PHOX Enhances Privacy with Text Blocking

PHOX already offers a compelling advantage for private texting and now with the discounted annual plan and text blocking, users receive even greater value.

REDMOND, WA — December 2, 2015 — Ivy Corp’s PHOX ( mobile texting service enhances privacy with new text blocking feature. In addition, Ivy Corp ( today announced a new annual discounted PHOX subscription option of $47.52 for 2,400 text messages, a 20% discount from the monthly plan.

Unlike an application that requires downloading, PHOX is a service that allows users to send and receive texts as usual while hiding their private number behind a public PHOX “Go-Between” number.

Text-Blocking = Enhanced Privacy
The text-blocking feature now allows PHOX users to block texts. If a PHOX user wants to block someone who is texting them, they simply send PHOX a “block” text for that Go-Between number. That number in turn may be reinstated as a Go-Between number by texting “unblock.” Block lists may also be viewed on the web site.

PHOX is ideal for situations when you want to avoid disclosing your phone number, but need to text publicly. Example uses for PHOX include: online classified purchases or sales, online dating, car service reservations, online forms and retail discount clubs.

PHOX routes text messages to the customer’s personal, private cell number without compromising privacy. As a service, PHOX is inherently more private than applications that extract or “slurp” data from users’ cell phones. Users are often unaware of how much privacy they may have traded for the use of a free app.

“This new feature underscores our commitment to privacy, allowing individuals to discontinue texting relationships or guarantee that a one-time interaction is the final interaction,” said Ivy Corp President and CEO Tomas Isaksson. “PHOX already offers a compelling advantage for private texting and now with the discounted annual plan and text blocking, users receive even greater value.”

PHOX Discounted Plan
PHOX customers may now purchase an annual PHOX subscription at a discounted rate of $47.52 for 2,400 text messages, a savings of 20% over the standard monthly plan.

PHOX is also available for $4.95 per month for 200 text messages (sent or received) or $9.95 per month with unlimited texting. PHOX U.S. public numbers are available in the U.S. and Canada and subject to applicable carrier charges. To subscribe or try a free seven-day trial that includes 60 messages, visit
