In recent years, the growth of female employees in the commercial market and industries has increased. As a result, some people think travelling to distant and isolated locations during odd hours generates new threats to women’s safety. The exponential increase in assaults and attacks on women, on the other hand, is posing a threat to women’s growth, development, and security. At the time of the attack, it appears the women were immobilized and needed immediate support. Only self-defense isn’t sufficient against abuse; a new technological solution is desired and can be used as quickly as hitting a switch or button. The proposed Women Safety Gadget (WSG) aims to design a wearable safety device model based on Internet-of-Things (IoT) and Cloud Technology. It is designed in three layers, namely layer-1, having an android app; layer-2, with messaging and location tracking system; and layer-3, which updates information in the cloud database. WSG can detect an unsafe condition by the pressure sensor of the finger on the artificial nail, consequently diffuses a pepper spray, and automatically notifies the saved closest contacts and police station through messaging and location settings. WSG has a response time of 1000 ms once the nail is pressed; the average time for pulse rate measure is 0.475 s, and diffusing the pepper spray is 0.2–0.5 s. The average activation time is 2.079 s.
