Add Contact Information to iPhone Lock Screen

An iPhone with contact information displayed on the lock screen.This is for the worse case scenario if you lose your phone, hopefully someone honest will return it. In order for someone to return your phone, you will need to set your iPhone "Lock Screen" with a photo of your contact information. Do not put your cell phone number as it would be the missing device, but a different form of contact, perhaps your home phone, email or Facebook.


  1. Use a free editor program to add text to an image. I used the app called "Fotor". You can use a blank photo, your own photo or a free wall paper photo.

  2. Add your contact information and save it.

    A photo that has had contact information placed on it.


  3. Find the photo on your camera roll and set lock screen, every time your phone is on lock screen mode I'll have your contact information displayed.

On my iPhone I have it locked with iCloud. On iCloud I have instructions that tell the person how to contact me. Furthermore, if your phone is locked with iClooud and Find my iPhone a person can't reset the phone and use it again.


I love this feature on the iPhone and use it on all my devices.
