We hope you never find yourself in a situation where you’ll actually have to call or text someone for help, but you never know what might happen, so it’s better to be prepared. This is why we’ve decided to show you how to set up the SOS Messages function on your Samsung Galaxy S6 or S6 Edge.

Samsung Galaxy S6

How Does the SOS Function Work?

When triggered, the SOS feature will send two pictures (from both front and back cameras), as well as an audio clip and your exact Google Maps location to your chosen contact (or contacts). To trigger the function, you simply have to press the power button three times, quickly, in succession. When the feature is triggered, your phone’s screen will light up for a moment, and your handset will vibrate.

Enable the SOS Function on the S6 and S6 Edge

Go to Settings>Personal>Privacy and Safety. In the next screen, tap on Send SOS Messages. Move the toggle to On, accept the terms of use, and pick a contact from your address book.

Once you have enabled the function, you can choose whether you want your phone to send out an audio, photo, or both when you are in trouble.
