Block. Spam. Texts.

Dont Text creates a junk folder in your messages app and sends spam texts to the junk folder for you. With Dont Text installed and enabled on your device, you never get notifications from annoying spam texts and spam is automatically sent to your junk folder. Dont Text makes it easy for you to block spam texts on your device and you get started it in minutes.

Customize Filtering
Dont Text allows you to customize how you block spam texts. Inside the app, you can create keywords to filter text messages from unknown senders. Create a blocking keyword to filter any text containing that keyword and send the text to junk. Use allow keywords to prevent important texts from accidentally ending up in junk and make sure you never miss an important text.

Dont Text does not save your contacts or texts that you send. Dont Text only checks text messages from unknown senders to filter spam. Dont Text cannot access text messages between you and your contacts, or any texts that you send. Dont Text can only check incoming messages from a number not saved in your contacts and this information is never stored and never leaves your phone.

Good. Free.

I was using TextKiller before, but that one charges and was letting certain things through, such as when you are involuntarily added to a google group (why is that even possible?) full of sleazy content. I started getting those about 250 times a day. I wished there was a way to enter keywords to block. Then I found out about Don’t Text. It lets you filter using keywords. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to be filtering the known spam Text Killer did filter, so I’m getting those 20-person group texts again. If iPhone allowed me to use both apps to filter instead of choosing just one, no spam would get through.

Thank you for the review and for using Dont Text! So glad to hear that Dont Text is blocking most of those spam texts but wish we were getting them all. If you send me a message from the website ( your feedback about the texts that are not getting blocked could help me improve Dont Text. Thanks!

So far, so good

I have been getting several spam texts per week. I report them to my carrier as spam as well as to the FTC, block each number in my phone, & delete the text. They just keep coming from new numbers.

I tried this app because I’m so sick of it. I’m just using the free version. I scrolled through all of my reported texts & used those as a template of what keywords to enter in the block list. So far, only one spam text had made it to my primary inbox since installation & it did not include any of the blocked keywords, so I added them. I’ve found a few blocked texts in the junk folder & still reported to spam & FTC & blocked & deleted. I have no idea if that helps, but I figure it can’t hurt. At least I’m not getting all the notifications, which helps. Another user reported she was still getting the spam group texts. I have not gotten one of those since installation, so I’ll deal with that when it happens.

But I’m pleased so far & I think it’s doing the most that can be done, as I’ve heard iPhone will not allow any texts to be completely blocked & so they must be sent through. Not getting constant notifications is the best I can hope for & I’ll gladly take it!

No more vulgar sleazy text messages

Was getting several disgusting vulgar messages daily. Thanks to Don't Text, haven't been getting any more so far. Thankyou!!! No more scam/spam messages either. I am using the FREE version, and just type in the Keyword of unwanted text(s). The only thing is, make sure to check your Junk and Deleted Messages imessage folder occasionally, as I have had to recover a few deleted messages that I never used a keyword to block, so be alert to that, but otherwise, I am very pleased with this app and recommend it.
