It's easy – 4 simple steps


Write down this code now: 111DFHItxt. On the Step 1 page, enter the code. Tick that you have read the terms and conditions and the privacy statement.

To successfully register with 111 TXT, it is best that you use a ‘desktop computer’ or a ‘laptop’ with the ‘Microsoft Internet Explorer’ browser. Using any other browser on a desktop/laptop or using a mobile phone/tablet may generate issues in the registration process.


On the Step 2 page, enter your mobile phone number and password. The password should be easy to remember and something only you know.

Select a secret question. This is something only you will know, like your cat's name or the make of your car. This is to help you remember your password if you need to change your registration details later.

You will also have to enter a security code. It's some random letters and numbers the computer generates to make sure you are a real person and not spam. All you have to do is copy the letters and numbers into the space provided.


On the Step 3 page, put your name, birthday and email address (if you have one).

Put in the mobile number you use most. If you want to register more than one phone, like your partner's or your second mobile number, then you will need to repeat the process and register them separately.

If you want to, you can put in the details for someone we can contact in an emergency if you can't communicate for yourself.


On the Step 4 page, put your home address. If you want to, you can enter your work address.

You have now created your 'My Registration' account. That means you are registered. You will receive a text and email to confirm.

The last page will say ‘Congratulations!’.
