If you’ve been doing a lot of buying and selling or bartering during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s nice to be able to protect your privacy with a second phone line.
Hushed is an app for iPhone or Android which lets you pick a private Canadian or U.S. phone number for texting or calling.
With a second phone line, you can now run your business or have a different line to prevent your main cellphone number from spam calls.
You get to pick a number from 100s of area codes across Canada or the U.S., while the plan includes yearly usage of 6,000 SMS or 1,000 call minutes in credits—that automatically renews each year. You can add more minutes or SMS to your account at any time.
With your second Hushed line, you’ll be able to make and receive calls and SMS messages with other numbers within Canada and the U.S. (international texting not supported) over Wi-Fi and cellular connections.
The Hushed iOS app was recently updated with a new design, improved call quality and handling, while there’s now also better scrolling between your conversations and easy copy, delete and share functions.
Click here to jump on this lifetime Hushed second phone line deal while it’s still available for a one-time payment $25 USD.
Fine print: you’ll need to use your lifetime number at least once every 6 months to keep your subscription active; Hushed numbers may not work with third party verification services and cannot be used for emergency calls.
