Temporary Phone Numbers

Temporary Phone Numbers

Temporary, disposable phone numbers are ideal for situations where you need to give out a number, but would prefer not to reveal your actual mobile number. Any time you share your number you run the risk of it ending up in the wrong hands, and later being plagued with robocalls or spam texts. Short term numbers protect your privacy in situations like dating, short-term projects, job searches or Craigslist transactions.

    How do disposable numbers work?

    Disposable numbers, also called burner numbers are not assigned to a physical mobile device. TextPort maintains a pool of numbers that can be leased for as short as 1 day, or extended indefinitely. You pick a number, then use it to send and receive text messages until you're done with it. Disposable numbers allow you to share a number and keep your actual number private.

    Online Dating

    Providing your personal number to someone prior to meeting them is risky, which makes disposable numbers ideal for online dating. If a date doesn't work out as planned, no problem. Simply let your number expire and you're assured that there's no unwanted communication.

    Online Exchanges

    When buying or selling on classified sites such as Craigslist, burner numbers are useful. You can communicate via text while keeping your actual mobile number private and protecting your identity.

    Short Term Projects

    Perhaps you have a business project or job that requires temporary contact with third parties. You may not want to share your number with people who you'll only have temporary contact with, so use a temporary texting number instead.

    Protect your Identity

    Burner numbers help maintain privacy and protect your identity. Send texts anonymously and keep your personal mobile number private.
