Konbola is an Android mobile app that can help you in a crisis. It sends out an SMS with your current location (with mobile location and GPS settings enabled).
Imagine there is a robbery in your house, you’ve run into serious health issue or you need to reach out to your friends. The app works by you pressing the power button 4 times on a selected contact. Your emergency contact(s) can be configured and added manually from phone address book. The basic idea is to inform your closed ones that you need help by sharing your location so they can either call you or arrive at that location to help you.
How it Works
There are two ways to add contacts. You can add contacts manually or choose from your contact address book. The ones who are selected will show in your contact list and can be reached when in trouble/emergency. The app remains signed in unless you do otherwise. Irrespective of the fact that a mobile is restarted or shutdown, the app stays logged in.
To send alerts, simply press the power button four times. It sends an SMS with your current location details to the contact. In case the location isn’t shared, only the SMS will be sent.
In a country where security issues are always there, whether you’re leaving for work or school, an app like Konbola can prove instrumental in notifying near and dear ones in case of any developing emergency.
You can download the app from the Play Store for Android devices here.
