Welcome to Burner, your phone within your phone. 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. With Burner, you can set boundaries with spam call blocking, do-not-disturb settings, and more to ensure that you’re always in control of your communications.
Burner is free to download and free to try. Get a free 7-day trial and a real second line to try with our enhanced privacy, spam-blocking, and communication features. 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.

I've been using this app for a while now, it's good! Not that many issues, aside from a few that I think could be easily fixed via patch. For example, I have to exit texting back into the main 'menu' in order to see a new text message. It's doesn't always show up while in the texting portion. Another issue is, the picture preview is really tiny and if someone sends you a video? It won't actually play it in app, if you download a video sent to you, it'll only save a frame from that video.

Had been using this app for a few years and it was great. The recent change to the interface is confusing and harder to navigate. Just to get to one number if you have multiple numbers working requires too many clicks. I haven't had the connection issues others have had but I definitely am not fond of the new GUI. Why the change in the first place?

Happy for years, but it's BAD now...outbound calls SOMETIMES work, inbound, never. Pixel 6 - I cannot answer a call! If locked, the screen is black. If unlocked, no pop,-up. I just hear ringing three times, and it goes to voicemail. What the hell is this? The app was perfect 3 years ago with a better, clear UI. It even functioned better than my regular phone app. Just roll it back or something! We are paying for a product you are not delivering. Nightmare on Android 12!
