ICE option in lock screen

In my phone contacts I also have an ICE option (In Case of Emergency) with a phonenumber attached for when I am for example in hospital. 


Unfortunately with the smart practice of locking your phone with a passcode this also became useless as there are only three options, unlock, emergency or cancel. 

 

I would like a button in the lock screen with the phone number of my ICE contact so that if I would ever end up in hospital or otherwise incapacitated emergency responders can dial up my ICE contact to notify them.

Re: ICE option in lock screen

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

There is no automatic method to do that, but on some device models/OS levels, you can create a message to be displayed when the screen is locked. Please check your lock screen options (usually inside of Homescreen > Options > Display, but it might be different for your OS level) to see if you have that ability.

Good luck!
