Women have progressed a lot in terms of social empowerment and economics. They are going for higher education, jobs, and many other similar endeavors, but harassment cases have also been on the rise. So, women’s safety is a big concern nowadays, especially for developing countries. Many previous studies and attempts were made to create a feasible safety solution for women. Out of various features to ensure women’s safety in critical situations, location tracking is a very common and key feature in most previously proposed solutions.  This study finds out mechanisms of sending the location to different types of the recipient in various women safety solutions. In addition, the advantages and drawbacks of location sending methods in women safety solutions were analyzed.
