We think in cases of abuse and harassment, it would be beneficial for you to get law enforcement involved.

To release any kind of user information on our end, we require an official police subpoena.

Please know that if you are being harassed by someone you can send a message #STOP to block the user from contacting you. This works from standard issue cellular numbers, and TextNow numbers. 

For more information on this please see:

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
