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.

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 have now been waiting almost 36 hours for a response from the Burner team, after sending at least 3 messages to their support email. I have had an auto-renewing line for more than six months. I recently changed the number (for the first time) and their system automatically burned it (deleting all the text messages at the same time???!!!) three days before it was set to renew? When I received an alert that my number was set to burn, I contacted support, expressing my confusion—after all, my subscription was paid. They eventually replied, asking for my number. I immediately answered. When I got another alert, I wrote again. And again. Nothing! No response! Then I received an alert that my number had been burned and all messages deleted! I wrote to Burner again, and that was Saturday afternoon. It is now after 11am on Monday and I have had no response from the company. That is not acceptable support and I am very displeased. Mind you, they still have my money and I fully expect to be changed again in two days. Use this service at your own risk and copy everything immediately. :(
I’ve had this app for several years. It’s worked flawlessly for years. Now, I wake up to a message stating my number has been deleted. I’m a sales rep and continuously use my phone with text messages daily. All my clients gone! I have this on auto renewal and till this day shows that it’s going to renew August 8. My number is on all my business cards as well. I desperately need all my info back. I have sales pending with clients and have no way of looking at my messages. Please fix this! Extremely urgent that I get everything back.
The number was on auto renewal, and yet the subscription was cancelled. I reached out to support when I noticed the subscription was sending me notifications of canceling a line that was supposed to be on auto renewal and yet my account was deleted and all data and new contacts were gone. Now, all of my new contacts who were provided the burner can no longer reach me.
Allow messages to be sent in groups so I don’t need to keep retyping the same message also don’t make it so it’s a group chat like separate chats same msg
This is a horrible app if you plan to use the auto-renew line. Although, payment is made, it DOES NOT automatically apply it to your account so your number will still Burn/delete!! I contacted support the first month and per their instructions everything appeared correct. They may have recovered my number the first month but then I got the notice that it would burn again the following month. I had this number on my business cards!! I should have paid more for Sideline. I used that when it was free and you won’t lose your number! This app needs a lot of work so don’t plan on using it as a 2nd private line!!
I was having issues with sending and receiving messages and followed the instructions (to close the app, or log out and log back in, or delete and reinstall the app) to resolve the issue and now it won't let me log back in. "We had a problem sending your verification code. Make sure you phone's international settings are set to a supported country and try again" I have customers that can't reach me at the moment. Was having business conversations when it started. This is just ridiculous!
Too bad the creaking thing won't work right, either service unavailable and some other issue! I want to refund only had this thing for less than a day and it already a problem
Just subscribed today and it’s highly unreliable! Concept is good. Texts come through my notifications but I have a huge problem actually checking texts. I’ve received a call without an issue and sometimes texts are flawless.. but then suddenly I stop being able to see the messages coming through. It’s frustrating! I don’t know what the problem is but it needs to be sorted or ill quickly be canceling
I’m with this company over 3 year and i just pay my monthly a week ago today surprise i lost my number and my messages and really they don’t care i try email them no one respond so BE AWAY
Double charged me for credits then none of the credits were applied look elsewhere for a burner they make it waaaay to complicated !
