her mother has access to her phone and everyone she texts, so a texline isn't an option. but thanks for the ohter stuff.

does her mother have a screen tracking app or does she just go through your friends phone? because if it’s the former, that sucks, and if it’s the latter, she could just delete the messages immediately after
