Using Siri for Calls and Texts (iOS only)

Use Siri to send messages and calls from your Burner number!

Convenience counts. Siri can help you operate your Burner using voice commands like, "Hey Siri, send a message using Burner." If you have multiple Burners, keep in mind that Siri can only be enabled for one Burner number at a time. Siri is also only available for iOS users.
 

How to set up Siri

Make sure to enable Siri within the Burner app.
  1. First tap the three horizontal lines in the top left corner to open the Main Menu, then tap "Global Settings."

     
     
  2. Tap the "Enable" button to turn on the Siri features. This will bring up a list of all your active Burners.
    • Note: The first time you enable Siri for the Burner app, you'll see a notification that prompts you to give Siri access to Burner. Make sure you allow Siri access, or else you won't be able to use Siri with your Burner number!
  3. If you have more than one Burner, you'll see all of your available Burners. Select which Burner you wish to enable for Siri. Only one Burner can be enabled at a time.

 

If you decide not to give Siri access to Burner, then later change your mind, you'll just have to go to your device settings and make sure Siri is enabled on your device for Burner.
  1. Open your device settings on your phone (The Settings app).
  2. Tap on ”Siri & Search” and then scroll down to the apps section.
  3. Tap "Burner" and make sure Siri is toggled on for “Use with Siri." Once Siri is enabled on both the device and on the Burner app, Siri is ready to use.
 

How to make a call with Siri

Call with Siri from your Burner number by saying the following: 
  • “Call [contact name] using Burner”
    • Siri will try to make the call using your Burner number.

Then Siri will launch the Burner app and call the contact that you've specified from your Burner number. You'll still see the heads up that you're calling from your Burner number.



Note: If Siri finds more than one contact matching the name you say, Siri will ask you to pick which contact you'd like to call.
