Wake Up Wednesday – Set up SOS on Google

“I’d be lost without my phone!” How often do we hear people say that in everyday life? But in the event of an emergency, it would almost certainly be true. Most smartphones these days are equipped with the facility to send an SOS call in seconds – so we all carry a potentially life-saving tool in our pocket or bag.

In this week’s #WakeUpWednesday guides, we run through the emergency functions on iPhones, Samsung and Google phones: what they do, how to enable them and where to find the settings to adjust them for your needs. Even if you’re familiar with them already, it’s worth refreshing your memory – and make sure your children know how to use these features, too. It’ll take a matter of minutes and it will be time well spent.
