Burner is the market-leading private phone number app — a second line for calling, texting, and picture messaging in everyday situations. Did you know that your personal info is attached to your phone number and easily searchable online? Every time you give out your real phone number, you risk exposing your personal information. Only give your number to people you trust. For everyone else, there's Burner.
HOW BURNER WORKS
With Burner, you're in control of your personal information. No one can find your real number from your Burner number. We intercept calls on your Burner and route them to your cell phone so no one can see your real number. Since you can call, text, and manage your contacts from within the app, you don't have to carry a second device.
Use Burner for everyday situations. Create a disposable phone number for dating, salespeople, deliveries, shopping online or selling items on Craigslist. You can use it as a longterm second phone number for your business or side projects. Integrations with Dropbox, Google Drive, and Slack allow you to archive messages and voicemails, and communicate with your team. Create multiple numbers, keep them as long as you want, or burn them anytime. Share your Burner with anyone and everyone, or keep your new number secret for anonymous texting. No hassles, no contracts.

Ratings and Reviews
Very useful application
I’ve been very pleased with this app. It works as advertised. I regularly use it so I don’t have to give out my real number on sites like craigslist. The service isn’t free, but I would not expect it to be. I like how it gives me the option to get rid of a temp number right after use, or keep it for as long as I may choose to. I can also have multiple lines active at once.
The only issue I have had has nothing to do with the developers. Some of the numbers it activates receive an excessive amount of spam callers. This is annoying at times but that is a risk you will always run into when getting a new phone number, as it has most likely been used by someone else before.
After having installed app, started getting tinder spam texts. Deleted app!
Burner is NOT FREE
I like your app idea. However, I HATE when you and others say product is Free. It is NOT FREE! Only the download is Free. Then after 7 days, you have to decide which plan you want to subscribe to, or delete app.
Many seniors, such as I am, are on fixed income. Our group is bombarded with this and that, all costing money. Or bombarded by scammers.
We are constantly asked to subscribe to one thing or another. If I added what I have to pay in subscriptions, it ends up being more than my monthly expenses for medical and RX.
Please erase the free app part. Unless, a new category is made stating: free app with download, BUT after trial period, must subscribe with a fee.
Otherwise say free download of app. Fees for subscribing.
