Get a disposable or a temporary phone Number

Since a long time I am reading messages on my facebook page asking me about a technology that could be like MI ( mission impossible ) it was not much old when yesterday I received a message asking, if there is any way to get a temporary or disposable number or a second phone number without purchasing a sim.

Many movies have shown how criminals use burner phones to protect themselves from being monitored by NSA or Other Security agencies.

it has been a common information for all now that every conversation is monitored for some listed keywords.

Even if you aren't a criminal everyone cares for their privacy and when it comes for phone it really is a great issue.

So whats the solution, lets find out few bellow:

While you may think of getting a new phone or a new sim card, but for the easy solution you can just get an app on your existing phone.

Why do you need a Burner Phone?

  • Online dating is most popular, but it is associated with certain risks, specially for women. Having a temporary Number Provides extra layer of privacy.
  • If you are planing to buy or cell something on sites like Quikr, olx or else you are planing to place an ad online. having a disposable number protects you from dealing with unwanted calls once your required task is completed.
  • If you are a traveler or are moving to some other country you have a great option to pick up a local Number before hand.
  • If your job requires you to be on call or you’re running your own business, you’ll want a dedicated number that you know to answer professionally and can ignore when you’re off the clock, without having to carry two phones.
  • If someone is monitoring your calls and texts (like an abusive parent or partner), you can reach out for help using a number they don’t have access to.
What so ever your need be today there's a simply app based solution for your problems and same is available for this one.

Here are list of some best apps available to provide you with secondary number.

     Burner provides you with a real phone number (not VoIP) with a local area code that you can use for calls, text messages and voicemail. The app gives you control over who can call you, and when you’re done with a number, you can just “burn” it at the press of a button.

    Provides you to control your mobiles identity and allows you to manage who can reach you without compromising your identity or privacy. 
    Features Like Touch ID lock and custom Line colors will keep you organised and well controlled.
