Don’t want to dole out your phone number to everyone on the planet? Clue into a lifetime subscription for Hushed. It’s an app that lets you make anonymous calls and send texts via a second number.
The app utilizes the Wi-Fi network you’re connected to, or your data so that there’s no need to sign up for another phone contract. It comes in handy when you don’t want anyone to know your actual phone number—like when you’re looking for a car on Craigslist or contacting tonight’s date (that may or may not go well).
Since you can choose from hundreds of area codes to simulate where you’re from, the people you contact will be none the wiser about your identity or location. There’s no need to worry about running out of texts or minutes, because the lifetime subscription for North America 365 Plan includes 3,000 SMS texts or 500 minutes per year.
All of your communication is done within the app. BGR readers can get a lifetime subscription of Hushed for only $25. That’s 82% off the original price of $145.
