Have you ever wondered.... what if someone needed to get into my phone in case of emergency, but how can they because it is password protected? 

Here is your answer!

iPhone
First, find the Health app that comes pre-installed on your phone. Open it and at the bottom, look for the option labeled "Medical ID."  Now, go in here and edit your information. There are options to add medical conditions, notes, allergies, medications, blood type, organ donor preferences and more. Then, be sure to add the appropriate emergency contact(s). Keep in mind they will also get a message with your current location if you ever dial 911 from your phone.

 
Samsung
On Samsung phones, open your Contacts app.
First, update your own profile. There is an option to enter your medical information, be sure to go in here and add any pertinent information.

Now, go back to the main contacts screen and look for Groups in the upper right hand corner. In here you should find one labeled "ICE - Emergency Contacts." Go in here and select one or more emergency contacts, then save your changes.

Android
On other Android phones, search in settings for "lock screen message" and enter your information here. You might want to use the prefix "ICE" before an emergency contact phone number.
 
Any Phone
If none of the above settings work for your phone, you can always use this next hack, which will work on any device.
