Privacy Policy

General Overview

The Lanren SMS forwarder App is owned and developed by This page describes Lanren SMS forwarder's Privacy Policy and we promise to you that we will never, ever knowingly or willingly breach your privacy.

The Lanren SMS forwarder

The app is sold via Google PlayStore, who are subject to privacy provisions as governed by their respective countries. When you purchase the app, it is a native app downloaded to your phone. With your express permission, the app automatically reads incoming text messages and forwards these to the mobile numbers you specify. The app does not send any of this back to us at all as it operates on your phone handset and we don't see this at all.

Collected Information

When you use the Application, you grant the Application access to the data stored on the device, including, but not limited to, SMS messages, contacts, the type of mobile device you use, your mobile device's unique ID, the IP address of your mobile device, your mobile operating system, the type of mobile Internet browsers you use, and information about the way you use the Application.

Location Information of the Device

This Application does not collect information about the location of your mobile device.

SMS to SMS forwarding is not encrypted by our app, as you would need a decrypter at the other end to read the texts, so this would be very poor experience for recipients. However, SMS is generally secure by default as the data is encrypted by the telco networks themselves. Android also has many security features within your device by default.

The Lanren SMS forwarder - Forward To Email Feature

If you use the Forward To Email function or the Low Battery Alert or Missed Call Notice email options, the app needs to contact our server in order to access server software (called an API) which 'translates' the forwarded SMS from your app-phone into an email, and forwards this email to the email address/es you specify. The forwarded email will come FROM This API merely acts as a 'translator' or electronic "handshake" and is not a database, therefore cannot store any info from any messages. Again we have no reason, or desire to collect data, as it's of no use to us whatsoever.

The data sent from your phone to our API, then from our server to an email client is encrypted.

Customers From European Countries (EEA) And The GDPR (EU General Data Protection Regulation).

If you reside in the EEA, we store certain details (as discussed above) and process information about you only where we have legal basis for doing so under applicable EU laws. We collect and use your information only where it's required to enable the service to operate, provide technical support, and satisfies a legitimate interest that is not overridden by our duty to protect your data.

You have the absolute right to change your mind anytime, however note that this does not affect any processing that has already been done in the past. Where we are using your information because we or a third party (such as those mentioned above) have a legitimate interest to do so, you have the right to object to that use and demand that we remove any records we may hold. But this may mean no longer using the app.

We'd like to underline the fact that we use third-party services (Google, Alibaba) to make the subscriptions happen. We chose these companies because of their commitment to privacy and being ethical operators, but we cannot be held responsible for any issues or problems that arise with these companies that may affect our app. If we become aware of any problems, we will notify you via a push message where possible, and on this website and remedy any situation as soon as possible.

Lanren SMS forwarder uses minimal data. If you use the Forward to Email or Forward to API or any of our subscriptions, the app requires access to the internet either via wifi or mobile data, or a combo of both to ensure reliable service. This is common for most apps. However we are not responsible for any data costs or SMS fees, or your phone plan, or internet service fees you may incur using this app. This is entirely your responsibility. If you do not accept this, we are happy to refund you for the price of the app.

By purchasing and using the app, you agree with the terms on this page.
