How To Send Text Messages Without Showing Number - Realitytechs



This is Realitytechs teaches you how to send a text message without including your phone number. To do so, you can download and use a couple of different apps on your iPhone or Android. If you have an email address that doesn't use your real name or link to any of your social media information, you can send a text from your email address instead.

Steps

Method One of Three:
Using the TextNow App

Download the TextNow app. Open theApp Store (iPhone) or the Google Play Store (Android), then do the following:iPhone - Tap Search, tap the search bar, type in textnow, tap Search, tapGET to the right of "TextNow", and enter your Apple ID (or Touch ID) when prompted.Android - Tap the search bar, type in textnow, tap TextNow - free text + calls, tap INSTALL, and tap ACCEPTwhen prompted.

Open TextNow. Tap OPEN in your phone's app store, or tap the TextNow app icon on your phone's Home Screen or in the App Drawer.

Tap Create Account. It's at the bottom of the screen. Doing so will bring up the account creation page.

Enter your account details. Fill out the following fields:Username - Type in a username that you want to use. You will have to choose a different one if your preferred one is already taken.Password - Enter a password that you want to use to log in.Email - Enter an email address to which you currently have access.

Tap Create. It's in the top-right corner of the screen. Your account with TextNow will be created.

Allow permissions if prompted. If your iPhone or Android asks for permission to access your phone's resources (e.g., notifications), tap Allow or OK when prompted.

Enter your preferred area code. Tap the "Area Code" text field, then type in an area code that's different than the one that your regular phone number uses.

Tap Next. It's in the top-right corner of the screen.

Tap the "Compose"

button. You'll find this option in the top-right corner of the screen.On Android, you'll instead tap the pencil-shaped icon

in the lower-right side of the screen.

Enter a phone number. In the text box at the top of the screen, type in the phone number to which you want to send an anonymous text.

Enter a message. Tap the text box near the bottom of the screen, then type in the text message that you want to send.

Tap Send. It's to the right of the text box. Your text will be sent; when your recipient receives the text, it will be from a different number than your actual phone number.On Android, tap the blue paper plane-shaped icon instead of Send.After sending the text, you may be prompted to add contacts or enable notifications if you haven't already done so.

Method Two of Three:
Using the Smiley Texting App

Understand this app's limitations.Smiley Private Texting is free to download and use a few times, but you will have to purchase credits to continue sending messages. Smiley Private Texting is ideal if you only have to send a few texts without showing your real number.A positive side to the Smiley Private Texting app is that you don't have to create an account to use it.

Download the Smiley Texting app. Open the App Store

(iPhone) or the Google Play Store

(Android), then do the following:iPhone - Tap Search, tap the search bar, type in smiley texting, tapSearch, tap GET to the right of "Smiley Private Texting", and enter your Apple ID (or Touch ID) when prompted.Android - Tap the search bar, type in smiley anonymous texting, tap Smiley Anonymous Texting, tap INSTALL, and tap ACCEPT when prompted.

Open the Smiley Texting app. TapOPEN in your phone's app store, or tap the Smiley Texting app icon on your phone's Home Screen or in the App Drawer.

Allow permissions if prompted. If your iPhone or Android asks for permission to access your phone's resources (e.g., the texting app), tap Allow or OK when prompted.

Tap the "Compose"

button. It's in the top-right corner of the screen.On Android, tap the pencil-shaped icon

instead.

Enter a phone number. Using the on-screen keypad, type in the phone number to which you want to send an anonymous text message.Your fake phone number will be selected for you.

Tap Enter. It's in the top-right corner of the screen.

Enter your text message. Type your message into the text box at the bottom of the screen.Consider making the message as long as possible since you only have a few free text credits.

Tap the "Send" icon. It resembles a blue paper plane in the bottom-right corner of the screen. Your text will be sent; when your recipient receives the text, it will be from a different number than your actual phone number.

Method Three of Three:
Using an Email Account

Try to find out which carrier your recipient uses. In order to send a text message to a phone via an email address, you'll need to know which carrier—e.g., Verizon, Sprint, T-Mobile, or AT&T—the phone uses.You sometimes can type the phone number into a computational search engine (e.g., WolframAlpha) to bring up information about the carrier.If you don't know which of these four carriers the phone uses, you'll need to send a message to all four of them.

Open an ambiguous email inbox. If you have an email address that doesn't use your real name (or anything close to it), isn't in any of your friends' contacts lists, and isn't linked to any social media accounts (e.g., Facebook), you can send an anonymous text from it.If you don't have such an email, you'll first need to create a new email address for the purposes of texting without showing a number.

Select the "Compose" button. You'll usually find it either on the side of the page or at the top of the page.

Select the "To" text field. This is where you'll enter the phone number.

Type in the phone number. Enter the phone number of the person to whom you want to send an anonymous text. Make sure that you enter numbers only (no parentheses or dashes).

Add the service provider's email-to-text handle. This will vary depending on your selected carrier: [1] T-Mobile - @tmomail.netAT&T - @txt.att.netSprint - @messaging.sprintpcs.comVerizon - @vtext.com

Enter your message. Type the text message's text into the body section of the new email form. You can leave the "Subject" text field blank.

Select the "Send" button. This will send your email's body text as a text message. When your recipient receives the message, they will see the email address.Some phones will block automatically any text received from an email address.

Quick Summary

1. Install TextNow from the App Store orPlay Store.
2. Create an account.
3. Allow requested permissions.
4. Select a new area code and tap Next.

Tips

Consider using anonymous texting apps when you are required to send text messages to individuals for whom you want to keep your phone number private. For example, if you are a school teacher who needs to update students on an assignment, use an anonymous texting app to keep your personal phone number private from your students.

Warnings

Do not send text messages from your personal email account if you want your identity kept private. The recipient will have access to your full name and identity when you send texts from your personal email account.
