How can I keep emergency contact information on my phone for first responders?

Episode 1536 (31:04)

Tom from Chicago, IL
iOS 12 Medical ID

Tom has been trying to get his friends to put their emergency health information in their iPhone. Leo says it's called I.C.E., for In Case of Emergency. It allows first responders to access vital information from a mobile phone without having to unlock it. It's called Medical ID, which enables users to put in emergency contact information, blood type, and other medical data.

Tom's wondering how he can do this on Android, though. Leo says Samsung has an ICE feature. But he could also have an ICE message created on his lock screen image.

ScooterX says that there are ICE settings in Android phones using the two latest versions of Android. It's under "Emergency" in the phone settings. Users can enter similar details.
