This compilation by PositiveNaija aims to provide a reliable guide on Nigerian apps (mobile applications) that provide a safe environment digitally for reporting sexual misconducts, harassment, abuse and violence.
Apps with user ratings less than 3.0 (assessed alongside with user feedback shared on the app store) are not included in this compilation. Apps that have not been updated for a long time are also not included. In instances where user ratings and feedback are unavailable on the app store, we encourage extra vigilance by (prospective) users.

“Smart Reporting and Referral (SMART RR) is a technology based mobile application that allows survivors, social workers and service providers to report and refer cases/incidents of GBV from their smart and basic phones. The tool was developed by Big Family 360 Foundation, a national non-governmental organisation in Nigeria.
Smart RR application is a technology based mobile application which enables survivors, social workers and service providers to report and refer GBV incidents to relevant service providers and authorities, conducts service mapping, automatically updates referral directory, collects and analyses referral data.
This idea was built on the existing referral mechanism of the GBV Sub Sector which is done manually. The application was therefore designed to mitigate existing challenges such as under reporting and associated difficulties with accessing services.”
