I don't think you can. It's an android software thing.
Why would you want to remove it?

@Members_mMVixg8: I can confirm that it isn't possible to remove the Emergency Call button from your Lock screen while a security feature is in place e.g. PIN, password etc. If your screen lock type is set to 'Swipe', then the option won't show up, as there is nothing restricting you, or others, from accessing your phone in case of an emergency.

Hello and thanks for the comment.

I want to remove it because I wear the phone in my back pocket and it manages to open switch on from the lock screen then reach the pin code screen and there it goes calling the emergency number. It happens many times. Thanks

It really is annoying. Thank you very much. Do you happen to know if there is any chance of changing the emergency number? Like instead of 112 or 911, using any other number of my choice?

Thank you very much, Pedro

I changed my emergency number to 0 thinking it would stop it but it seems to have found a whole list of new emergency numbers it can use and I can't find it to change it.
It phoned the police twice today.

Hi, thanks for the comment.

Could you be so kind as to tell me how did you change the number? Because I cannot find how to do it in my A52S. I call 911 everyday al least once!!!

Many thanks, Pedro

Mine it's keep calling 112 (EU emergency) at least once a day, it's just stupid! Why not to make a "slide to call" button?

Somehow, after every update it's even worse..
