“In Case of Emergency” Apps
There are two major categories of “In Ease of emergency” apps. One of them provides basic emergency contact information and comes with smart phones including IOS and Android. The other type of app goes further and allows you to keep information about your health insurance, medical records, automobile insurance, and even allows you to look up relevant facts to help you deal with a medical emergency.
What Comes With Your SmartPhone
Open the Apple Health app. It’s been present on all iPhones since September 2014. It will guide you through the setup.
Setting up ICE on your Android device isn’t as clean. It depends on which version of Android you’re running, but you might have an emergency contact feature under your phone’s settings. It might be hidden under My Information. In many cases, you may end up with free-form text that scrolls across your lock-screen.
