iPhone Shortcut Records Your Interaction With the Police When Pulled Over, Sends Text To Your Contact and Copy Of Video

This iPhone shortcut has been around for about 2 years, but has gained popularity recently with its new updates.

If you say the words ” Hey Siri I’m Getting Pulled Over” then your phone will turn off your music > Turn down your screen brightness > Put your phone on ” Do Not Disturb” to avoid calls interrupting > Open your front camera and begin recording.

This feature does need to be downloaded first and within the set up you can choose a emergency contact who will be notified that you were pulled over, send them your location AND then a copy of your video once it stops recording.

How to download it

There are a few steps you’ll need to do to install the shortcut.
Step 1: To set it up, first download the “Shortcuts” app on your iPhone.
Step 2: Then you have to run another shortcut in the Shortcuts app. If you tap “Gallery” on the bottom right corner, you will see other shortcuts you can run.
Step 3: Next, go to settings, and scroll down to “Shortcuts.” Tap it and then toggle the “Allow Untrusted Shortcuts” to on.
Step 4: Open this link in Safari to download the “I’m getting pulled over” shortcut. Tap “Get Shortcut.”
Step 5: Once it opens, scroll down and tap “Add Untrusted Shortcut.”
Step 6: Choose a contact(s) for who you would like to send your location and a copy of the video recording to. Then tap done.
