How does anonymous reporting work?
STIs can cause annoying health problems and be transmitted to others without being noticed. If you’d like to warn your sexual partner but would prefer staying anonymous, you have the option to do so. By sending an anonymous warning via text messaging, you can spare your sexual partner(s) a lot of unpleasantness. Warn them even if you don’t have any symptoms.
Every situation is different, which is why it makes sense to carefully consider what you want to tell them. Explain the troublesome situation in the text message. It’s good to indicate which STI you contracted as well as where you got tested so that he or she can also do it there.
You can simply send an anonymous STI warning via this website. After sending it, you will receive a notification of delivery indicating that the message has been delivered.
A few examples
You can use one of the examples below as the basis for your message.
Warning! Get tested for a sexually transmitted infection (STI). An ex-sexual partner also has one.
This is an anonymous message. One of your sexual partners has been confirmed to have an STI. We advise you to get tested for ... (e.g., chlamydia/herpes/HIV).
Tip! Copy a message of your choice and send the text message easily & anonymously through our website.
Your identity remains secret
Nobody can trace your text message, unless you decide to reveal your identity in the message itself. We treat your data with confidentiality. We will not share your information with anybody. After a short time our system automatically deletes all messages and their corresponding data. Your privacy is therefore guaranteed.
Each text message you send carries a one-time fee of £1.49. With just a few clicks you can pay safely via Apple Pay, Google Pay, PayPal or Credit card. The service is therefore not free, but in return the delivery of your message is guaranteed. After every sent message you will receive a confirmation of delivery with the exact time of delivery.
