Will a Burner number work with Telegram for texting?

Does Burner text messaging have it's own messaging application or does it use iMessage on iPhone? Can Burner be secured with a passcode to restrict access?

Hi there,

Thanks for reaching out!

Your Burner is going to be a VoIP number, so you would have to get with the 3rd party service you're attempting to use and see if they'll accept a Burner number. Burners are real numbers, we don't generate them on the fly or spoof, so it usually works with everything unless the 3rd party blocks VoIP numbers.

We do have our own messaging system, you just SMS inside our app. We can not use iMessage, as it's an Apple proprietary product, but if you felt like handling text messages through your regular messaging app, we have a way to forward to your main cell and you can handle them there, still looking like it's coming from your Burner number.

Pin locks are a feature we have, you just tap the pin lock icon on the top right corner of the app and set it. You can unlock it the same way, as well as set a timer for your pin lock. Let us know if you need anything else!
