Apps that do it right when it comes to sexual assault help

Siri, I was abused, what do I do?

Recently I published a Medium story about how Siri gives no meaningful information tailored to my locality in India when I ask her for sexual assault help. This is despite the same keyword searches giving me results on Google.

Technology must be altered to suit local needs, if not, it becomes redundant.

So I thought I’d look at how other apps handle this. Let’s take a look.›

1. Tumblr.

Tumblr does more than give you blog posts tagged with keywords like “rape”. It also offers you help when it thinks you’re searching for content relating to rape.

Try it yourself: Search for “Rape” in the app’s search box.
