If Someone Online Tells You To Say The Number 108 To Siri, DON’T Do It

Unless you need help from emergency services, don’t listen to anyone who tells you to say the number 108 to Siri on your iPhone.

If you have an iPhone, you know there are tons of commands you can give Siri.

You can ask for directions, the weather, what movies are currently playing, and even what planes are overhead. It’s always fun discovering all the other cool things you can ask your voice-controlled personal assistant, but there are some commands that should only be used for specific purposes.

Some people, however, think it’s funny to trick others by telling them to say certain commands to Siri, like the number 108 — which you definitely shouldn’t use unless you need emergency services.

That’s because the number 108 is equivalent to a 911 call in India.


Not only does the call waste time for emergency services when they could be helping someone truly in need, but it can get you into trouble for calling without an emergency.
