Sometimes you need to call co-workers, businesses, Craigslist sellers all sorts of people you might not want having access to your personal number and the ability to reach you at all hours of the day. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with wanting a little privacy, and with a Hushed Private Phone Line, you can get that privacy without getting a whole new iPhone. For a limited time, this app which functionally gives you a second phone number is on sale for $24.99 (Reg. $150). 

Get a second number for your iPhone

You probably don’t use one email account for everything, so why use one phone number? Emails get loaded with spam — sometimes, the wrong people get a hold of your personal number. With Hushed, you can keep your actual phone number hidden while still making calls and sending texts. This app gives you a second phone number (with an area code of your choice) that connects to your phone. You can make calls and send texts like usual, but only people you want to know your actual number will know it. 

When you make a call using a Hushed phone line, nobody should be the wiser that it’s a fake number. You can even set up your own voicemail specific to that number. Plus, you can use Wi-Fi or data to call and text without racking up a huge charge on your phone bill. 

Hushed has maintained a 4.6-star rating on the App Store, even with 5,600 reviews, and it’s not hard to see why. With your lifetime subscription, you get a combination of 6,000 SMS or 1,000 phone minutes (refillable) every year, and you can use it however you want. Need to call a client but don’t want them texting your personal number at 4 AM six months later? Use your fake. Setting up a date with someone you met on an app? Don’t be one of the 60% of people who have regretted giving their number out. Control who can get in touch with you and how they can do it by using Hushed.
