A temporary phone number, also known as a disposable or burner phone number, is designed for short-term use. You do not own it but can use it to receive SMS verification and text messages. Some providers will also let you send messages but this usually would cost extra. 

Temporary phone numbers are reliable and safe tools for situations like online shopping, socializing with strangers, registering an account, or just needing to receive a message and then never contact the sender again. 

You can get one or more temp phone numbers through various online services or mobile apps, for example, MoreMins.

How works temp phone number

The main goal of using a temporary phone number is to keep your privacy and anonymity. 
Many online services and websites ask for your mobile to register and want to send you an SMS verification when you sign up to them. Then some of these services keep sending SMS and calling you to promote their products. Using a temporary phone number to sign up solves this - you can get rid of it at any time and no spam will be able to reach you. 
Temporary phone numbers use Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) technology to provide virtual phone numbers. They are not tied to any physical landline or device - instead, the provider has a pool of available virtual numbers and assigns a number to the user when requested. SMS verification messages, voicemail, and/or calls that come to temporary phone numbers get forwarded to a VoIP app on the user's smartphone, to a web interface, or to their actual mobile number. 
After the temporary phone numbers' usage period expires, they go back into the pool and might be given to a different user in the future.

Features and benefits

Temporary phone numbers come with important benefits. They let you:

  1. Stay anonymous. Keep your primary mobile private and avoid sharing it with strangers and websites.
  2. Create and verify accounts without sharing your mobile. Use the burner one for account verification without sharing your actual phone number.
  3. Avoid unwanted calls and spam. This is the outcome of the previous feature. No spam calls and SMS verification messages would come to your actual mobile as long as you keep it private (and use a temporary one to register on websites and services instead).
  4. Use for temporary communication. Great for short-term communication, for example, online classifieds, dating apps, or temporary business contacts.
  5. Discard temporary phone numbers at any time. You can easily leave it behind after you are done using it, and then get a new one for the next purpose.
