What is it?
In an emergency situation, pressing the MTN 2MyAid panic button on your
cellphone will send a distress SMS to four emergency contacts alerting them
that you are in an emergency situation or in distress. These four contacts are
pre-selected and can be anyone you choose.
The SMS will explain that you need help and contain information about your
location. This will enable your emergency contacts to contact you, alert
emergency services or come to your aid. If you have activated Follow on Tracking,
your contacts will be able to query your updated location for the specified
period of time.
