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. No hassles, no contracts.

  • App won't let me send or receive texts

    By stevie b 1983
    It just stopped working out of the blue and I can't send or receive texts.... It keeps ringing telling me I have a new message but won't show the message or let me send one out. I know it's not my phone connection or internet connection because everything else works fine
  • Does what it does very well

    By Ddaa13112
    Little to no ads, quick and easy navigation and setup is simple. 10/10 do recommend.
  • App Crashes

    By B Mat
    Every time I click on the app and scroll through my messages the app crashes! Please fix this problem
  • Not worth it

    By 1Jitzo
    I only did the free trial on this app but didn’t like it. Now my car is getting charged & there is no way to unsubscribe.. preditory practices.
  • Dishonest ads

    By Little Pistachio
    The platform was working fine - then I was alerted that I was out of “credit” the pay scale is incredibly high. Not worth it.
  • Fantastic Job of INTRODUCING Bugs With the Latest Update

    By Gameman114
    Now after a call the entire app completely freezes and has to be force quit EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. As always, each new “update” just adds new bugs. I’m soooooooo sick of this app.
  • Cannot be used

    By mjberggr1504
    This app CANNOT be used for ANY two factor authentication - the entire reason I purchased. It would have been more entertaining to watch the money burn. Gave them a second try and the service still fails miserably.
  • Some less than facts.

    By DeannaR68
    I would have no issue with the app - but it keeps saying my line is expiring in 2 days when I pay monthly. That’s somewhat sketchy in attempt to get people to change plans etc.
  • Dreadful app and dreadful customer service

    By SakicNHL19
    The app asked me to confirm my number, but wouldn’t let me, and then after reading some hacks on the web, it told me to delete the app and reinstall. It wasn’t allowing me to log back in, so I reached out to the Burner support team. They said they were working on reactivating my account. A week passes by, no one contacts me, so I reach out again. They respond with this: “It has come to our attention that activity on your account has violated our Terms of Service and your account has been terminated.” Clearly, I was shocked, I used this app for my eBay business, so I’m not sure what illicit activity they were referring to, so I reached out to their legal team and this was their response: “ In connection with its efforts to protect the integrity of Burner and prevent abuse, Burner recently enhanced its processes for identifying accounts that are likely to be engaged in abusive behavior. Your account was identified for deactivation as part of this process. Accordingly, per Section 11 of the Burner Terms of Service, we have deactivated your account and blocked you from using the service. We understand that you may disagree with this action and be frustrated by it. However, this action is within Burner’s sole discretion and there is no appeal process.” Do yourself a major favor and choose a competitor. This app is expensive and their customer service, as you can deduce from above, is unsatisfactory. Update: They sent me a generic response when they saw I left this review. They have no intention of making me whole for the 8-months of my subscription that they have stolen from me. Also, another MASSIVE disappointment in this saga was Apple. They didn’t offer any help at all since it was past the 60-day mark of the subscription renewal, and even after thoroughly explaining what happened, they basically told me “...and the horse I rode in on.” Loyalty is apparently just a one way street in Cupertino. Lesson learned.
  • This app spams notifications with nonsense.

    By Hughshahahahahshaahgz
    “Did you forget to reply?” is one example. It is so infuriatingly moronic that a fellow human being decided to consciously choose to implement a function in this app that spammed the user with this nonsense. The developer in charge of that decision has mental cancer as well as cancer of the soul. These thieves stole my money.
