Emergency Pass for Android and iPhone: App or Browser?
Emergency ID offers you two electronic solutions with which you can implement your emergency card online. You can operate the emergency card via any terminal – just an internet connection and a browser are required. It is available to the first responders on existing mobile network within a few seconds. Important: The emergency card online is available from any smartphone, whether Apple iPhone, Samsung phone or other manufacturers.
Alternatively, use the Android App for the emergency Pass. Under the title “Notfall-ID” she is in Google Playstore for Android ready for download.However, the app is not yet linked to the online contingency plan. It also gives you the ability to capture the most important medical data and make it available for emergencies. However, the app requires you to carry your smartphone with you. Without your cell phone, the first responders can not access the data. The advantage of the emergency pass app is that the data can be retrieved even without an existing Internet connection. However, it is currently only available for Android devices. If you would like to use the emergency Pass with the iPhone, you should maintain your profile at notfallpass-id.de.
Ideally, you combine both solutions to ensure the best possible care in an emergency – without mobile network via the compact data in the emergency-pass app, with Internet connection in your detailed online emergency passport.
