Rich Larsen got to know all parents’ nightmare when his daughter Charlen was raped by two of her friends in 2012 at the age of 16. This incident changed Rich’s and his family’s life forever. He Incorporated Mobile Software and started the development of Safyy, an app that could both help prevent rape and to help with a conviction. Now the father and daughter are working together to prevent other families from going through the same.
In May 2017, Mobile Software AS acquired Bipper Communication AS, which owns and has developed the bSafe application. By collaborating the best resources from Safyy and bSafe, an improved bSafe will be launched full scale during Q3 2017.
“This has become our (me and my daughters) mission. For every rape we can prevent, we wouldn’t help only the victim, we would also help to the whole family, save them from many worries and pain, in many years that come. We wanted to develop an app that can help prevent pain, self-harm, anxiety, depression and suicide among your girls and boys,” Rich says.
