One of our co-founders, Greg Cohn, sits down with USA TODAY's Jefferson Graham to discuss how Burner can help protect your online identity in this age of hacking and data breaches. Listen to the full conversation below.
Greg took part in an interesting round-table podcast Thursday. Among other things, they talked a bit about how net neutrality impacts SMS and MMS in terms of access by apps like Burner -- listen to the few minutes starting at 2:20 if you're interested.
A story broke this week about how people are hacking the Uber referral program to get thousands of dollars in free credits — some apparently by using Burner to create multiple accounts.
Funnily enough, just a few weeks ago a Burner team member proposed writing a post about exactly this “hack”, detailing step by step how to get Uber credits by using Burner, as a way of promoting the fact that we now support short codes, and to generate awareness generally.
We shot the idea down, but it led to an interesting discussion.
