Who we are:


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

Enabling users to obtain and manage additional phone numbers for voice, SMS, and MMS communications, Burner is fast, safe and private. Burner lets users get as many numbers as they want, use each as a private line on an iPhone or Android phone, and keep numbers indefinitely or 'burn' numbers they no longer need.

Burner is made by Ad Hoc Labs, Inc., a fast-growing startup based in Los Angeles, California. Our team is passionate about the idea that real-time communications should be more socially aware and privacy oriented, and we believe Burner is just the beginning.
