SnapMail as a Rape Prevention device

Here is a link to a good article written by Mary Walker, a partner of ours, describing how SnapMail may be used as a Rape Prevention device:

It’s well worth a read.

Click here to download the SnapMail app.  When you download it to your mobile phone the app takes a photo and sends it to you by e-mail and uploads it to the SnapMail website with a single click.  In many cases, a potential attacker will not follow through with a crime when he realises that his photo has been captured and saved, regardless of whether he steals or damages the mobile phone that took the photograph.

Click here to learn about SnapMail Emergency, the premium version of the app.  When you take a photo using the premium version of the app you receive an e-mail with a link to this photo.  You have 5 minutes to click this link.  If you don’t click this link within 5 minutes SnapMail sends an SOS text and SOS e-mail to 5 of your Friends or Family.

All SnapMail photos are time stamped and date stamped and they also contain a GPS location.  This is powerful evidence in the event that a crime is committed.

SnapMail would have prevented rape of British teenager and killings of British couple in Thailand

A young British backpacker was abducted by motorists on her way to the shops at 1.30am on Tuesday 26th of May 2015 after an evening out partying with her friends.  She left the restaurant where she was having dinner on the Nanachart Road in the Kanchanaburi district, 76 miles left of Bangkok, and decided to walk to the shops on her own when she was accosted by a group of motorists.  The girl, 19, was then attacked and abducted, later to be raped by two men from the gang of motorists.

The abductors also stole her valuables and finally dumped her in a market in the Mueang district.

The victim was visiting the area with a group of tourists and stayed at a well-known local resort.

The two men have confessed to their crime, according to Police Major General Kamolsanti Klanbus, Chief of Kanchanaburi police and the victim is already back home in the UK.

There is a lot of diplomatic secrecy surrounding the incident as it is believed that it is a sensitive issue and could affect the tourism trade in Thailand.

The attack comes just eight months after British backpackers Hannah Witheridge, 23, and David Miller, 24, were murdered on a Thai beach.  The couple had met as they travelled around South East Asia on a holiday of a lifetime and were targeted during a walk on the beach.

Burmese migrants Zaw Lin and Win Zaw Htun, both 21, were arrested two weeks after the semi-naked bodies of the pair were found.

The horrifying killings fuelled tense relations between tourists and the Thai government, after its Prime Minister claimed ‘beautiful’ British girls weren’t safe in bikinis.

Officials estimate 860,000 British tourists travel to Thailand each year, and the Foreign Office has warned of the dangers of the East-Asian country.

A travel warning says British nationals ‘have been victims of vicious, unprovoked attacks by individuals and gangs’.

It adds: ‘Violent sexual assaults and robberies against both men and women are reported regularly.’

In such an atmosphere of violence, uncertainty and crime, it is advisable that British tourists, especially backpackers, use modern technology to counteract any possibility of being abducted, attacked, raped, robbed or even killed.  The SnapMail app, installed free on any Android or iOS smartphone, will within seconds, take a picture of the attacker / criminal and email it to the user as well as saving it on the SnapMail website.  If the user is also subscribed to the SnapMail Emergency service (which he or she is highly recommended to do) then five minutes later, if he or she is unable to do anything else because of further attacks, then their friends will be sent emergency texts and emails with a message to come to their rescue or contact the police.  The victim’s geo-location will also be highlighted.

In the cases mentioned above, the 19-year-old’s abduction early on Tuesday morning and the murder of Hannah and David could have been avoided as the Thai police would have been informed on time and with prior knowledge of the young people’s latest geo-location, would have come to their rescue.  Moreover, the victims could have warned their attackers earlier on about the impact of having their pictures taken and sent to the SnapMail website: this might have deterred them from committing their crimes.

The SnapMail app can be downloaded FREE by clicking here.  It could save your life.

How SnapMail can help prevent a Rape

A woman walking home on her own after a night out is vulnerable to an attack and rape.  The SnapMail app has been designed to act as a rape deterrent and hopefully protect the woman.

With current mobile phones the woman could take a photograph of the rapist before he raped her.  But what use is that if he steals her phone?  If she could have e-mailed the photo to someone, such as her friend or even herself, so that even if her phone was taken she would have a photo of the rapist, that would certainly prove a deterrent to the rapist, but there’s no way she would have the time to take a photo and attach it to an e-mail, before typing the e-mail address and hitting the Send button.

This is where the SnapMail App comes in very handy!

With just a single click, the woman takes a photo and e-mails it to herself.  And not only does she e-mail it to herself, the image is also uploaded to her own private account on the SnapMail website.

What would a potential rapist do if he was told “You’ve been SnapMailed.  Your photo has been e-mailed and also saved on the SnapMail website.”
