About this app

Want an SMS app that is fast, secure, and packed with all the features and customization you could want? Look no further.

Pulse SMS is a seriously beautiful, next-generation, private text messaging app.

We care deeply about your experience with the app, and are committed to creating the best SMS texting app.

To round out its best-in-class phone app, Pulse SMS re-imagines your communication by giving you the ability to sync your SMS and MMS messages across all of your devices. Send and receive texts and pictures—seamlessly—from your computer, tablet, car, or any device with an internet connection.

This is text messaging, done right.


A Taste of the Features
Pulse SMS is jam packed with features. On top of syncing between all of your devices, here is a small taste of what makes it the ultimate text messaging experience:
- Unparalleled design and fluid animations
- Endless global and per-conversation customization options
- Suggested Smart Replies within conversations
- Password protected, private text conversations
- Share GIFs with your messages, from Giphy
- Powerful searching through messages and conversations
- Automatic message backup and restore with a Pulse SMS account
- Preview web links
- Blacklist pesky spammers
- Delayed sending to give you time to edit or cancel messages you send
- Automated replies based on contacts, keywords, and driving/vacation modes
- Dual-SIM support

Encryption Protocol
First and foremost, all of your conversations are stored in end-to-end encryption. You never have to worry about your data leaking out and no one can see your messages except for you, not even the Pulse SMS Team! With Pulse SMS, you get privacy and peace of mind, right out of the box.

Privacy Protection Proof
In technical terms, we use PBKDF2 to encrypt your password and use it as a key to encrypt messages and conversations.

Technical Encryption Overview

1) When an account is created, we generate two salts. One to use with authentication and one for end-to-end encryption.

2) The one that we use with login is straight-forward and normal. We store a version of your password, hashed against the first salt, and authenticate you against this hash.

3) For the encryption, we hash your password against salt #2 and store it locally on your device (computer/tablet/phone). Having this key is the only way that you can decrypt messages. Since no one else has the password that was hashed against the second salt, no one else will be able to decrypt anything.

We share our privacy protocol publicly so our users have peace of mind knowing their password is never stored anywhere and without that password, there is no way to create the secret key used for encrypting and decrypting the content stored in the backend.

Supported Platforms
Pulse SMS has a web app that you can use. It also has native apps for tablets, MacOS, Windows, Google Chrome, Firefox, Linux, and even Android TV. Check out all of our platforms, along with screenshots, here: https://home.pulsesms.app/overview/


Pulse SMS is the premier web, computer, and private texting application on Android. Everything is instant, setup is a breeze, and it's design is unlike anything you have ever seen.

pulse is okay. it's a paid version of qksms or textra, but without any additional features to warrant the subscription fee. pulse gets the job done in that it sends and receives messages, but there's no real development or premium features that i have noticed. if one were to set their dns to block ads system-wide, and then go with a free, reputable messaging app, the experience would be identical.

I've had Pulse SMS (free) for a few years and it served me well. Recently switch phones to a Pixel 6A. I was able to copy over the app (and text messages) w/o a hitch. However, it keeps asking me for the Paid version trial, and can't get past that pop-up screen. I had to switch messaging app because of this.

Been using Pulse for years and was happy with it. Until today. I got a new phone and had problems transferring data. I download the app thinking it's the same old app. These POS's let you download the app then immediately want you signed up for their monthly or yearly plan. No option to stay on the free app. They can FO to the nth degree.

Hi Alison, if you have an active premium subscription, you can simply log in to your existing Pulse SMS+ account by tapping [Have an account? Sign in] at the top-right of the premium upgrade screen. There's no need for you to purchase a new subscription in this case. Please mail us at support@pulsesms.app should you need further assistance. Cheers.
