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 don’t want to stay connected forever.

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

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+++++"

Customer Reviews

One of the best apps out there!!!

The unlimited burners are the best! I have several that I use and give different friends different numbers that way I can narrow it down if someone's giving out my number. Also great for Craigslist contacts (it already saved me from one scammer!) and there are so many uses that it's insane. Works beautifully and I would consider it a MUST HAVE APP!!! I just can't say enough good things about this app. Give it a try and you'll see for yourself the benefits of having multiple numbers that you can extend or burn whenever you need to.
Awesome work on such a great program!

Well worth it

I have been using this app for over two years. For special purpose phone numbers it's the best. Whether it is selling something or car shopping or whatever, it is extremely handy to have a working number to give the salesman, mechanic or customer that you don't want to be bothered by for the rest of your life. ONLY those few family and friends that I want be able to find me get my real number.

One of the Must Have Apps

I have an iPhone 6+ so I reserve the real estate on my home screen where my right thumb can reach for the apps I used the most. Burner is on the bottom right because I use it so much. I got phone numbers for people who work for me, phone numbers for selling stuff, phone numbers for annoying uncles who call and breathe heavily into the phone. I don't know what I did before I had this app. Highly recommend using it for peace of mind.
