Are you looking to remove the emergency contact on your iPhone? In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process step by step. Let’s get started!

Removing Emergency Contact on iPhone

If you have set up an emergency contact on your iPhone and want to remove it, follow these simple steps:

Step 1: Open the Health App

To remove the emergency contact, you need to access the Health app on your iPhone. Locate the Health app icon, which looks like a white square with a red heart inside it. Tap on it to open.

Step 2: Tap on “Medical ID”

Inside the Health app, tap on “Medical ID” located at the bottom right of the screen. This will open your Medical ID page.

Step 3: Edit Your Medical ID

To remove the emergency contact, tap on “Edit” in the top-right corner of the screen. The edit menu will appear.

Step 4: Remove Emergency Contact

Scroll down until you find the “Emergency Contacts” section. Under this section, locate your emergency contact and tap on the “-” (minus) button next to their name.

Note: If you have multiple emergency contacts listed, repeat this step for each one individually.

Step 5: Save Changes

Once you have removed all desired emergency contacts, tap on “Done” in the top-right corner of the screen to save your changes.


  • If you are unable to find or access the Health app on your iPhone, make sure it is not hidden or restricted. You can check this by going to “Settings” > “Screen Time” > “Content & Privacy Restrictions” > “Allowed Apps”.

    Ensure that the Health app is enabled.

  • If you don’t see the Medical ID option inside the Health app, it is likely because you haven’t set up your Medical ID yet. To set it up, go to the Health app and tap on “Medical ID” > “Edit”. Fill in your personal details and emergency contacts, if desired.

Remember: It is important to keep your emergency contacts updated in case of any emergencies. If you want to add new emergency contacts in the future, simply follow the same steps mentioned above and tap on the “+” (plus) button under the “Emergency Contacts” section.

Removing an emergency contact from your iPhone is a straightforward process. By following these steps, you can easily remove any unwanted emergency contacts from your Medical ID. Stay safe!
