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.

I have nothing but good things to say about burner. Works for what it is intended for. Would definitely recommend it to other people. Thank you!!!!
I needed a line for dedicated work calls and text, and this works great! I know when my clients call and text without worry about giving out my personal number. There’s a lot of options too. Great app.
This service is pretty good overall, but it’s missing one thing. The ability to send and receive videos. This is a deal breaker for me unfortunately and will not renew unless we can fix this within a month please.
I used the Burnerapp as a second line for work. Everything worked fine until the last update, I tried to sign in to use the app and said my account was not active. Contacted customer service by email and was told I had been suspended for “violating the terms of service” which seems pretty vague. No specific response was given as to the violation. Seems kinda funny the suspension was done after the app was renewed for another year of service. Vic23
I think this app is great, other than the fact of having to pay money to get more credits and a longer period of time.
*Update* 06/18/19 Here's a suggestion for users: when you get your burner number set up, add it as a contact, give it a name and its own ringtone, so when your phone rings you don't have to wonder who's calling, i.e. "Generic/Junk#" "Craigslist Ad" Then you can hit "1" as soon as you answer to connect. I use the call announce feature also. And, don't forget to record your voicemail greeting 😉 *End update*. I've had a few burner numbers. Works great for me, and they're good enough for calls and text messaging with people I don't know. I use my auto renewing number as sort of a permanent number for when I order stuff online, fill out forms or have to give out a number for deliveries (furniture) etc. I'll get another one or two for temporary purposes, i.e. give to craigslist buyers, etc. and then burn it. I don't have any of the problems other users reported, such as spam texts and calls. I have nomorobo set up. But if you get that stuff, just burn the number and get another one. That's the beauty of the concept. Btw, if you do get spam texts, just like your regular cell phone, you simply need to reply STOP to stop them. Phone calls? Just block the number! It's so easy... people just need to read the instructions how to use the app.
I just started but so far it’s great.
Initially I wasn’t sure if this App was a product that I would enjoy. I decided to use the app on a trial basis and I had a conflict with my Hardware upon installation and the burner app was not working on my device as described. I reached out to the technical team and they were able to quickly isolate my iPhone X hardware issues and resolve the problem. they Unlocked the premium features of the app so that I may get the full experience during my trial. The customer service I received and ease-of-use inspired me to subscribe to a Annual subscription. Looking forward to seeing this app evolve as improvements and updates are released. Thanks Burner App!
This app is horrible. I used the number for a minute and then realized what a scam it is. Then the number i picked kept calling me! And it was a recording and really ständige experience. Save yourself the hassle and do NOT download!
I’ve been a paying customer for 5 years and had been using the same burner number for the past 3. I used this as my work number because i do a lot of business through craigslist. I had a problem with the app and contacted support. They replied saying my account was terminated. No explanation, no actual support. I need the same number and i really need access to my text messages! They contain all my client information and i have no way of getting ahold of them now, and they have no way of contacting me! Dont trust this app. If this is how they treat loyal customers of 5 years, you’d be better off without this nonsense.
Tells you you can only buy a North American number right AFTER you pay for a subscription. Thanks a bunch.
Why is Australia an option alongside US & Canada at signup... if only avail in the latter countries???
Works well, try 647
A really good useful app Buy it
I'm so annoyed with this. I always miss calls because it never makes a sound when a call comes in. So frustrating.
Despite some press saying otherwise you can't use this on Australia. You log in with your actual phone number to try and create a profile then it tells you it's only suitable for North America numbers and use. Time waster.
Why is it in the Australian App Store?
Surprisingly works ! I now have an American number ( I reside in Australia ) but need it for the purpose of apps requesting an American number for me to access it 😊
👍🏻 works well
When I talk there is a delay and recently there is an echo. I use this for business so it is becoming a problem. One of my coworkers has worked with support to correct the problems but so far it has not been better. If we cannot resolve the problem we will have to look for another app.
I wish they would get rid of that press 1 to answer phone calls and also enhance somehow the phone calls to last longer when someone calls they seem to go to voicemail after 2-3 rings it’s over. It’s good floor outbound but I need the incoming to get better
Overall the app works good except when you’re driving the signal does not transmit well for text, At least on my phone. There is no video option, that’s a must have these days.
This app took money for my monthly subscription and didn’t credit me to renew my line . I had to pay double last month because I needed the line to work and after seeing I was charged and not credited this month as well I will be deleting the app after using it for a year .
The number I choose as a burner always ends up calling me. Are the number we choose someone’s current number? And I already set the setting so that if I get called that it sets the number to the caller and not the burner.
I tried to send some pictures through the app to someone and they were not pulling up in my gallery when I press the icon for the pictures a window opens that says no photos available. But when I go through in my actual phone I have tons of pictures. Please fix ASAP as I really love this app but this has got to change I do have an iPhone if that makes a difference please let me know if there’s an update
Set this up for use in a classified ad (that had not been posted yet). Phone started ringing within seconds of activating the number. If I rejected a call, it would call right back. Text messages, too. Had to burn the number after 5 minutes and delete the app.
Help! Just installed last night and I want it off my phone ASAP but I have to wait 48 hours for burner support to delete my account. This app has hijacked my calls and they give you no way to get out on your own. Don’t download this app.
This app is awful. When a call comes in it rings once and goes straight to voicemail. When a voicemail is received, I can’t hear it at all. I’m missing calls left and right, used this app to create a burner number to sell a car, ended up switching all the adds to use my personal number so I don’t miss the calls.
