Phone is Locked into an Emergency Call Lock Screen

On my lock screen, I have across the bottom, bottom left is Google Assistant, in the middle the finger print icon and in the bottom right the camera launcher.  I do have my ICE information in the centre of the screen, however I would like to swap either the camera or the Google assistant option for my emergency details, by which I mean, if I get run over or something, whoever finds my phone can press the word Emergency and this will bring up medical and other contact information.

 

I noticed that on my wife's iPhone, she has a button named Emergency in the bottom left of her lock screen and when pressed, it brings up all the relevant details.  Can this be done on the Xperia XZ1 Compact ?15520622768064175764292832417222.jpg

Re: Phone is Locked into an Emergency Call Lock Screen

Thanks for your reply, but I have found what I wanted (more or less).

 

On the normal lockscreen, when your flick up the screen, there is the usual fingerprint or log in screen, there is the word EMERGENCY at the bottom, I did not touch this in case it made a 999 or 911 call, but I have now found out when pressing it, it takes me into another screen which has the words EMERGENCY INFORMATION, when I press this twice it brings up all my emergency medical information and my emergency contacts, as long as you have entered this information, which I have done.

 

I'm now happy that should these details be required, they should be found in an emergency.

 

Thanks

Hi @bobby1964!

You can not change the behaviour with the standard lock screen, but you may be able to do so when using a different lock screen. I haven't tried any other, so I can't give you any suggestions, but you can always have a look in the Google Play store.

I hope that helps! Slightly smiling Face

Re: Phone is Locked into an Emergency Call Lock Screen

Hi again @bobby1964!

Yeah, that is correct and I totally misunderstood your question, I thought you wanted to change from the default behaviour to a different one, but now I can see that you are happy with the default one! Slightly smiling Face

Have a great weekend and sorry for the misunderstanding on my part. Slightly smiling Face
