Burner - Free Phone Number for Private Texts, Calls, and Pictures

By Ad Hoc Labs, Inc

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Burner is your “other” number – your work number, Craigslist number, Etsy number or dating number – the one to give out when you need to be in touch, but want the option to disconnect.

Named a TIME Magazine Top 50 App of 2013 and featured in the New York Times, Wired, Engadget, BoingBoing, Lifehacker, and more.

Burner Connections is a revolutionary platform that connects your phone number directly with apps you love, like Dropbox, Slack,and Evernote. Do things that were never possible with phone numbers before: automatically save picture messages and voicemails to Dropbox; route messages to your team on Slack; share audio content to Soundcloud; build an Evernote-powered SMS-bot; and more.

*** NEW Google and Slack integrations ***
Our new Google integration gives Burner users a brand-new ability to archive and log text messages and contacts to Google Sheets in real time, fulfilling a popular feature request. Our improved “Slack 2.0” integration gives Burner users more control over how teams can use Burner from within Slack, as well as a brand-new ability to connect Burner to Slack on a private basis, effectively acting as a desktop client for Burner and a way to “phone-enable Slack”.

Use Burner for everyday situations – web forms, deliveries, salespeople, and buying things on the web – just like any other phone number. Get all the features you need to stay in touch including calls, texts, and picture messages. Create multiple Burners, keep them as long as you want, and burn them anytime – no hassles and no contracts.

Share your Burner with anyone and everyone – and keep your real number private.

What our users are saying:

"It’s so simple to use for texts and calls. You won’t be disappointed!"

"Best all time app…hands down."

"You guys this app is amazing! Perfect and original, especially if you don't want strangers to have your real number. A+++++"

Burner is free to download and free to try. Additional time and numbers are available by in-app purchase or subscription. No hassles; no carrier contracts.

What's New in Version 3.3

Burner 3.3 adds a few much-requested features and improvements, including:

* Do Not Disturb mode - quickly turn off rings and notifications for all of your Burners, then turn them back on to have them revert to the previous setting. Do Not Disturb will also remove Burner information from Spotlight Search when turned on.
* Mark All as Read / Delete All actions - Pull down on the inbox to quickly mark messages and missed call notifications as read, or bulk delete Burner messages.
* Number Picker - When creating a new Burner, you can now choose from a list of available numbers within an area code, instead of getting a random number assignment. We'll also now suggest nearby area codes if for some reason we're out of stock in the one you requested.

We've also added some great new stuff and updates to Burner Connections:

* Google Connection - Connect a Burner to your Google account to archive and auto-add incoming text messages and contacts to a Google Sheet.
* Slack improvements - You can now connect Burner to the @slackbot channel and use an improved set of /burner slash commands.
* IFTTT & Zapier - we've added helpers to our Developer Connection to make it easy to connect hundreds of other great apps via IFTTT and Zapier

As always, we've also added some bug fixes and smaller enhancements, including the ability to paste images into the message composer for picture enabled Burners.

We're stoked about all the good stuff packed into this release - look out for more updates soon. Keep the feedback coming -

Customer Reviews

I Have Only ONE Complaint

I really love this app, hands down. It does everything I need it to do as far as functionality/privacy/security, etc... However, the only complaint I have that's worth mentioning is that when I go to provide my Burner phone number to certain web/service sign-ups, some companies will not allow me to use my Burner# because it detects that I'm using a VOIP (such as signing up for Yahoo! Mail and PayPal, in my specific incidents). I'm going to continue to use and love this app otherwise, however I'd enjoy seeing an update from the developers that fixes this obstacle, if at all even possible. A huge thank you to the app developers, overall!

Horrible customer service

I recently purchased a phone number from burner app for my business and everything was working fine until one day the phone number which I paid for was gone from the burner app. I contacted the burner app support team and they informed me that because of an error in their system I lost my phone number and that I cant have it back because its being used by someone else. They said that they would provide me 8 credits to my account but how is that going to help fix my business. So because of an error on their part I have to suffer and all I want is my phone number which I paid for back! Horrible Customer Service!!!!!!!

This is the real deal, flawless

First off if u need customer service for this app you are a complete and utter moron. Easy to use, easily get new numbers, a couple bucks for a month and 200 texts and 200 mins? For 4 bucks this gets you a burner that doesn't trace back to ur phone and with the touch of a button you can "burn it", getting rid of the phone number and get a new one.
This is a great and must have app above all apps for a specific demographic.
