Samsung Emergency Mode

Emergency Call

::Attention Samsung Galaxy Users:: (S5 through current lineup)

Can your cellphone save your life?  You bet it can!  In more ways than you actually realize…

There’s a special feature that most of y’all may not even know exist, and that is EMERGENCY MODE.

You can enable Emergency mode by long-pressing the power button and then choosing “Emergency Mode” or also by going to SETTINGS > SAFETY ASSISTANCE.  When you enable this mode, you will need to include an emergency contact, and this person will be alerted in the event you find yourself in an actual emergency – knock on wood that you don’t, but hey things happen right?

When you activate this feature by tapping your power button three times in a row, you will send an emergency message to your specified contact.  You will also have the option to send pictures and voice recordings to them as well.
