Next-generation phone numbers for privacy and identity in the mobile world

Next-generation phone numbers for privacy and identity in the mobile world

Burner is a smart privacy and identity layer for the smartphone era, giving users the power to take control of their communications and personal data. 

Enabling users to manage additional phone numbers for voice, SMS, and MMS communications, Burner is fast, safe and private. Users can get as many numbers as they want, use each as a private line on iPhone or Android, and keep numbers indefinitely or 'burn' them when they wish.

We have received worldwide attention and were named a top 50 app of the year by TIME magazine, in addition to coverage by WIRED, the New York Times, Entrepreneur, NPR, and many other media outlets. Customers in all walks of life use Burner to manage communications across their personal and professional circles, to maintain privacy in online transactions, for texting customers in P2P marketplaces, and in many other everyday situations.

We are currently the #1 grossing app in the iTunes Utilities category.

Burner is based in Los Angeles, California.
