Textfree Web - FAQs & How-to's

What happened to Pinger Desktop?

In September 2015, Textfree Web took it's place. The main difference? Textfree Web lets you chat from a web browser instead of a downloaded desktop application. That means you can access your Textfree account from any computer, mobile device, or tablet with Internet access. Plus, the updated design makes it faster and easier to send texts! 

You can even use your same username/phone number and password to login to Textfree for Web!

Textfree Web 

How it works:

Send and receive text and picture messages on your PC, Mac, iOS or Android mobile device, or tablet for free! Login to Textfree Web with your existing account and text away! 


  • You'll see messages sent and received with Textfree in the last 72 hours
  • Voice calls are not supported
  • For picture messages, have friends send to your number OR for contacts whose pictures aren't going through, have them send to phonenumber@textfree.us address
