A mobile app designed to guarantee personal help and safety in times of crime or emergency called Code9Help has been released in Nigeria.

The new mobile app, which helps in tackling the wave of crime, was developed in the United Kingdom.

What the app does among other things is to send immediate alarm to alert your contacts, as well as SMS and EMAIL to your selected contact and your GPS location shown in the email and SMS.

According to Code9Help’s Marketing and Sales Director, Duke Danson, the sole purpose of the app is to make it easier for you to call for help in problematic situations. Just with a single click of a button you can send SMS, Email and Push alerts to all your contacts.

He said the developers of the mobile app specifically designed it to tackle the issue of insecurity and response to emergencies in Africa. The application is now running in Ghana and Nigeria.

“Code9help is the smart app that guarantees you help anytime you are in trouble. They also believe that it is a very useful tool the police and security organisations in Nigeria can embrace to achieve a crime-free society.

“Right from your mobile phone you can alert your nearest police station or personal security anytime you sense danger.

“Just right on your mobile phone too, you can send an alarm to your doctor and family members in case of medical emergency. Your location can easily be found and you get help on time,” Banson said.

“With just a press of a button on your phone, Code9Help finds you help and it is a sure guard against crimes like kidnapping, robbery, etc: It also guarantees you help in situations like fire outbreak and other emergencies,” Banson added.

The app is now available for download in Nigeria via the Play Sore or the App Store.
