What kind of medical information can I add?

 

If you have an illness or condition that may need to be known to paramedics (such as Diabetes, an allergy to Penicillin or if you have a Pacemaker installed), putting that information on your lock screen can be useful if you fall ill and are unable to explain your illness to medical staff.


If you have a screen lock on your device in order to protect your information, medical staff will still be able to see this information without needing to gain access to your device.

 

Follow the below steps to add medical information to your home screen:

 

1. From the home screen, swipe the screen to bring up your apps.
