What Can I Do If I Keep Getting Dirty Texts From Random Numbers

Share This:

It’s happened to all of us. You innocently open your phone to check a text and BAM! There’s a dirty message from some random number. You don’t know who it is, but you’re pretty sure they meant to send it to someone else. What do you do?

Well, if you’re anything like me, you probably panic. You might feel embarrassed, violated, or even scared that the person who sent the message knows where you live or works. And if it happens often enough, you may start to feel paranoid every time you get a text message from someone new.

It’s normal to feel this way after getting a dirty text from a random number. But what can we do about it? Unfortunately, there isn’t much we can do except delete the message and hope it doesn’t happen again. We can’t force the person who sent the message to reveal themselves, and we can’t block them from sending us messages either. All we can really do is try not to think about it too much and move on with our lives.

If you’re receiving dirty texts from random numbers on a regular basis, there are a few things you can do to try and stop it from happening:

  • Talk to your carrier about changing your number. This is usually a last resort, but if you’re getting too many dirty texts, it may be the only way to stop them.
  • Be careful about who you give your number to. If you only give your number out to people you know and trust, it’s less likely that someone will misuse it.
  • Use a burner phone or disposable number. This is a good option if you’re worried about someone finding out your real number. You can use a temporary number for online dating or when giving your number out to strangers.
