Anonymous Verification Impossible??

What is the point of this app if most websites don't allow you to use these numbers for verification of accounts? Isn't the entire purpose of this app for anonymity with the use of a phone? But so far I at least know that this app works not at all via either text or phone to verify a simple Facebook account. So what's the deal? Especially when I'm paying per month for this service.

Hey there,

Thanks for your question!

Burner is a privacy app. We're not an anonymity app just like we're not an encrypted app. Our function is to help keep your main cell phone number private from people or organizations who would like to link that information to you.

All Burners are set up to accept interactions with shortcodes as well as verification systems, so as long as the other party doesn't have any issues with our numbers, you should be good to go.

However, a lot of third parties automatically register us as VoIP numbers and then block VoIP numbers from being used either because they're trying to mitigate fraud, or because they have other strategic partnerships. If a third party verification system does have an issue, there's unfortunately no way for us to check into why they are failing.

If you receive any errors coming from the Burner app, write us in at and we'd be happy to dig in to them. Thanks!
