How to register for 111 TXT

For now, 111 TXT is only for people who are deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired.

You must register for it to work.

To register for 111 TXT you need to set up a 'My Registration' account. It's how you enter your information into the Police application. Then in an emergency, they know you're deaf, hard of hearing or speech impaired.

It's easy – 4 simple steps


Write down this authorisation code now: 111DFHItxt. On the Step 1 page, enter this authorisation code.

Tick that you have read the terms and conditions and the privacy statement.


On the Step 2 page, enter your mobile phone number in the ‘username’ field, and your chosen 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.


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!’.
