TipSoft SMS is a service which allows 100% anonymous crime tips to be submitted to the police via text message. The technology routes messages through a server that encrypts cell phone numbers before they get to police. No one will know the identity of the text tipster. The technology also allows investigators to securely reply back to the cell phone without compromising the tipster’s identity.
