Internal Messaging System

The site makes use of an internal messaging system, so you will never have to give out your private contact details until you are ready. Our members safety and security is very important to us.

Once you have established contact and trust with pen pals through the Global Penfriends internal messaging system, you are free to discuss how you will communicate with your new friends outside of our website - whether it be by post, email, phone, chat app or other software. Many of our members are looking for a combination of both internet friends and postal penpals.
