Thanks to their portrayal in movies and TV, burner phones get a bad rep. But they actually serve some legitimate purposes. For instance, you can use a separate phone number for potential dates, transactions with Craigslist buyers, or even on work calls or for subscription services. Conveniently, you don’t even need an entirely different phone to get the job done in this day and age. An app like Hushed is ideal for the situation.
Hushed is a simple, secure app that offers you access to your own second private phone number for any occasion. You get to choose the phone number, including the area code. And whenever you want to make calls or send texts anonymously, just open the Hushed app and go through that. It even lets you customize your voicemail and set up call forwarding settings.
You’ll get one lifetime number per account and the plan includes a combination of 6,000 SMS and 1,000 phone minutes per year. Each year, you’ll get a fresh batch of talk and text minutes. If you need more, you can add SMS credits or call minutes to your account at any time. But just be sure to use your Hushed number at least once every six months to keep it active.
There are hundreds of area codes to choose from across the U.S. and Canada, and each number can make or receive calls and texts with any other phone number from the U.S. or Canada. International calling and texting to other countries, on the other hand, is not supported with this plan.
For a limited time, you can get lifetime access to your own burner phone number through the Hushed app for only $24.99. It’s regularly $150, so that’s 83% in savings.
