Crime and violence against women, sexual abuse and rape are increasing globally. It creates insecurity, fear and dread for women all over the world.
An essential part of what makes bSafe unique and creates such positive reactions in the market is the fact that the features are based on the rape of Rich Larsen's own daughter, Charlen, and the father-daughter team’s desire to prevent others from experiencing similar traumatic situations.
Charlen was raped. She struggled with guilt, shame anxiety and suicidal thoughts for many years, until one day when her father Rich sat down with her. Together, they reflected on how the incident could have been avoided.
Based on Charlen’s experience, they started to develop features that could have prevented the rape, warned her friends and family, and collected evidence for later use in court. They wanted to develop features and solutions that can prevent pain, self-harm, anxiety, depression, and suicide among young girls and boys.
- If I had bSafe, my rape could’ve been prevented and I wouldn’t have had to struggle as much as I’ve done, says Charlen.
Her experience, ideas, and reflections have formed the basis for the cutting-edge and world-leading technology that has been developed by bSafe in recent years and is being launched worldwide with international partners this year.

According to statistics, you and I have 2-3 women in our close relationships (either friends or family) who have experienced or will experience rape. In many cases, it is not the incident itself that makes many women struggle from violence and rape. Most of the time, it is the shame and guilt that causes many to have mental problems, including intoxication, self-harm, depression and in the worst case suicide. We can not afford that!
