Inbound Caller ID

Inbound Caller ID

Burner protects your phone number by rerouting incoming calls through the Burner, without revealing your personal number. By default, when someone calls your Burner, it looks like your Burner number is calling you.

So if your Burner line is (555) 666-7777 and your buddy calls that number, it will look like you're receiving a call from your own Burner, (555) 666-7777. Many people save this number into their phone and name it something like, "My Burner" or "Work number" or "Tinder."

Our app gives you the option to alter this behavior and show the incoming caller's number instead of your Burner number when you receive a call. You can set this up on a line-by-line basis in the app.

iOS Users:

To change the Caller ID settings, select the 'Gear' icon in the lower right corner of the app. Then, select 'Number Settings' and select the Burner number you want to update the Caller ID settings for. Then, select either 'Burner Number' to see your Burner number when the call comes through, or select 'Caller's Number' so you see the caller's number when the call comes through.

Android Users:

  1. Tap the All Numbers option for the Burner number you want to update the Caller ID settings for.

  2. Tap the Settings icon at the bottom right.

  3. Tap Inbound Caller ID.

  4. Choose Between your Burner Number or Caller Number.
