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.

  • Not receiving code

    By imToolman777
    I’m not receiving verification code so I can’t even use this.
  • Good for regular text and phone calls

    By bbwfighttheworld
    As far as sending and receiving standard text messages it works well. Calling works pretty well also. I am paying for a renewing line and my phone number is attached and I cannot send not receive picture messages. Kind of irritating. I’m not getting the full functionality I thought I would.
  • Do not download this app !!!

    By trives92
    I downloaded the app ! The trial went well ! After that I subscribed and paid for a year ! Chose the number that I wanted and it actually belonged to someone !!! The number was used already !!! I am so upset with them !! They haven’t responded to my email also !
  • Pretty good for craigslist and work stuff

    By Jack M Hoffman
    I use it a lot and found it to be better than the imitators.
  • No notification icon, not a suitable replacement (iPhone 6+ with iOS 11.4)

    By TofuNerd17
    The app is other stellar, but the lack of badge icons to notify when a message is received, this isn't suitable as a second line system. I'm a long term Burner fan. But as of late, I'm disappointed.
  • Fix the Bugs

    By HannahSchotty
    I am a case manager who uses this app to communicate with my 70+ clients. I enjoy the layout and the price per month is not bad. When the app runs as it should I have no complaints, but I’ve experienced multiple occasions in which at the end of using it for many phone calls it stops all outbound calls and the app itself just appears to stop working (no calls or texts, can’t add contacts, can’t receive anything and it is not sending my verification code upon logging out in an attempt to fix it). On certain days, like now, this has been extremely inconvenient and frustrating when I am trying to maintain contact with clients I am fitting into a busy schedule. If you are looking for a second number that your job will heavily rely on, I can’t say this is a good choice due to this. If these bugs could be fixed, I would give it 5 stars.
  • Broken AGAIN

    By AlexaShrugged
    For the umpteenth time Burner’s broken! I’m getting notifications that I’m getting messages and I can read them in my iPhone notifications but the messages do not appear in the app and none of the messages I am sending are going through, I’m just getting errors. Never mind the fact we’re going on 2 years of badge notifications not working... Come on, this is the only app I pay for and it’s also the only app that consistently gives me problems! I guess you DONT get what you pay for.
  • Setup doesn’t work!!

    By LarryChicago
    Errors out while setting up, text messages come through but the app won’t move past send text screen to let me put the code in. Completely worthless
  • Rip off

    By down2you77
    This app is a rip off like most apps. Dishonest business. The first night I downloaded it I purchased 15 additional credits. I noticed the next time I used it only 5 credits were shown. I immediately contacted them and asked why and how to get the credits I paid for. This prompted a back and forth string of emails one after the other of them telling me I didn’t buy credits. They came up with one story after another until finally telling me I bought an extension of some kind. I didn’t even know what an extension was but I know how to read English quite well and I know what the word credits looks like. Long story short, I’m out the money for credits and these people are dishonest. Don’t spend your money on this app.
  • App crashes and leaves you dead in the water

    By Ryansal333
    If you’re planning to use this 2nd line to sell items on Craigslist, contact customers etc. and any reason to privatize your cell, think twice. The app will work just fine for weeks at a time, and suddenly it will crash for days and you will sporadically not receive phone calls / texts.
