Can TextNow Messages Be Traced?

Different people may have different opinions based on their own level of knowledge about the issue. But as with most other services, yes, TextNow messages can be traced depending on whether or not the requestors have a subpoena or other legal means to compel TextNow to release information about a particular user.

Can I Trace A TextNow Number?

There are a few ways to trace a TextNow number. One way is to use the caller ID function on your phone to identify the number. If the number is not saved in your phone, you can search online for websites that track cell phone numbers.

Finally, if you are communicating with someone through a TextNow and you want to keep your identity hidden, you can use a virtual number provider to create a temporary phone number for texting purposes only.

Can You Be Tracked Through Text?

Yes, you can be tracked through text. A Short Message Type 0, also known as a silent SMS, is used for this purpose, and these have been around for years. The process works by sending an SMS message to the target phone that does not generate any sound or vibration.

This silent SMS will show up in the target phone’s message log, and the sender’s phone number will be associated with it. If the target phone is then used to make a call or send a text message, the caller’s phone number will be displayed instead of the sender’s number.

This allows the person tracking the target phone to see all of the calls and messages that are being sent and received.
