SnapMail App as a tool to prevent Stalking

Stalking can come in various guises, but the net effect is nearly always the same – it leaves the victim feeling scared, threatened and vulnerable.

You are being stalked when a person repeatedly watches, follows or harasses you, making you feel afraid or unsafe. A stalker can be someone you know, a past boyfriend or girlfriend or a stranger. While the actual legal definition varies from one state to another, here are some examples of what stalkers may do:

  • Show up at your home or place of work unannounced or uninvited.
  • Send you unwanted text messages, letters, emails and voicemails.
  • Leave unwanted items, gifts or flowers.
  • Constantly call you and hang up.
  • Use social networking sites and technology to track you.
  • Spread rumors about you via the internet or word of mouth.
  • Make unwanted phone calls to you.
  • Call your employer or professor.
  • Wait at places you hang out.
  • Use other people as resources to investigate your life. For example, looking at your facebook page through someone else’s page or befriending your friends in order to get more information about you.
  • Damage your home, car or other property.

It is important for a stalking victim to keep as much evidence as possible to be able to demonstrate to investigators the nature and frequency of the stalking.  The SnapMail app can prove a useful tool in this regard.

By recording a photograph of the stalker and having the photographs time stamped and location stamped a victim can build up a comprehensive dossier of the stalkers behaviour.  As well as providing a record it can also prove a useful deterrent if/when the stalker learns that he/she is leaving a trail of evidence.

Keep your SnapMail app handy – it could save your life!
