Burner’s got a new look! Not only that, but the features were improved to make life easier for you (we got you!). We’ve rebranded & updated everything from the logo to the app interface, but we’re still the market-leading second phone number app that allows you to have multiple numbers for multiple reasons. We arm you with the texting, calling, and organizational tools you need to manage the various aspects of your busy life. We’re a second phone number app, sure, but at our core we’re just trying to help you navigate this wild, weird world in the easiest, safest way possible. HOW BURNER WORKS Burner is the only app that provides you with total control over your communications boundaries by providing multiple phone numbers with settings for work, life, play, and more. However, it’s so much more than just a second phone number app for calling & texting. You’re able to do so much more than text now… Burner allows you to use your phone with unlimited anonymous numbers. This means that you can enjoy multiple phone numbers with unlimited calling, texting, and possibilities while keeping your personal number private. Use Burner to: Maintain your privacy & keep your number safe Organize your social circles Protect your anonymity Communicate freely with spam blocking & muting Set boundaries with do-not-disturb settings Attain inbox bliss with enhanced organizational features Call and text now with immediate, unlimited calling & texting Privacy features abound, but we’ve also enhanced our organizational features so that you’re able to incorporate Burner into your everyday life, whether you’re a solopreneur, love online dating, or simply just need multiple numbers for multiple life passions.

Additional numbers are available through subscription, making it easy to add more lines whenever you need them. BEST IN CLASS We’re not here to brag (okay, maybe a little), but we’ve been featured as a TIME Magazine Top 50 App and we’ve appeared in The New York Times, WIRED, TechCrunch, Engadget, and more. Why do they all love us so much? You can download the app to see for yourself, but we’ve been recognized for excellence and innovation (and the fact that we offer real numbers, not fake phone numbers or second lines that only work for a week). Burner is the most reliable and fully featured virtual phone number app available, boasting premium calling & texting features that include blocking, muting, and do-not-disturb settings plus the ability to easily switch lines when needed. After all, life is complicated enough. Your phone doesn’t have to be.

It’s almost perfect. (UPDATE 2 )

Updated 3/2023: 1) PIN entry is still sluggish when switching between apps. 2) The PIN pad still appears in the app switcher. Most apps blur everything for security. 3) when you enter someone’s number, it doesn’t auto-populate the conversation history. So you don’t know if you’ve messaged that person before until you send a message…then the chat history pops up. 4) Pictures randomly go blank and can’t be opened. 5) The chat box gets stuck halfway up the screen even when the keyboard is down. Original: Three remaining problems I’ve found with the app: 1. The PIN protection is sluggish when switching to the app. (STILL) 2. Also, it would be better to NOT show the pin pad on the App Switcher view, as this looks suspicious(STILL). Most secure apps just blackout the thumbnail preview. 3. There is no way to see who you have blocked unless you add them to your contacts.(NEW) 4. There is no way to show individual time stamps on messages. (FIXED) 5. You can’t paste a phone number into the TO field. (FIXED). 6. You can’t easily block someone from the message screen. It is counter-intuitive to “add contact” for someone you want to Block. So if I don’t like someone, first I have to add them to my contacts? Then, I have to go to the contacts list, click the contact, edit, and select block. (FIXED)

Not Worth It

Besides them, allowing you to have three numbers paying for this is not worth, it. Since you can’t send video and often times when people call me my burner app phone doesn’t ring it just shows a missed call. 1 Star

All text not loading

Am paying for a number and can’t even read all my text thread with the person I’m chatting with. It always only allows me to see only a certain amount of text, I can’t scroll back further in the conversation. Why is this. I’m paying for this number and text are unlimited w this subscription- I should be able to read all my text from earlier in the day or yesterday.

Waste of time and money

I tried to use it to set up a Google voice number. Google recognized it was a fake number and did not send the verification code

Complete Scam

Do NOT give these people you’re money
By OriginalGuy5

Bad changes

Great app. Used it for years. BUT…. Now you cannot add on more credits to the number your using, so you have to pick a new number every month. You are also NOT able to subscribe for just one line. This is unhelpful. I will have to look around and see what other apps or sites will allow me to do this. Disappointed.
