How to set up emergency location sharing on your phone

Apple offers a built-in Emergency SOS system on iPhones that gives you a quick way to call 911and alert a group of emergency contacts. Android doesn’t have a similar all-in-one function, but it does have a preassigned emergency contact from the lock screen. If you want to share and request locations with trusted contacts — without needing to make a 911 call — download Google’s Trusted Contacts app for Android or iOS. Read more about it at The Verge.
