bSafe App with Groundbreaking Features
January 8, 2019- “I called my brother and shouted on the phone: -You must help me, Charlen has been raped.” Those are the terrifying words of Rich Larsen; a father who just found out his teenage daughter was raped. In 2012, Rich’s daughter Charlen was raped by two of her friends. The incident changed his and his family’s lives forever.
Today, Rich and Charlen are working together to prevent other women and families from going through the same nightmare with the world-leading safety and security app bSafe. In the fight against rape and sexual abuse, bSafe developed voice alarm activation, live streaming and automatically audio and video recording.
According to RAINN, sexual assaults happen ever 98 seconds in the United States. 1 in 5 women over 18 years of age are raped or attempted rape. At college campuses 1 in 4 women are raped or attempted rape.
“We wanted to develop an app that can help prevent pain, self-harm, anxiety, depression, and suicide among young girls and boys,” says founder and CEO Rich Larsen and his daughter and Co-Founder Charlen Larsen

This bSafe app is providing brand new opportunities, because both audio and video recordings provide new insights into what actually happened. This app works deterrent with its siren-like alarm, an alarm that will make the attacker think twice about doing what he has initially planned on doing.
The supplier of the app, Mobile Safety Technology Inc. has developed pioneering technology that will make women safer. The app includes new features such as voice activation, live streaming and downloads of recordings, which makes the app unique worldwide.
Users can activate the SOS button by voice even if their mobile phone is placed inside their pocket, purse or jacket. They don’t need to press the SOS button. Their guardians can see and hear everything in real-time through live streaming. Both audio and video recordings record up to 5 minutes. When activating the SOS button, the guardians will receive an audio alarm and they will be able to see the users location and see and hear everything that is happening in real-time in area where they are. Everything is automatically recorded by using bSafe’s audio and video system.
Both audio and video recordings are instantly sent to the guardians simultaneously; therefore no information is lost, even if the perpetrator destroys your mobile phone. bSafe has additional features like Follow me, Fake call and Timer alarm.
Everyone who downloads the app receives a 7-Day free trial with all features included and connect to the AppStore/GooglePlay. Users have the option to pay $7.99 per month or an $5.99 per month/$71.88 per year.

bSafe for college campus
The company has developed a platform for public safety to make college campus and cities safer. Mobile Safety Technology Inc has recently signed an MOU with Drexel University in Philadelphia and had initial meetings with the Attorney General`s office in Pennsylvania about College Campus Safety.
The App Could Have Saved Them
Two sexually assaulted women Andrea Voldum and Charlen Larsen who have struggled with a lot of pain, self- harm, anxiety, depression, and suicide thoughts say that the new bSafe app will be groundbreaking in the fight against rape and other types of abuse.
“If I had downloaded such an app on my cell phone, I could have alarmed my guardians when I noticed that the drug I was given without my consent started kicking in,” Andrea Voldum says.
Now the two young women want to share their own stories and help prevent what they have gone through.
