“If you’re an iPhone user looking to maintain a bit of privacy from time to time, you can now turn to a new app called Burner thats lets you create temporary phone numbers that can be disposed of at will,” Katie Marsal reports for AppleInsider.
“The development team over at Ad Hoc Labs says the app is ideal for dating, Craigslist, short-term projects, side businesses, bands, FaceBook marketing posts and any other endeavor for which you’d like to give out a phone number on a non-permanent basis,” Marsal reports. “You can create one or several numbers at the same time, each of which acts as a separate line within your iPhone that can be used for voice and SMS messaging. Outgoing calls will show your temporary Burner number on the recipient’s caller ID while incoming calls will either redirect to your main mobile number or go straight to voicemail, at your preference.”
Marsal reports, “Each number comes equipped with a ‘Burn’ button so that it can be destroyed when you’re done with it.”
