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.

The applications Burner - 2nd Phone Number was published in the category Utilities on 2012-04-01 and was developed by Ad Hoc Labs, Inc. The file size is 50.62 MB. The current version is 3.8.3 and works well on 10.0 and high ios versions.
Version 3.8.3 fixes a bug where a small number of users were experiencing a crash when initiating a test call.
I love this app! After doing some research on what the best option was for a 2nd phone line on my iPhone I decided to go with Burner & I’m glad I did. So far no problems whatsoever and it allows me to keep certain calls/contacts separate in my iPhone & my life. It’s great. Calls are clear, texts sent quickly, I love it. Price-wise it’s also the most affordable, an unlimited line for around $5.00 a month, that’s so much cheaper than other apps offering the same service. I’ve seen a lot of people complain that they don’t like seeing their own # pop up when their burner line rings and that it takes getting used to but in the app you have the option to set it where the callers # shows when calling, not yours so that’s been fixed by the developers. So far, I love this app and will keep it indefinitely, $5.00 a month is a small price to pay for the piece of mind I get. My only issue is a small one, which is why I only gave the app 4 ⭐️’s and it’s cosmetic in nature, but still annoying. In the settings you can change the appearance of your burner, the background color or add a photo...I have added a photo as the background numerous times only to have it reset to the original setting within a day or so, going back to just a background color, no pic. I set the pic and again, it disappears by the next time I use my burner. Silly, but it would be great if this could be fixed. Then I’ll happily give it 5 ⭐️’s because it deserves it!!!
The usual bait and switch crap
At first, when a burner contact got my real phone number, I was very concerned and disappointed but I held my tongue not being sure exactly how they got it through the burner service. Then I gave out my burner number to new contacts and made sure I never gave them my private number as an “experimental control group” and, low and behold, two of them started calling my real number. Now, I have to have my private phone number changed because of this app.
Every time I look around, I’m getting messages from them saying I’m low on minutes and texts. I think there’s a problem. Service is expensive. May do better buying a TracFone.
I receive multiple calls/VM'S daily from individuals who claim they received a missed call from me. I have NEVER made an outbound call using my burner phone number. It's for inbound calls only for my job search efforts. What the heck is going on? Is it possible that another entity has hijacked my burner number?
This has literally saved my life! I have dealt with a stalker for over 10 years 😡 and he always manages to get my cell number, so over the years I have had to constantly change my number which has inconvenienced me greatly. Now I give my burner number to everyone except for family and I haven’t had to stress over changing my number ever again! I haven’t had one issue with texting or calling on the app! It works great with my iPhone 8! Thank you for saving my life! Great product!
Very easy to setup, works as advertised and allows a free trial which is great. One thing to note, you need to tie it to your real phone number. After I did that I found that I was receiving double the number of telemarketing and fraudulent calls. I know these types of things vary in frequency over time so it may be coincidental.
I use burner for online dating until I get to know the person. It works well for the most part. Sometimes photos don’t come through. Also, if you send a long message the app will break it up and send it out of order, which can be frustrating for the recipient.
I’ve used this app for 3 months , I just got a notification from a text that I got two days ago ! This app takes forever in syncing. I once waited 10 minutes to receive a message from someone. It takes too long and it’s not good for people who rely on a second phone number.
the app has quit working and i cannot get into my burner contacts. dont get.
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
Let’s me do everything I need to without giving my personal number out!!
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
I use this app for providing customers a number other than my personal cell. It’s fast and easy. Because I expense the monthly payment it would be great to receive a monthly email receipt upon renewal of subscription to use for expense reporting. That’s my only minor issue. Otherwise even pressing 1 doesn’t bother me. Is it possible to check contacts against the number calling and provide information on the caller prior to answering? Thanks!
It’s really good i got blocked by my friend for bugging him and now I can bug him a little more. Just wished you could change your number so I could do more
With the iPhone X running iOS 11.3.1 the app crashes on start up. I believe it’s because it lacks native FaceID support. ☹️ FaceID is working now...increased stars
The one major missing feature is that you can't text video. If it had that, it would be a solid 5 stars. Update: Almost a year later and still no video. Definitely makes it look suspicious when used for dating sites. “What do you mean you can’t get videos?” Me: “Well, it’s not a real phone number...” Most of the time it isn’t an issue, but it’s super annoying when it is.
How can I cancel my subscription ?
App gets stuck and doesn’t send/ receive messages, when I reinstalled the app I couldn't get back in and had to contact support for help, haven’t received any sign from support yet
The app froze on me today. Could not send any text messages or receive any. I have been running my business through this app for quite some time and today’s glitch cost me $200 in business. I am moving my business to Hush a very reliable app. My advice do not use this for your business.
The app is pretty ok, but I had an issue with my number and after almost two weeks they were unwilling to help me. I provided them with all the info they requested and more. I won't be using this app any more!
I bought an limited plan and can't even dial out to use it. I received a single reply to my email and they called the number once and I haven't heard a thing from them in over a week. Most pathetic excuse for customer service I've ever dealt with. Case number 92915. It's been weeks now I want ALL of my money back.
I’ve had the app for a little over 3mths and it worked great! Got a notification to update bug fixes(I had none) and app enhancements. The update made this app sketchy. I am continuously getting an “internal error message” with every attempt to send a text. This will often lead me in to thinking Ive sent something is its actually sitting there pending for me to retry.
