How to deactivate TextNow permanently?

Posted on

Your phone number will no longer be able to receive calls or texts if you discontinue Ad-Free+ (including Data Ons).

YES. From a computer or mobile device, you can always deactivate your TextNow number. The steps are as follows: Please go HERE to deactivate your phone number.

Simply open a conversation window for a specific person and click the I icon next to the word “TEXT” in a blue bubble that has a red line through it. It is located underneath the first subject field on the top of the screen. Clicking it will take you to the TextConversations menu, where you can either tap Never Notify new messages to stop sending notifications while still receiving audio and media files for the selected contact OR turn off all chat notifications (mute) conversations for that contact. The contact won’t be aware that they have been muted, but this will also enable you to check back in on the conversation at any point if you switch them back on.

Please click HERE if you want to completely stop receiving text chat notifications without muting any individual contacts. The application as a whole cannot be muted; rather, individual discussions can be muted, not the full application. You must check out of the entire application and then delete any information related to your phone number under Privacy > Settings > Delete Profile Data in order to permanently disable it. Any saved media files will still display your account login if someone were to access them, allowing them to recognize you as the original owner of that particular file if it was reported or legally obtained.
