Send Anonymous SMS
Send anonymous SMS refers to a service for sending SMS text messages in a way
that the sender ID is hidden from the recipient. The reasons for sending Anonymous SMS
can be various like make a surprise, a joke, a declaration of love or even to denounce
something. Send anonymous SMS is popular because it allows sending a text message without leaving
a trace on the receiver phone.
Send anonymous SMS is available via SMS websites
or even with the use of an SMS gateway.
There are a lot of websites on the Internet that
provides free SMS services but only a few of
them allow sending SMS anonymously.
Anonymous SMS usually can be sent in two ways: by changing the sender ID of the
SMS or we can also talk about anonymous SMS when the SMS website does not require
- Sender ID modification
The receiver's GSM devices display the sender's phone number when an incoming SMS
is received. This phone number is called the sender ID or sender address.
This option is especially available when you use an SMS gateway software for sending
SMS messages. (However, some SMS service providers also support this feature).
Usually, SMS gateways allow to modify the sender ID. NOTE: Sender
ID can be modified only if SMS messages are sent via the Internet. GSM modem
technology does not support this functionality!
So if sender ID modification is available then the user can change the sender phone
number to a "fake" phone number or for alphanumeric characters. It is especially
used for marketing purposes when companies want the recipient to identify the
SMS with their company name or brand name.

- Send SMS from websites without registration
As it was mentioned, several websites offer free SMS sending. Some of them also
allows to send SMSs anonymously. It usually refers to that users do not need to
register on the given website but instantly can send a few SMSs.
However, this option is neither a totally anonymous one since usually the IP address
of the user is available. This way, users cannot do anything illegal.
Usually, if users send death threats, abuse, slander or anything illegal they
will be blocked from the given site based on their IP address.
Send anonymous SMS can be useful for:
