Set up emergency calls and messages on mobile devices

Today's smartphones have a built-in system for calls and emergency messages or SOS that can be activated with the press of a button.

Each smartphone manufacturer can incorporate additional features such as being able to send a short sound message, automatically take a photo from the front and rear cameras, and display important medical information for emergency services.

If you fill in the emergency medical data, in the event that you unfortunately suffer an accident and are unconscious, the emergency services will be able to use your smartphone to see data such as allergies, intolerances, blood group, organ donation, contact persons, etc. … without being able to access the rest of the information on the phone. That is, they will not be able to access the content of the phone but they will be able to notify the people you have defined as emergency contacts.

As well as in the event of an accident, the emergency call system is useful in a dangerous situation, for example if we notice someone following us or threatening us, and we don't want to take our phone out of our bag or pocket to alert the attacker. We can make an emergency call and send a message simply by pressing the device's power button a defined number of times (depending on the model and manufacturer).
