Guardian enables users to switch on a ‘track me’ feature in the app that lets friends and family track them in real-time using Microsoft Windows Azure cloud services and Bing Map APIs, the company said in a release.
It took more than six months for a team of Microsoft employees in India to develop the safety app in the Microsoft Garage, the company said.
Microsoft Garage is a global employee innovation initiative that gives Microsoft employees an outlet to explore ideas.
“Guardian is a robust personal security app with more safety features and capabilities than any other comparable app available to Indian smartphone users today,” Microsoft IT India Managing Director Raj Biyani said.
