Messages notifications on an iPhone homescreen.

If you have a smartphone, you’re probably getting text message alerts. Security codes from your bank, coupons from restaurants, messages from political campaigns—the list goes on and on. Here’s how to stop getting unwanted automated texts from an organization.

SMS messages don’t come with the kind of “Unsubscribe” links you’ll find in email newsletters. They often don’t include any instructions to unsubscribe. But, even if a text message doesn’t include any instructions for making it stop, there’s a practically universal way to unsubscribe.

Solutie

To unsubscribe from automated text messages sent to your mobile phone number, just respond to the text with one of the following words:

  • STOP
  • UNSUBSCRIBE
  • END
  • QUIT
  • CANCEL

“Stop” and “Unsubscribe” are the most common commands.

These are fairly universal commands, and most automated systems will immediately let you know that you’ve been removed from the list and won’t get any more automated alert messages.

Unsubscribing from a text message list on an iPhone.

Note that many automated SMS services share “shortcode” numbers they send you messages from. Sending a message like “STOP” or “UNSUBSCRIBE” will remove you from the list that last texted you from the number. To remove yourself from all lists sharing that shortcode number, send this message instead
