What is Burner - Free Phone Number?

Burner is a communication app that gives users a second phone number for calling, texting, and picture messaging.


This app is available in the App Store and the Google Play Store and is rated for users of all ages. This app features in-app purchases.


Burner app developers warn that others can view personal information from someone’s phone number and intend for Burner to fix that problem by giving people a second number to use when calling or texting people they aren’t quite comfortable with yet.


The service works by intercepting calls on the Burner app and rerouting them to the user’s phone, so users can access both numbers from one device. The app also gives user the ability to burn numbers when they’re done using them.


In-app purchases range in price from $1.99 to $139.99 for credits and line subscription packs.


Some apps that are similar to Burner include Text Free and LINE: Free Calls & Messages. The Burner app has an average user rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars.

Is Burner - Free Phone Number safe for my kids?

The Burner app is safe for kids in terms of content but its features make it not suitable for kids.The basis of Burner is anonymous texting and calling, making it an extremely easy way for kids to get caught up in bullying or inappropriate phone behavior.

Unless there is a clear reason why a child needs an anonymous phone number, this seems like an app that will cause nothing but trouble for kids and teens.

Apps like Burner take anonymous social activity one step further where a person on the receiving end doesn’t even know who they are talking to. It’s too easy for kids to use this app to send inappropriate or harassing texts to another kid, in which they can pretend to be anyone and then screenshot and share the interaction.

It may be safe for mature kids in some case with parental supervision, this app is targeted to adults. Parents should keep that in mind, as it could be a danger to their young children.
