He said if the phone is stolen, then the picture and the location of the thief will be sent to the emergency numbers when the person tries to switch it off.

“The app has received good feedback on the PlayStore and has been downloaded by more than 1,000 people. The rating has also gone up to 4.3,” added Singh.

The students said they have received good feedback from the SSP and further strategies will be worked out to make the app more effetive.
