Hidden phones: managing emergency government alerts
The government is rolling out a new Emergency Alerts system. A test alert will be sent on Sunday 23 April 2023. The alerts will be used to tell you about emergency situations through your mobile phone or tablet. However, the alert will be accompanied by a loud 10-second sound even if your device is on silent. Your mobile phone or tablet does not have to be connected to mobile data or Wi-Fi to get alerts.
If you have a secret mobile phone hidden from an abusive partner, follow the instructions in the video made by Refuge. The video explains how the siren can be disabled by switching off these emergency alerts in your settings app, both on Android and Apple devices.
