Burner allows you to share your phone number without having to compromise your privacy. If you need a phone number for just a day, a week, a month or longer, Burner lets you create one on your iPhone or Android in less than 30 seconds. Users can keep this number as long as they like and disregard it (or burn it) when they're ready.

This level of control is useful for those who might need to post their telephone number on Twitter or Facebook, use it for selling online or for use as a business line.

When users have finished with the Burner number it goes out of service. Burner wipes it from the phone and stops texts or calls to the number.
