SEOUL, July 25 (Korea Bizwire) – A smartphone application “Who’s There?,” developed and launched by a start-up venture “Star Sun Moon” is gaining popularity among single-woman households as it proves to be highly effective in preventing crimes involving delivery-posed criminals.
“Who’s There?” is an application to help women, elderly and children who are left alone at home to quickly cope with situations where a suspicious man tries to enter the house with evil intent, posing as a delivery man, a plumber or such. The app, launched last month, rapidly turned popular as it surpassed the 10,000 download mark in just a month from the launch.
The app is very easy to use. The user can set time (one, three or five minutes and so on) on the application and press the start button before he or she opens the door for the unexpected visitor. If the visitor is harmless, the user can just press “stop” button to halt the running clock. But when the visitor turns out to be an assailant, the user will not be able to press the stop button within the set time, and the application will automatically contact the family members, set emergency contact or 911 for help.
The CEO of the start-up which developed the application said, “There have been increases in crimes involving delivery-guised assailants as a result of a recent hike in the number of single households. The simple smartphone app will help you quickly ask help in dangerous situations and also relieve from anxiety and fear of being alone at home.”
