Burner is the market-leading private phone number app — a second line for calling, texting, and picture messaging in everyday situations.

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.

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.

  • Burner Phonr

    I just started but so far it’s great.
  • Quick resolution with technical service request

    By INTECHsf
    Initially I wasn’t sure if this App was a product that I would enjoy. I decided to use the app on a trial basis and I had a conflict with my Hardware upon installation and the burner app was not working on my device as described. I reached out to the technical team and they were able to quickly isolate my iPhone X hardware issues and resolve the problem. they Unlocked the premium features of the app so that I may get the full experience during my trial. The customer service I received and ease-of-use inspired me to subscribe to a Annual subscription. Looking forward to seeing this app evolve as improvements and updates are released. Thanks Burner App!
  • Scam! Do not download!

    By AiGrad88
    This app is horrible. I used the number for a minute and then realized what a scam it is. Then the number i picked kept calling me! And it was a recording and really ständige experience. Save yourself the hassle and do NOT download!
  • Terrible experience - no support

    By 3dChrisSD
    I’ve been a paying customer for 5 years and had been using the same burner number for the past 3. I used this as my work number because i do a lot of business through craigslist. I had a problem with the app and contacted support. They replied saying my account was terminated. No explanation, no actual support. I need the same number and i really need access to my text messages! They contain all my client information and i have no way of getting ahold of them now, and they have no way of contacting me! Dont trust this app. If this is how they treat loyal customers of 5 years, you’d be better off without this nonsense.
  • Perfect for work

    By A(:exis
    My company doesn’t provide work phones but still expects us to use a phone for work. Burner has been a lifesaver for this reason and I’ve recommended it to a few of my co-workers who also love the app. I love being able to turn it on do not disturb mode during my non-working hours, as well as being able to record a custom voicemail and being able to set auto-reply messages. I only wish the app would have the option to set the do not disturb mode to set days/hours so I could set it for my work hours and not have to manually turn the do not disturb mode off and on myself.
  • After reading another post...

    By Papafriz
    You use a phone number that might have been used before. Which means you might get calls expecting someone or something else. What I do is wait and see the contact then return call/ text if it was someone I knew or expected. Best service, has saved me in ways you’d have to think about if you had a string of bad luck. Update to Dev(8:48, 13 June 2019): I love your service and I was just trying to explain to others. It’s not your number even if you get spam, the spam comes from previous owners/users of the number. Burn the number and use a different number. This service is such a useful and blessing. I’d rather give a number out that isn’t my personal number of 5-10+years to all the places that have “said they don’t sell your info” or potential crazy.
  • Public-privacy

    By PatriotUSAF
    Great app for keeping your privacy! Very useful as a business number so you don’t have to carry multiple phones. Get a number you want in an area you want.
  • What a great app for a start up business

    By amoemeka
    I’m using this app for my startup business while I’m completing construction on the location. What a great option to have! It’s been seamless.

    By Gio58426853796
    Tougher than anything else to cancel subscription. No matter what you do it auto renews. I cancel the auto-renew and it comes back up on my bill the next month. Scammy service.
  • This app is saving my love life. Thank you.

    By Raftheturtle
    Long story short, I got banned on Tinder because I had a fake account. I wasn’t pretending to be anyone, I was straight up with my intentions: to find people to play video games with. Tinder didn’t like that. Now I’m actually looking to use the app legit, but I can’t because my number is banned. But this app actually works. Now, I have a REAL Tinder account, and I owe it to you guys. I’m gonna try my best not to get banned this time!

    Good app with convenient functions.
  • Mostly good, some bad

    By squideagle
    I’ve been using this for around a year now and it has been great for the most part. Certain issues have occurred like some people not receiving any of my texts even though it says sent. No serious complaints about it; good app just needs some bug fixing updates.
  • Great for Work

    By SquishyManphin
    I travel to meet with clients often and would give out my personal phone so they could get a hold of me while traveling, or vice versa. That turned out to be a bad idea, since the clientele would start abusing my personal line after my time with them was finished. With the burner, I still have the freedom I need so I can contact or be contacted by my clients, give them what feels to be a personal direct line to me, and the number burns automatically. I don’t worry about handing out a number to me because I know they won’t be able to reach me once it burns
  • Glitches

    By mikomiko6969
    I’ve been using this app for almost a couple of years. I wish it could be cheaper. A few glitches in txt managing and sometimes I get lag. If they go down on their prices it would be worth the bang for the buck. But i haven’t really looked hard to find a different app.
  • Awesome

    By Darvin614
    Been using burner for about a year. Never had an issue. If you’re receiving spam, burn the number and get a new one. Pretty easy. I use it for craigslist, letgo , tinder and other situations where I don’t want to give out my real number. So far, Burner is the best app for this that I’ve found. $5 a month is a bargain. Protect your real number and get a burner.
  • No search!

    By samijoon
    Maybe I’m blind but for the life of me I cannot figure out how to search previous text messages! That’s has /got/ to be my issue as I cannot fathom an app like this without a search button was released.
  • Great burner phone

    By k@lbcal
    However canceling is another story!
  • Great App!

    By John Gatti
    It works as advertised for me. No issues.
  • A Lifesaver for living overseas

    By MoTwn
    I live (military) overseas and this app is the best to me. I now have the ability to call and receive text from friends, family and my business. I read that a lot of people get spam. Well that even happens to me when I get a new phone line from the BIG companies state side out there. However once you activate their spam tools that stops the madness. If you’re looking for a burner app this is the app for you hand down.
  • Operates

    By Theorizer
    I have a couple small businesses which is my sole means of supporting my family. I’ve used burner for 2 months to run one of the businesses.
  • Don’t get this

    By Clifford172942
    If the person calls the “burner” number back. It leads right to your voicemail so they know who called. Your real voicemail to your real phone number. It’s stupid
  • Horrible experience

    By baldinithegreat
    Crap service
  • Never again

    By llrrrr
    Burner worked ok for a while ... a few software glitches but basically worked. Then they abruptly canceled my account right after my subscription auto-pay landed, and never gave a real explanation. Avoid!
  • Best 2nd Number App Ever!!!

    By MrsDeRosa
    I have used a few different 2nd line apps, and Burner is by far the best! I’ve used it for over 2 years now. Voicemail & txting is just as easy to use as my normal phone service. Looking any further is a waste of time!
  • It works for me

    By Subtruckerbear
    I love people not having my real number at first and it works
  • Works great for Instagram!

    By 2asuccess
    Other apps won’t verify like this one. Thanks!
  • Works great!

    By sfuller384
    This app works better than advertised. If I was going to change anything I would like to change icon so I can hide on phone. I have been using for 6 months or more and can only say great things!
  • Good app

    By Lajean154
    It’s a good app for what your need in a side phone number. A couple features I think it should have but not a bad app once you know how to use it.
  • Super easy!

    By Loft1gurl
    I’ve been using this app for a couple years and love how easy and reliable it has been for me! Highly recommend!

    By stoliosoda
    Passcode feature broke in March 2019, developer acknowledges its a bug and it still isn’t fixed!!
  • Horrible, Spam experience!

    By bnwing
    This has been the most horrible experience! I signed up for a burner number, & downloaded this app, to advertise a truck I have for sale. In the past 2-1/2 days, I have received over a dozen spam text messages & at least 73 spam phone calls! Day & night! All routed through the app & sent to my regular phone number. The service is calling random people & then calling my line, with those random people’s numbers showing up. When I answer, the confused people are asking me who I am, why I called them, etc. But, they “called” me! On some of the calls I don’t answer, I tried calling back to follow up & it was the same thing... They had never called me & had no clue what was going on, even though their numbers were showing up as missed calls. So, I said “forget this nonsense!” & I logged out of the account, then deleted the app. But, STILL, I kept receiving the automated spam calls! I finally had to just block the “burner” number that I was given so I wouldn’t keep having to deal with this nonsense! It’s been insane! This will be the last time I ever use this! How do I disconnect my line completely from this burner number???
  • Bad

    By Browneeeeeeeee
    I paid the 5 Dollars and it still won’t give me more messages or time
  • Gilbierto

    By H Tohtz
    This saves time for contacting people that are being vetted prior to a personal basis. Good App, Grateful
  • Burner update

    By B1ggR3dd
    I don’t like that I’m not able to play/send or receive videos
  • 5 stars for sure!

    By Lebowski37
    App is fabulous. Could use some more number options, but beside that, flawless!
  • Awesome!!

    By Skunks hahahahd
    If you buy or sell online you need this app. Cheap and I’ve had it for around a month now and haven’t had any problems. Plus you don’t have to put your personal number out there anymore. Anytime you run across someone that you don’t want to be in contact with anymore just burn the number and create a new one. 5 stars from me. One of the top 5 apps on my phone!!!!!
  • Fabulous app

    By infinitiayandBEYOND
    Fabulous app works like a charm leaves no trace you don’t need an extra phone and there’s no trail think you bring your phone quit asking me to leave reviews now. Your AMAZING REALLY THOUGH . So many options for privacy and personalization I m haven’t not even explored
  • Got Unnecessary call

    By Nakul Rayamajhi
    As soon as I bought the number, I started getting calls frequently. Everyone said that I called them and they are returning my call. Just hate this bugs in the app.
  • Terrible!! Unreliable! Full of bugs! Avoid!

    By 157man
    I got as a temp number but unfortunately I gave the number out to too many people so now I’m transitioning to TALKATONE. Burner is too unreliable. More than a dozen times I’ve been told my text has not gone thru. Who knows how many I’ve missed!!! Pictures often don’t go thru either. Try something else besides this if you plan on using it for other than a couple of times. Seriously. Don’t bother with this app...
  • Video capabilities

    By Oghomwen-656
    We need video capabilities now!
  • Not to bad

    By Angielaloca
    So far so good . I use the burner app to deal with my clients and it hasn’t disappointed me yet . Messages go through fast and calls aswell
  • So far so good

    By Dez Moni
    Works just like having another phone, without having the hassle of carrying multiple devices
  • Beware!

    By lojahbs578
    About an hour after downloading this app, I had over 20 calls from other read on numbers. The app using your burner number to make robo calls bad then people call your burner number back thinking it was you. I’m trying to fingers out a way to disconnect my real phone from the app. I logged out and it doesn’t seem to work. Just want to delete my account and stop having all these random numbers calling me!!!
  • Perfect app

    By Samm710
    Does everything it needs to do perfectly. Lines are reasonable rates. Love it!
  • So so

    By Happydins
    When I talk there is a delay and recently there is an echo. I use this for business so it is becoming a problem. One of my coworkers has worked with support to correct the problems but so far it has not been better. If we cannot resolve the problem we will have to look for another app.
  • Phone calls drop too quickly and pressing 1 to answer is annoying

    By Pira trader
    I wish they would get rid of that press 1 to answer phone calls and also enhance somehow the phone calls to last longer when someone calls they seem to go to voicemail after 2-3 rings it’s over. It’s good floor outbound but I need the incoming to get better
  • Needs video

    By Sdlaser
    Overall the app works good except when you’re driving the signal does not transmit well for text, At least on my phone. There is no video option, that’s a must have these days.

    By andrew hollenberg
    This app took money for my monthly subscription and didn’t credit me to renew my line . I had to pay double last month because I needed the line to work and after seeing I was charged and not credited this month as well I will be deleting the app after using it for a year .
  • It’s Great!!!!
