What is Text Me - Free Texting & Calls?

Text Me is a messaging app that provides users with a virtual “burner phone” number for anonymous texting and calls.


The first few messages can be sent for free with Text Me, but then credits must be purchased or earned by watching advertisements, playing games, or inviting friends. Users can also purchase a monthly membership for $2.99, keeping their burner number active for the duration of their subscription. 


The app must be used consistently to keep the same phone number, otherwise the number will expire. Text Me users can attach and send pictures and media directly from DropBox, without having to download them to your device.

Is Text Me - Free Texting & Calls safe for my kids?

Text Me is not safe for kids to use because it encourages anonymous texts and calls from a burner number, which cannot be tracked. Anonymity opens the opportunity for bullying and harassment, since those receiving the calls and texts have no idea who they are from. 

Credits through Text Me must be bought or earned by watching advertisement videos, playing video game trials, or inviting friends to join. Some of the advertisements that pop up in the middle of text windows are questionable for young kids, including dating apps, violent video games, and dieting ads. 

It’s also common for numbers to receive random messages or calls from strangers which is can be dangerous.
