Just cut-off the settings its useless, I know right. You’re probably thinking about that now. If anything happens to you take for instant, no it really happens, don’t mind me, responders are going to go through your phone to see if they can get any information related to your health or your emergency contact.
As far as I’m concern from where I’m writing this even if you jump into the lagoon, people would hardly check your phone or even check for medical information. For crying out loud no body know if this features existing here. it just you and your phone.
But for all of your phone features this is one of the most important—although less useful here, because your phone will probably crash too, just joking. It’s easy to set up these setting in your phone in less than 4 minute you’re done and save the hassle of you thinking how you could probably pull this off.
What if they are no responder or medical personnel there to check the victim phone for medical information, and no special trained personnel is available at that point in time, most people may not know this kind of feature is available, and if, they are likely to check her phone—the person’s might not know how to get the emergency contact or health conditional statement. Every ordeal personnel trained will check for your medical information and emergency contacts.
That why the emergency button can make a big different in a smartphone, although some people doesn’t know what it uses for. They think it just there because of the screen lock but it actually promises more good to the user. So if you don’t know how to set your medical information here is how you can set it up with your Android phone or iPhone.
Android comes with the emergency information features that lets medical expert get access to your health condition, it let they know medical condition you may have and allergies.
