If you use your iPhone to keep a digital record of information about your health, known as your Medical ID, then you should also know you can use your iPhone’s Health app to sign up as an organ donor.

We know this isn’t for everyone, and you should seriously consider whether or not this is for you before you just go in and blindly sign up, but if you want to register as an organ donor from your iPhone then we’ll show you how in this tutorial.

Registering as an organ donor in the Health app

To get started, follow these steps:

1) Launch the Health app on your iPhone and open the Medical ID tab.

5) The Health app will now let you know that you’re successfully signed up. You can tap on the red Done button to dismiss the message and you can even share your decision with friends and family using the button below it.

Un-registering as an organ donor in the Health app

If you changed your mind and you want to unregister yourself as an organ donor from the Health app, this process is also simple. Just follow these steps to unregister yourself:

1) Launch the Health app on your iPhone and go back to your Medical ID tab.

5) Finally, tap on the red Done button to save your choice.

Keep in mind that if you’ve signed up to be an organ donor somewhere else in your lifetime, then using the Health app to unregister as an organ donor will not remove you from those lists.

This app is self-contained and made to work with the Donate Life program only, so it can only add and remove you from the Donate Life list and not any others you may have signed up for.
