If you regularly sell items on Craigslist or need to give out your number, getting a second phone line is handy as you can protect your privacy and prevent spam.
Need another phone number for your Airbnb, Craigslist listings or small business? Hushed lets you get your own local Canadian or U.S. number.
Their iOS and Android apps have been downloaded over 6 million times, with over 500,000 monthly active users right now, with 80% of them on iOS. Speaking of the latter, their iOS app recently received a major 4.0 update, which brings end-to-end encryption and revamped user interface, plus improvements to their core private number service.
The update also brings quick replies for text messages and CallKit integration, so answering a phone call uses the Phone app on iOS.
The following exclusive Hushed offer is only available for iPhoneinCanada.ca readers:
- $25 USD one-time payment for lifetime Hushed Canadian or USA number with code HUSHED25 (regularly $30 USD/year; using this for ten years alone would save you $275!)
