Aside from shady or illegal things, there are a lot of situations in life where you need to contact someone but you don’t want them to have your permanent phone number. Whether you want to sell something online or you want to go out on a date without leaving too much of a trail, a burner will make things a lot easier. Besides protecting your identity, disposable numbers can also be used as a redirect, making the calls cheaper for the person calling.
However, if you’re not a resident of the US, obtaining a “burner” is close to impossible. Luckily, smartphones are one of the most common things of the planet, and the way we use disposable phones is drastically changing as technology evolves.
