A second phone line has countless benefits. But before you take out another expensive contract or buy a burner phone, consider Hushed. This private phone line service can give your iPhone a second phone number without costly contracts. Right now, you can purchase a lifetime subscription for just $24.99, down from $150.

The benefits of using a second phone number

Once you start using a second phone number, you’ll wonder how you ever got by without one. With multiple uses, such as having a separate work line, online dating and even having a burner number to respond to Craigslist ads, Hushed has untold benefits, all of which you can enjoy on your current iPhone.

Simply download the Hushed app on your iPhone, and you’ll be able to create a second phone number for private calls, texts and picture messages. You’re given a generous allowance equivalent to either 1,000 minutes of calls or 6,000 texts a year, and you can manage all these communications in-app.

Hushed also provides a convincing level of convenience — your recipients won’t even realize you’re calling from a second number. You can customize your voicemail message, select an area code of your choice, set up call forwarding settings and even use WiFi to talk without service charges. You’ll have a private number for life to use however you like, making anonymous communication as easy as making a regular call or text. 

In fact, Hushed is so convenient that it has earned rave reviews online from its users. It boasts an extremely high 4.6 out of 5-star rating from over App Store reviews. Experts also recommend it, with the TechCrunch critics reviewing it as “A viable, more lightweight alternative to something like Google Voice.”
