Why do I need to verify my phone number?

Snoozester requires that you verify each phone number that you add to your account before you may receive wake up calls or reminders from Snoozester. Verifying phone numbers helps to prevent misuse of Snoozester by making it difficult to add someone else's phone number without their permission.


How do I verify my phone number?

After you add a phone number, Snoozester will automatically prompt you to verify that number by phone call or text message. If the number is a mobile phone number, you should verify it by text message so that you will be able to receive both calls and text messages from Snoozester. If your phone number is a landline (like a home phone number), you should verify it by phone call.

What is the difference between EasyAwake and SecureAwake?

When you schedule a SecureAwake call, we willl keep calling you every three minutes (for up to 20 minutes) until you let us know that you’re awake (just answer the call and follow the voice prompt).

If you schedule an EasyAwake call, we will only attempt the call one time.


What is a Snoozester Character?

Don’t let the name fool you: the Snoozester staff is one lively bunch. Their job is to make sure you wake up on time. When you schedule a call, you also decide which of our “characters”—prerecorded voices—will greet you the next morning. If you want to live dangerously, just choose "Random Character" and see who you get. Snoozester characters are the fun voices on the other end of the phone that greet you when you answer your Snoozester wake up call. Click here to meet all of the Snoozester characters.


Can I schedule a repeating wake up call?

What is the difference between a reminder call and a reminder text message?

When you schedule a reminder call, you will be prompted to type in a short reminder message (e.g. "Dentist appointment at 3:00 PM"). When the scheduled time arrives, Snoozester will call you and read your reminder to you over the phone using text-to-speech. If you schedule a reminder text message, Snoozester will send an SMS text message to your mobile phone with the text of the reminder at the scheduled time.


What is PayPal?

PayPal is the company that processes payments for Snoozester; PayPal is one of, if not the most, well-known payment processing companies on the web.


Why does Snoozester use PayPal for payment processing?

We understand that the web can be a scary place, so we don't force you to trust Snoozester with your credit card or bank account information. Whenever you click on a button or a link to pay for a Snoozester service, you will be directed a secure page on PayPal's site (where you will be requested to complete your payment). After you complete your payment, PayPal alerts Snoozester that you have made a payment, but your personal financial information is never sent to Snoozester.


Do I need a PayPal account to use Snoozester?

You do not need a PayPal account to create a Snoozester account or sign up for a Snoozester plan.
