FMA developed a mobile application called “AKSYON VAW” in partnership with 8Layer Technologies. This was launched in February 2016. This mobile application was developed to call all users of ICTs-especially women and girls to take control of technology and strategically use any ICT platform at hand for activism against gender-based violence. It also demonstrate the need for users to know their rights and keep them safe whenever online. The app features three types of violence women face online - cyberbullying, identity theft and online harassment - and provides some solutions and preventive tips on what to do when one experiences such violence online. The mobile application is available in Google Playstore (http://bit.ly/2jhEGDL) and Appstore (http://apple.co/2k6m91P).
