Geek Fairy ICE

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.

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
