Android devices come with the emergency call button. It appears on the lock screen if the screen lock is a pin, password or pattern.
At emergency circumstances, you can use this dialer to call emergency numbers (for instance: 911). It is a beneficial one.
But at the same time, there is a possibility that anyone can use your phone’s emergency call screen (without unlocking device) or accidentally dialing to emergency numbers.
By default, Android doesn’t have an option to remove it from the lock screen.
But, if you want to get rid of the emergency call button, then you can do it with the help of apps or modules on Android.
In this post, we will see 2 different methods to remove it from Android. Let’s get started.
