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 got to burner through craigslist, and I love the idea. From what I can tell so far, the app is well executed and covers all my needs. The one thing that really tripped me up was the pricing. Looking at the website burnerapp.com I quickly got the idea that this is a paid subscription service, but where are the dollar amounts??? I scrolled up and down, up and down, no mention. Without craigslist I wouldn’t even have downloaded the app without knowing if the pricing makes sense. I finally saw the pricing in the app itself; subscription is easy enough, but the credit system is super complicated, it doesn’t help that the bundles don’t match the costs of the different services (for example, there is a 5 credit service, but only 3 and 8 credit bundles) I felt like at the price booth in an arcade... Eventually I found pricing on the website deep in the support hierarchy, but this must be the best hidden pricing in any subscription service offering, which looks kinda shady. So, great app, but clean up your pricing!
This is probably not an issue with the app, so I changed my review to 3 stars instead of 2. So I wanted to use it as a second number to give people I don’t want to deal with. Twitter demanded I have my phone number on file but there’s no way in hell im giving my cell phone number out to them. So I tried burner. I’d figure it’s worth $5 a month , a very reasonable price btw. Anyway, I’m not sure how but Twitter knew the number wasn’t my actual number. It said something along the lines of “invalid phone number”. How do they know? I tried another one. Same result. So, I still don’t have Twitter because , frankly, I don’t want my real phone number stored on their servers. I can live without twitter. It’s ridiculous that they require a phone number anyway. No wonder they’re going under. Aside from that, Burner does what it says. Anytime I sell something on Craigslist, etc, I use a burner number.
Really buggy app, many missed calls and text messages, not suitable for professional use. I work in a hospital and missed so many calls and messages. Wish I had used the trial instead of paying for the full year. I want my money back!
When I download this app for Craigslist, so many calls coming from unclear numbers and try to do scam & fraud to my account. This app can’t even delete or filter the scammer number. I don’t like this, it’s useless.
I’m waiting for almost an hour for my code to verify my account.. Not a good way to start off
So I got the 3 number subscription. One number started getting calls immediately. One guy said is this the bank. Uhmm sure, give me you account number (kidding). I look up the number I got and it’s listed as an ”Personal Loan Scam” on Nomorobo (Whom they partner with). What give Burner? This is unacceptable. -update. I guess they cannot tell who had the number last. I just went in and burned the old number and requested another and seeing the choices, googled the one I was interested in, made sure it was clean, and created it. We’ll see how it works. However, how do you delete a background? You can select a background, but once created, how to remove it...?
I downloaded this app because I wanted to reroute scam phone calls to this number, but then I saw that it costs $5.00 a month. I deleted the number and the app like it said to if I wanted to cancel, and I also sent an email to the listed email to cancel the account. I got an automated response and then an email saying that the account was no longer active. Still don’t know if I’m going to be charged or not. I’m irritated.
I absolutely love this app, I don’t know what I would do without it or how I would run my business. BUT. The Voicemail feature is absolutely atrocious. If I press play, then press the speaker button, it will play perfectly fine over my speaker. If while it’s playing I turn the speaker option off, click pause, then play again.. it will have an aneurism and start playing the voicemail over itself 2 or 3 times. I have tried everything to fix this so clearly it’s something on the developers end. Other than that it’s amazing!
Lots of messages fail to come through or go out. “I was messaging you and never heard back.”
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
Works great except that I get calls from random people on a daily basis saying that they got a call from my burner number and they are returning the call. I have never used the app to make a phone call, only to text. Very annoying. I will have to find an alternative.
I’ve been with burner since the beginning of the year. At first it worked great then for the last three to four months it began to have one major glitch. Every time I renew a line it gives me a message that my line is about to expire even though I clearly payed for it! It’ll shut down the burner erasing all contacts messages etc. even though I’m payed up! Their support team knows of this glitch and supposedly did a patch but it hasn’t fixed anything! The support team always argues and gives an excuse so they don’t have to fix anything! Stay far away if you value your money and service.
I fixed it myself had to remove it and reinstall now I’m not getting the message with my code! Really?!?
This is THE best thing since toast! I used this to prank my friends and they couldn’t figure out how I do it!!!! Thank you soooo much to whoever created this!!!!!!!!
I am unable to cancel my subscription online or through the App Store so I’ve been paying for the last 3 months even though I haven’t used it! So frustrating!
I downloaded this app a year ago and yes it worked but they are still CHARGING my credit card and make it impossible to cancel your subscription. I hope you guys are smart and stay away from this app.
This app is really the best one! Not only you can receive texts from people but also from Banks as a security texts. Not all Apps can do it. Also you can have multiple numbers in one App!
Craigslist suggested I download this to keep my personal number private. Great idea! 10 texts from potential buyers later and it tells me I’m “running low on texts”, and then promptly requests that I pay for more. No thanks. I wouldn’t have been upset if it was clear that this is a paid service upfront.
I love this app, it is great for the purpose intended. However, it states in the description that I would be allowed to send picture messages... I even pay for the monthly subscription but cannot send pics. Why?!?!
Update : Developer reached out and offered assistance and advice , that right there shows they care and are listening. I changed my review to a 4 star. You just made a customer happy again ! 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.
