Most mobile phones require a password or Touch ID to access the phone.  These settings are for our security and to protect our personal information. However, did you know you can make your health information available in case there was an emergency?  This information, such as an emergency contact, can be accessible from the lock screen (without someone knowing your password or entering your phone).

To find out more visit Apple’s website or read this article for adding an emergency contact to your smartphone.  You can also check out this YouTube video for iPhone and Android smartphones.

Does your teen have this set up on their phone?  Do you think it’s a good idea?
