If you have an accident and are alone the emergency services will often look at your phone to see if there is an ICE (In Case of Emergency) contact number. There are ways to add this to your phone so that it doesn’t need to be unlocked.
Adding ICE to an iPhone
Go to the Health App
Click on Medical ID at the bottom
Then Edit at the top
Add in contact details and any other medical information.
You can check it is working, go to your lock screen and before you unlock your phone slide the screen to the right.
Click on Emergency bottom left
And to see the details you have put in, click on Medical ID bottom left
Adding ICE to an Android Phone
There are 2 ways to do this depending on which Android operating system you have.
Either in Settings go to User
Click on Emergency Information and fill in your information
If you don’t have the Emergency details option see below.
Go to Settings – Lock Screen
And then edit the Lock Screen Message
This will then show on your home screen
