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.

  • NOT WORKING: didn't receive calls/texts, photos don't send, call durations not visible

    By ifyoupark
    UPDATE: - After many months of subscription and too many past and ongoing app issues, I cancelled my subscription. I will no longer be using Burner. - Dev keeps saying "issues are fixed and gone." But they're not. They aren't truly taking responsibility; it's just lip service and PR. If they really cared, they would stop saying to every complaint that "the issues were only 1 weekend and all the problems are gone." LISTEN TO YOUR CLIENTS. This really rubbed me the wrong way. After developer response, app continued to have more problems. (1) NO APP BADGE NOTIFICATIONS. - I would see Banner notifications, but App Badge still would not display notification count. (2) TEXTS NOT DISPLAYING - After seeing a Banner notification and going to app, new text wouldn't be there. - I have to click into the message chain, wait for messages to reload, then hope it would show up. Sometimes, this takes 3x. - HORRIBLE FOR LIVE CONVOS AND BUSINESS. These bugs have persisted since the app started having issues weeks ago. (3) LIVE CONVO/CHAT NOT DISPLAYING - Whenever I am in a convo, app will NOT DISPLAY responses received, unless I exit and re-enter the convo. In a business chat, I have to keep doing this over and over again. Pulling teeth!! - Since you have NO IDEA that the other party responded, when you reload chat, it's like you had a 1-way convo. Upon re-entering chat, the messages received are IN ORDER, but you've now missed a bunch of texts. Makes you look like a buffoon in business. (4) Photo sending rarely works (5) Support responds within 24 hours to negative iTunes store reviews but the same attention is not given to direct complaints. What does this say about the company? (6) At the end of the day, many people use this app for business. Maybe you had 1 weekend of extreme outage, but per many user reviews, the app has been buggy and had many issues that simply should not have existed to begin with. - I recommended to a few law firms looking into Burner NOT TO USE this unreliable service that is awful for client interface, does not even show phone call durations, and says "all the problems are solved." Simply put, THIS IS NOT OK FOR BUSINESSES DEALING W CLIENTS. ----- THIS MONTH WAS A NIGHTMARE (1) Burner was NOT working for about 1.5-2 wks. This is UNACCEPTABLE for a business line! We SHOULD all receive a DISCOUNT for this month! ** I was not receiving texts on time, some would arrive days later. ** I did not receive any phone calls. (2) I'm STILL not receiving badge notifications for texts or calls. I have to manually open app, click each person, and see if anything loads. (3) As others mentioned, SENDING PHOTO MESSAGES are a NIGHTMARE. I often have to hit resend 6 times, and if that doesn't work, keep sending the same image. (4) When the app did work, there were big delays in receiving phone calls; it had been ringing for a while before I received it. (5) App does not show call durations. This would is an important feature to have for people who use Burner for business and do hourly billing. (6) Support does not respond promptly. They take DAYS to respond. Unprofessional
  • gone downhill

    By Sandyvaag
    used to be good. Many bugs preventing a good experience. Messages that aren’t recent will randomly disappear and not load. Support says the way to bring them back is to send a message to that person. How can you do that what you don’t have their number? Also the features are buggy like the backup option to google docs continually breaks. Used to be a fan of this app but about ready to burn it. Update: Developer reply only confirms exactly what I stated. All messages from past contacts are gone forever if you do not know their number to send them a message. I have a dozen contacts in my business that I had interacted with and now I have no way to contact them. I trusted this app to retain a history that I can continue a dialogue with and now all messages over last 20 days are “burned”, even though I am paying for subscription to keep the number. I am devastated with this missing data. There is no fix. Can’t send someone a message if number is not saved somewhere else.
  • This is a really really really great app

    By iRustin
    Privacy safety Easy to use Dependable I use it every day I will never give a stranger any number Except a burner Love this thing
  • Great app

    By Duval007
    Great app
  • Texts are slow, needs iMessage support

    By Brijam
    Premium subscriber for a long time. Texts often take a long time to arrive in both directions. iMessage support would be ideal.
  • My Subscription Line Was Deleted without warning!

    By Alonzo Chadwick
    I have a paid subscription for 4.99 that auto renews. However, my burner along with all of my texts were deleted. Now it forced me to buy additional credits and purchase a brand new burner with those credits. And there’s no other option accept to upgrade to the 3 lines for $14.99. I lost VERY important business correspondence that I was using as documentation for something legal. Now it’s all gone! HORRIBLE experience!
  • Awesome app!!

    By Bbt352
    This app works amazing to call back scam callers and mess with them!! I use it when I get the same numbers calling my cell phone number over and over again. Thanks for creating such an awesome and easy app to use!!!!
  • Bought a burner line and got ripped off

    By StealthSabot
    I bought a unlimited line and decided to try the burner feature and got ripped off when there was no option to select a new number. Now the app is useless and I wasted $10 on something I can’t even use. Stick with another app. Not worth it.
  • The BEST!!!!!

    By Delete account please
    I just want to let you guys know this app is hassle free. It’s so simple that made it the easiest app I ever used. And the coolest one of all!!!! LOVE IT!!!
  • Best App for additional numbers

    By Ghozt Owl
    Wonderful application. Works like a charm. I’d recommend being able to have an option to change the color, and layout of the text conversation thread.
