How to Delete Your TextPlus Account
TextPlus offers a free way to send and receive infinite text messages without going through the pricey phone service system. Why pay for texts when they can be sent through wifi you already have instead? TextPlus makes it easy to keep in touch with both personal and professional texting using a virtual phone number assigned to each app user when they sign up.
When you're done using an online or app account, however, it's important to fully delete your data behind you. Hackers often seek unused accounts because they contain usernames and passwords in common with your more important accounts, like your work email or even your bank. By deleting your TextPlus account when it's no longer in use, you keep yourself safe from back-hacks in the future, maybe even years down the road.
However, TextPlus doesn't necessarily delete your login when they remove your account and recycle the number. With DoNotPay, you can make sure your data is fully deleted every time you delete an account.
