General

Do you have an android app?

Dont Text is only available for iOS devices.

How do I enable text message filtering?

  1. Download our app from the App Store
  2. Go to settings
  3. Scroll down and tap on Messages
  4. Scroll down and tap on Spam & Filtering
  5. Select Dont Text to allow our app to filter your messages

Why isn’t the app working, it’s not blocking spam texts?

Make sure you followed the steps above to enable text filtering. Next, check that you have added keywords with the ‘block’ setting inside the Dont Text app. Texts will only be blocked if they are from a sender not saved in your contacts and they contain a keyword with the ‘block’ setting. If a message contains a keyword with the ‘allow’ setting, it will not be blocked.

What’s the difference between ‘block’ and ‘allow’ keywords?

Keywords with the ‘block’ setting are sent to Junk. Keywords with the ‘allow’ setting will pass through the filter even if it contains a different blocking keyword. If there is a conflict between a ‘block’ and ‘allow’ keyword that are contained in the same message, the message will be allowed through the filter.

Why are texts getting blocked that shouldn’t?

Check that you do not have keywords set that could be blocking the wrong messages on accident. If you frequently receive texts from the same unknown number that you do not want to be blocked, consider adding that number to your contacts. Finally, use keywords with the ‘allow’ setting to prevent certain texts from being blocked. This is useful for verification codes or other text notifications that you might get often from numbers not in your contacts.

What happens to blocked texts?

Blocked texts are sent the the Junk folder in the Messages app on your iPhone.

Does the messages app still work?

Yes all your text messages still appear in the messages app. Dont Text is not a messenger app.
