How do I put in my details?
You need to put in your password into the box on the bottom right of the screen and click ‘Log In’ to enter the edit selection screen (the password is set to ‘password’ when you first use your USB). You will then see the edit buttons choose the section you wish to edit from there.
Do I have to fill in all the information?
All information is optional, so you put in as much information as you wish.
Why do I not fill in my full date of birth?
The year of your birth is enough for an emergency situation. We felt that with concerns about identity issues we would not include any information that was sensitive, only information that could be needed for an emergency situation.
What happens if I forget my password?
Your password is non recoverable. This is a security measure so nobody can change your details. You can still use the information contained in your USB but you will not be able to edit it.
I have a condition that I do not want to be seen in the public screen but it would need to be known in an emergency.
We suggest in the ‘Other’ box putting something like “Please contact my GP for information about an existing condition”.
Will the emergency services know what the USB is?
As part of their normal procedure a trained person will check an unconscious or delirious person for medical devices. The USB has the recognised letters ICE on the device which stands for In Case of Emergency and the Staff and snake emblem in the paramedic star. These alert the person searching that the USB is a medical information device.
Can I use my USB to store music and other files?
You can, but we do not recommend that you do. The information held on your USB is important; you should not clutter the drive with other files. In an emergency you want it to be clear were the information is. You can use the Personal Folder to store important information, such as scans of your passport, driving licence, insurance documents etc
The picture I want to use is big, will it fit?
The software on the USB will automatically adjust the image so that it fits into the window on the public page.
Is the USB waterproof?
The digital Dog Tag has been UK IP tested IP5/7. The tag is unaffected by dust and water emersion, and was tested for a period of 1 hour at a 1 metre depth. The tag will only withstand contact with fresh water. Because of this, we suggest to avoid all contact with salty or chlorinated water. We also suggest that when possible, to remove the tag before bathing as soapy products may have an effect on the tag.
With regards to the tag being exposed to sweat, over long periods of time and a high volume of sweat, this could have an effect on the tag due to the salt content. However, we have designed products to help avoid this happening, for example, we now sell sports arm and wrist pouches.
Is the USB effected by X-ray machines?
The USB is not effected by x-ray machines, such as the ones used in airports
