Communicating in an increasingly digital society can be overwhelming. While most people value their privacy, it can be difficult to remain anonymous. If you want to send a text message and still want to remain anonymous, you can do this in several ways. Read on to learn how to send a text anonymously.


Method 1 of 4: Via an email account

Send an Anonymous Text Step 1

Step 1. Create a new email address for yourself

It is better not to use your personal account as the recipient will be able to view your personal information (name, email address, etc.). Instead, choose to create a completely new and free email address (on Google, Yahoo, etc.) and make sure that no personal information about yourself is entered.

Step 2. Find the phone number of the person in question

Make sure you find out the phone number and make sure it belongs to the person you want to message.

Although you are sending an email, in addition to the recipient's email address, you will also need his or her phone number

Step 3. Find out which telecom provider the person in question is with

The person who wants to send you a message will have a telecom provider, such as KPN, BEN or T-Mobile. All these telecom providers make it possible to send a message to someone's phone via e-mail. To find out which telecom provider someone is with, you can either ask the person or use one of the following sites to look it up:

Step 4. Combine your contact's phone number with his or her operator's email

In other words, you will compose an email that the person will receive on his or her phone instead of in his or her email account. Simply enter the ten-digit phone number (no hyphens or spaces) and then choose one of the following email templates for the specific operator:

Once you have gathered all the necessary information about the person you wish to contact, you must log into your new email account and compose a new email. Enter the phone number and corresponding email template from the list above. Then click Send.

  • Your contact will receive an anonymous text message.

Step 2. Read the rules of the website you have chosen

The standard rules usually prohibit using the services to commit fraud, stalking or other crimes. Additional rules can be about costs, how often you can use the service, privacy and many other things.

  • Some free text messaging services have been taken off the internet because they were abused. Verify that the service you want to use is still active and carefully read the Terms and Conditions listed on the website.
  • Know that these services can find out your IP address. In other words, don't use these services to do anything illegal because you will be caught.

Step 3. Enter false information about the sender if necessary

Some services require you to enter a phone number, but that's not always the case. If you need to come up with a fake phone number, you can make it more convincing by adding a random number to your area code. You can also choose something that is obviously fake like 555-555-5555.

Services that specialize in anonymous text messages usually don't require you to enter a phone number. Instead, the service will usually create a fake phone number itself to send the message

Step 4. Type in the recipient's phone number

This information is required in all cases. Enter the recipient's full ten-digit phone number, including the area code. Some anonymous text messaging services will also ask you to select the specific operator.

Step 5. Write and send your message

Type the message, review the website requirements, and then click the Submit or Submit button.

  • Your contact will receive an anonymous text message.
  • Some of these services limit the number of characters. Usually this corresponds to the number of characters you can send in a text message via your mobile phone, so somewhere between 130 and 500 characters.
