Add a panic link to your phone’s home screen

How do I share my location (panic)?

How do I save the WhatsApp link on my home screen?

On Android:

Open your link you want to pin to your home screen in your phone’s browser. Tap the menu button and tap Add to home screen. You’ll be able to enter a name for the shortcut and then Chrome will add it to your home screen. The shortcut can be dragged around and placed anywhere, including in-app folders — just like a normal app icon.

Open the link you want to add to your home screen in your browser. Tap the Share button on the browser’s toolbar — that’s the rectangle with an arrow pointing upward. Tap the Add to Home Screen icon in the Share menu. You’ll be prompted to name the shortcut before tapping the Add button. The shortcut can be dragged around and placed anywhere, including in-app folders — just like a normal app icon.
