She titled the clip the “mum hack that you need to know”.

The user explained, “Go onto your contacts, click the contact that you need.

“Press edit, then what you need to do then is click ringtone, set to emergency bypass.

“Do the same for text, set to emergency bypass.

“And then if your phone is on silent it will actually ring out loud or text out loud so you will be able to hear it.”
