Tired of sharing your personal phone number with everyone but don’t want to get a second SIM card or eSIM just for private communications? Burner lets you create temporary, disposable phone numbers for any occasion.

🌐Spam-Free, Private Connections

Say goodbye to annoying callers and intrusive messages. Our award-winning spam-blocking feature means you can connect confidently without the fear of spam calls and texts.

🙃 Simplify Your Busy Life

Burner provides essential tools, like private SMS text messages, and organizational features, like color-coded inboxes, to effortlessly manage your communications — no matter what you’re talking about.

⏰ Set Boundaries with Do Not Disturb

Need some uninterrupted me-time? Burner's Do Not Disturb feature allows you to establish quiet hours or specific times when you don't want to be bothered by calls and text messages.

🔥 Burn Your Phone Number When You Don't Need It

When you no longer need your second phone number, simply burn it with a single tap. Any connections and text messages associated with that second number are permanently deleted, leaving no trace behind. Talk about powerful privacy.

📩 Auto-Replies for Effortless Communication

Burner offers auto-reply functionality, allowing you to set up automatic responses to incoming messages. Stay connected and communicate effortlessly, even when you're unable to respond immediately.

📞 Voicemails and Enhanced Communication Features

Never miss an important message on your second phone number with our voicemail functionality, ensuring that callers can leave you messages when you're unavailable. Other features (some premium) include AI voicemail sorting to sift through the noise, improved call quality, and video messages for fun, private video chats.

Almost a year after reporting the voicemail issue below & being told it is a known problem, I still have no solution. same runaround from support. 8/2023 review Great idea, mediocre implementation. I have used this app for over a year now and constantly have problems retrieving voicemails. I get a call & they leave a voicemail & I can almost never retrieve it. I have reported the issue several times and get the same response, delete and reinstall. That never fixes the problem. ...

Works great for calls and personal texting. Kind of hit-and-miss when it comes to receiving one-time verification codes. Some apps work just fine, some (I'm lookin' at you Signal) do not. Not sure why. You can "burn" the old number and get a new one though, so comes in handy sometimes for social media when you might want to "disappear" for a while. Overall, a handy, well-thought-out app with a decent user interface for managing your calls and texts. I like it.

I pay for this app, and it's horrible!!! Incredibly glitchy, if I click on one phone number or takes me to a completely different text I already responded to, it freezes, can't hit the back button, kick me off app and have to relog in constantly forcing me to miss calls and texts I needed to respond to faster, super super annoying!!!! I would not recommend
