirti Nagar Metro Station which had police inside the station and not outside. The Delhi Cantonment area was also not policed. At Zakhira we saw no guards or police patrols. The area had a deserted look and only had one auto and a few male pedestrians. The auditors then found police presence inside the Inderlok Metro station. The areas under the metro station had no police.  Signage The sign boards for directions were clearly visible on the ring road stretching from Kirti Nagar ‬ź Naraina (Industrial area), Dhaula Kuan Passage, Dhaula Kuan complete stretch, MotiBagh and New Moti Bagh. The emergency helpline numbers were found to be displayed inside the bus running on route number 442 and metro from Pratap Nagar till Inderlok metro station on the route. The bus stop after the Dhaula Kuan Flyover had no signage, we stopped to ask the men standing there and they told us that it was a bus stop. The ‘Last mile’ Connectivity As the evening grew later there were very few autos and rickshaws outside the metro stations. No metro feeder buses were seen. On the outer ring road no autos stopped when we tried to hail one. At Kirti Nagar Metro Station there were rickshaws that were going to Kirti Nagar and Moti Nagar only.   The Safetipin App is a useful tool to clearly define exactly what needs to be improved to make public spaces safer and more accessible for women and others.
