Burner’s got a new look! Not only that, but the features were improved to make life easier for you (we got you!).

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.


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.


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.


Burner is a subscription-based app, offering you two simple ways to enjoy our anonymous phone numbers & all of the privacy, organizational, and spam-blocking features.

What’s New

Version 5.3.3

Hello Burner fam! It feels like we haven’t updated you on anything since last year. In all seriousness, we hope you had a fantastic start to the New Year. Here’s to hoping 2023’s *vibes* are just right for you.

We’re here to let you know we’ve made updates to VoiceOver support in the app in an effort to improve the accessibility of Burner for all. Now, you can enjoy improved audible descriptions that’ll hopefully make using Burner easier and better for those who need it.

Even if you don’t use VoiceOver support, we’ve made some other minor improvements and have fixed a few bugs. A big virtual hug to the first person who can figure out what we’ve updated!

It’s a great idea

So I’ve had Burner app for a yr now & I just love it. I don’t use it every day & there have been times when the app sat there for a week or more & I had no need for it. But when I did need that 2nd line, Burner came through like a champ.
I got sick & tired of answering the phone & listening to some automatic system tell me that my car warranty was expired — weird since I don’t own a vehicle. So I just stopped answering calls from numbers that I did not recognize, I figured if it was important they would leave a voicemail. And that’s where Burner app comes in - I would use my 2nd line to call that number back; and after I got all the info I needed from the ppl that are spoofing me I would take them to court & win $500 per spoof call 😃.
In the words of Wolfman Jack - If I’m lying, I’m dying!
I couldn’t call them back on my phone number because they wouldn’t answer or if they did answer they certainly would not give me the info I asked for - but using Burner app & my 2nd line I was able to beat them (leagally) at their own game! 🙋‍♀️😊👏

It’s just ok

I found this app after not being able to get a Google Voice number. It’s ok. I have two pretty big issues though since I use this for my business. 1. There’s no text notifications. Sometimes client will text me for appointments and if I don’t constantly check the app, I might miss it. (I know because it’s happens twice now). I’ve had to set up an hourly alarm so that I remember to check for text messages. 2. When a call come through it does display as my business name which I BUT when you answer the call a message plays first “press 1 to continue, press 2 to disconnect.” Since I’m new to this, twice now I have assumed these to be spam calls and hung up. I haven’t been able to find any info on where it says this is supposed to happen. The worst part is I can’t even stop using it because I have the phone number on all of my business information. Another smaller issue I have is that besides a contact list and a message box, the app doesn’t really offer anything else. No help section or “contact us”, no FAQs. You just pay them and then you’re pretty much on your own. So…if I can find a way better way to communicate with my customers I’ll probably get rid of this even though it means discarding my business shirts and having to order new cards since both currently have this phone number on them.

I had a client pay nearly $500 USD to have my phone number. I chose this Burner app because it offered picture messages that I could send and receive.
Once I paid for the best plan, I quickly realize none of my photos were going through. I couldn’t send them to myself or my client. It looked like they went through but we never received them. I messaged support and they told me it should work, and to uninstall the app and reinstall... so I did that, and when I logged back in it actually made me pay AGAIN, but tbh the money wasn’t the issue. I can afford a few bucks, but I NEEDED this to work as someone paid me hundreds for it.
So reinstalling it didn’t work. I messaged support again and they said they could offer me another line for free, which I didn’t want bc my client already had “my number,” so it would be weird to change it so soon, but I said as long as it worked I’d figure it out. Setup that new line, tested it out, same exact issue. I’m using an iPhone 12 Pro Max. Taking the photos within the Burner app itself. Their latest email said the specs of my photos are correct and that it should work... (but it doesn’t). And then they said the only thing they can do is offer a refund, but since it was purchase in the App Store, they CANT process a refund... LOL they contradicted themselves in the same sentence. Ridiculous products. If you need picture messages. DONT USE THIS APP!
