iOS: Lots of apps provide disposable numbers for selling stuff, dating sites, or anywhere you need talk or text but want to protect your privacy too. Too is a new service that makes that second number a little less disposable, so you can use it for a small business, international calls, or even a freelance gig.
Previously mentionedBurner and its international cousinHushed both give you disposable numbers, but they expire pretty quickly and you have to pay in short increments to keep them going. Too makes things a little simpler. Pick a location, like a country or a US state, then an area code. You’ll see a price per month to essentially “rent” that number, and once you accept, it’s yours, for whatever you need to do.
If you have a contract gig for a few months, you can use that number as a hotline for your client for the duration of your contract, and when your contract is over you don’t have to worry about switching numbers just to be free of their texts or late-night calls. In fact, the guy behind the app used to work on a political campaign, and wanted a number to use for it, but didn’t want to just give out his cell phone number to everyone he met. You get the idea.
Too isn’t the first disposable number app out there, but it’s definitely one of the simplest, and it gets the job done without too much clutter or feature creep. Hit the link below to learn more.
