Inbound Caller ID

Inbound Caller ID

Burner protects your phone number by rerouting incoming calls through the Burner, without revealing your personal number.

As a result, 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.

Switching Inbound Caller ID

To switch the Inbound Caller ID, make sure to select the Burner you would like to change the inbound caller ID for, tap the gear icon at the top of the home screen, then look for the Inbound Caller ID: 

Then choose between these two options to show for inbound calls:

  1. Your Burner number
  2. The Caller's number
