Having emergency medical information on your cell phone screen can save your life. It sounds like an exaggeration, but if you’ve been in a serious accident and are surrounded by complete strangers, picking up your cell phone and knowing your allergies or blood type could be the difference between life and death. And, most likely, your mobile phone has the function of displaying emergency information on the mobile phone screen. Here we will teach you how to do it.

How to Post Emergency Information on iPhone

The first step is to open the Health app. It’s usually installed on your iPhone by default, but if you’ve uninstalled it for some reason, download it from the App Store.

If this is your first time, you will have to register various personal information such as your man, age or gender. This is all optional, so you can skip it if you wish.

Once in the application, click on the tab with your initials in the upper right corner. Select an option Medical record and start filling out the information that you consider necessary for the work of paramedics or emergency services in the event of an accident. For example, you can indicate your blood type or whether you have allergies.


Then at the bottom of the phone, activate the option Show on lock screen.

Done, your emergency information will be available on your iPhone.

How to View Emergency Information on iPhone

It’s also important to know how to view emergency information on iPhone. In fact, it would be a good idea if you taught your kids how to view emergency information on an iPhone.

When your phone is locked, simply try to force unlock it until your iPhone asks for an unlock code. Now click on Emergency in the lower left corner and then in Medical record also in the lower left corner.

If you have registered emergency contacts, when you make an emergency call, your iPhone will send a message with your location to the registered contacts.

How to Post Emergency Information on Android

Almost all modern Android mobile phones have the ability to display medical information in case of an emergency and send alerts to security services in the event of an accident. The function is configured differently depending on each manufacturer, but something like this:

Go to Parameter and search Emergency, Emergency contacts or Send an emergency message.

You may find an option to enter medical information such as blood type, chronic conditions, or allergies. You can also register emergency contacts.

Some Android phones allow you to display a personalized emergency message on your lock screen. This is an extremely useful option for those who don’t know how to view emergency information, as they simply need to pick up the phone and press Emergency to view this information.
