Description

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.

  • Threatened Legal Action Against Me

    I've never threatened anyone, or sent porn or ANYTHING! Used this app as a work phone and the company literally threatened legal action against me for no reason.
  • Did not serve my purpose

    I have no issue with the cost. Happy to pay if it works. It seems the numbers are tied to a known carrier so that you can’t use them to get confirmation codes when signing up for email accounts. I was trying to be anonymous in donating some virtual goods for a good cause and couldn’t get an outlook account using this number.
  • Can’t be used with online numbers.

    You can’t set up any burner number unless you use a “real” cell carrier number. So basically defeating the whole purpose of a burner phone, as a carrier number ostensibly, be easily linked to the account holder. For my purposes, I need a number in the States, but I’ve been out of the States for ages, and need a number at the moment. I have other established google voice numbers, but I need a clean one. I can’t even use this to link to a Google voice number, as its not a “real” carrier, like Verizon or sprint. Would be handy for simple random things, if I had a stateside carrier at the moment. Edit: Is there any particular reason, law, or technological hurdle, as to why you can’t use VOIP numbers like Google Voice?
  • Useless & Costly

    For privacy issues, to avoid using my personal need knee, I purchased several burners with subscription for the sole use of registering Gmail & LinkedIn profiles (which require a phone number to verify). Literally NONE of the Burner App numbers work for the intended purpose, and you don’t find that out until after purchase. A failed experiment; time and $$ I won’t get back. Thanks, Burner App! Update April 2018: Months after discontinuing my subscription and unlinking my PayPal account, the developer has continued to charge me for the subscription fee—this time, immediately after I had added a new credit card. Shady AF.

    I tried several apps and all they did the work as expected, but this one really worked very well for me and was very easy to sign up without the hassle or collecting so much personal information like others, the free trial was amazing that’s why I got convinced that was I was looking for, MMS SMS worked perfect and that’s all what I needed.
  • Subscription is broken, can’t use what I paid for

    April 2018: I have an unlimited subscription but it’s telling me I’ve run out of credits and need to upgrade to be able to send more texts. When I try to upgrade it tells me I already have an unlimited subscription...so I’m stuck in a loop with no way to contact people! I bit the bullet and bought credits to tide me over until support gets back to me, but I’m limited to 170 texts and no picture messaging - ugh! I don’t know how long that will last me! Still no badge notifications either (see below) January 2018: This is getting ridiculous! For the last 8 month badge notifications weren’t working but now in the last 24 hours I haven’t received any notifications of any kind. And yes, I’ve checked that they’re on and that I’m not on DND. An app I pay $5 a month for shouldn’t have badge notifications problems, never mind notifications not working AT ALL!
  • Glitchy

    It hardly notified me of phone calls and text messages. Also spam messages are sent to your contact list which was annoying. Go to WhatsApp instead of this.
  • Love it

  • Pure evil, Burner sells your data to Facebook

    By Swarms of Things
    I don’t have Facebook app installed on my iPhone and never log in from there. After installing Burner on the phone, then logging into Facebook on my laptop, my profile under Ads / Your Interests / Other, shows the Burner app with the descriptor “you have this because you installed the Burner app”. I had used this app for selling on Craigslist, but no longer. Horrible breach of privacy, and this company needs to be outed for this garbage.
