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 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 privacy maven, 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.

Great with a few occasional texting glitches

I used this app for online dating and it really is the best! I love how I can send pictures and also create a contact for each caller. Luckily I never had to used the “ghost” feature because there was 1 great person I ended up giving my real number to. And the other guys never texted back after I told them I wasn’t interested, so we’re good on that too. Keep in mind— you cannot use Bluetooth while using the app. I tried it once in my car and it failed. You have to answer directly from your cellphone, there’s isn’t an option to answer from a wireless source. Second thing— glitches. Twice in 2 months (90% success rate) I worked through mis-communications because a text I sent never made it to the guy and a text he sent me I never received. If the text is too long, it won’t go through. Better to send many small texts, not a paragraph. Even better to talk over the phone. Just be aware of this so you don’t jump to conclusions and think the other person is a jerk for not replying or answering in a way that has nothing to do with your last response.

Not working as of last version (5.4.11)

Similar to other reviews, it used to work - albeit with hiccups - before the last update (5.4.11). After that, messages/conversations show empty when opened. That is, a tagline is visible for text messages or voice mail notifications on the Home Screen / conversation list. When opening any conversation, however, no text messages or voice mails are visible, rendering the paid number useless as no messages in the history can be read nor voice mails listened to. Even more unacceptable is that contacting support via email - the only option they seem to allow - has been ignored and unanswered. Will see if a negative review is as incentivizing to garner a response as it has proven to be in the case of other poor reviews here.

Edit 1: 3 x 3 = ZERO: 3 weeks since this app’s support email was contacted and 3 days since review was posted. ZERO responses, app still not functional while being paid for.

Edit 2: Thank you for the developer standard response to contact you by email. I had contacted you by email only to be told in effect that this is a bug that cannot be resolved other than by a new version of the app. No time line for when such a release may be planned. Also declined to provide access to an earlier version of the app without this bug or provide a refund for the months the app has been not functional. Zero stars review stands for zero resolution over more than a month.

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!
