While social media continues to reduce the anonymity of users and brings them closer together. There is a new app that can be used to purchase additional numbers that can be used then discarded like a pre-paid number.
The Burner – Disposable Phone Numbers – Ad Hoc Labs, Inc app sells for $1.99 in the iTunes store (not available in Australia as time of writing) that includes 1 number that gives you 20 minutes of talk and 60 texts. Additional numbers with more talk and text can also be purchased.
Once your done using the number you can “burn” or discard the number. Perfect for shady people, drug dealers and to give out to weirdos at the bar.
