Requests from the General Public or Reporting Unwanted Communication

Twilio is an SMS and voice provider, but we don't send SMS messages or phone calls directly to end-users. Twilio cannot provide sender information without proper legal process. Here are some steps to try to stop unsolicited texts:

  • As a first measure, you can text STOP to the phone number sending texts to stop receiving messages.
  • If the STOP command does not help, and you need to to identify the sender of unwanted communication, we encourage you to work with your local law enforcement agency.
  • Twilio does not tolerate abuse of our Acceptable Use Policy including sending unsolicited, unwanted or harassing SMS messages or phone calls.
  • Report abuse here: https://www.twilio.com/help/abuse
  • If you are being harassed or threatened we strongly encourage you to work with your local law enforcement agency.
  • You can request any other information or request by contacting Twilio Customer Service.
