Description

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.

Disappointed

Disappointed that I can’t get calls unless I have internet.

Meh

Good cheap app for what it does but I started getting spam calls to my actual number from my area code as soon as I started using it. Deleted.

Horrible and confusing

I got a burner number for work and then one day it disappears and tells me I now have to pay for it. I lost the number and anyone who contacted me through that number. Very disappointing.

Serious lack of basic functions

3
Love the app! But it lacks a lot of what I expect to be basic functions. I emailed the devs over a year ago and I received a polite response. Dozens of app updates later and nothing has changed AT ALL except they added some worthless notification page that provides BS info about the app itself that virtually no one will care about. So stupid. 1. Why do message time stamps not include the year? Do I need to go through a calendar myself to check that a message I received "Thursday, August 16" occurs in 2018? And for sh'ts and giggles: also in 2012. 2. Why do new messages I receive while I have the app open NOT play a sound? Response time is critical for me and I often miss messages because I blinked the moment the notification banner appeared and quickly disappeared; or I have the phone unlocked on my desk with the app open, and I'm not actively looking at the phone. So now I often have to open every single burner tab to chase down a message I may OR MAY NOT have missed because the app itself doesn't tell me. 3. Why can't burner tabs have a badge for new messages next to their names so I don't have to manually hunt for new messages (messages I may not even have, but I need to be constantly aware)? When I do have a new message, the app icon (iOS native function's notification badge) shows "3" so I open the app. But, which burner has the 3 new messages? Let's manually scan every single burner tab until I find it! 4. What's with the "All Recent" tab? Why can't it show me new messages chronologically from all burners. As it is now, it shows me recent burner (and not necessarily recent messages) which makes no sense to me how that would be useful to anyone managing multiple burners. For example, if I have 2 new messages in 2 burners. "All Recent" will show me the most recent burner with the most recent message. That other message will be displayed only after you scroll past all the messages of the currently displayed burner. Only when you finally scroll to the next burner, its recent message will show. Show recent messages, not recent burners! 5. Contacts with more than 1 number will often display the wrong number. For example, if I have a contact saved as Tim Chef, with phone number 1111; 2222; and 3333... and maybe he contacts me with 2222. The app will randomly display any one of his numbers and I can't tell which number is truly contacting me.

Lacking BASIC features

2
No group text, if your Burner number is used in group text you don’t receive the message. In-app calling over data doesn’t work if the app has been idle in background for 30 minutes you don’t receive the call. No Dark Mode. Cannot change text tone (defaults to Tri-Tone).
By PhatPJ

Very useful for mystery shopping

My only complaint is sometimes my voicemails won’t load, which is frustrating when trying to follow up with people.
By Nealson

Every once in a while (or very 15 seconds) we need to verify...

1
I haven’t used the app in a while, but after opening it recently I was prompted four times within 60 seconds to verify my phone number. I successfully verified my number every time, but as soon as I tried to do literally anything in the app, I had to verify my number again. This app used to be great, but for me at least, it’s now unusable. Deleted. iOS 14.0.1 iPhone XS.
