Ottawa-based developers of Hushed for iOS offer iPhone (and Android) users the ability to create a second phone number right on their device, allowing you to send and receive phone calls, text messages and more, without the need for a secondary device.
Having a secondary number is convenient when you don’t want to give our your actual number for privacy reasons, whether for personal or business.
For example, when you’re dealing with Craigslist or want a separate line for your Airbnb, using Hushed can make it easy to communicate by masking your real number. Tired of telemarketing spam? Use this burner number instead when filling out online forms or elsewhere.
Want to prank your friends? The included Canadian or U.S. number can make it happen. Don’t want to give out your real number for dating? Use your Hushed number instead.
Hushed is the leader in offering secondary numbers, with over 6 million iOS and Android app downloads and currently 500,000 monthly active users (about 80% of them are iOS). They are currently the top grossing app in the Utility category in the App Store.
This exclusive offer for iPhoneinCanada.ca readers offers the following:
