Download the latest version of FrontlineSMS v2
Once you have downloaded our software, you will need to connect a compatible device to use it. You can read more about that in our FrontlineSMS Overview. FrontlineSMS Version 2 runs in your browser. We support Chrome, Firefox (v 3.5 or later), and Internet Explorer (v 7 and 8 or later). We are actively working to support earlier versions of Firefox and Internet Explorer. For best results, please update your browser at the same time as updating or installing Version 2. If you need further help with getting started check out our help and support page.
Free technical support is also provided via our community site, but is only available to organizations or individuals using FrontlineSMS for non-profit (NGO) activities. If you do not fall into this category, or if you would like more support, please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to find out about our service contracts, project design, training consultancy and technical support services.
