That said, Burner differs from your regular phone number in a couple great ways. It plugs into a host of other services, including Evernote, Slack, and Dropbox. Through these connections, you can archive texts, receive Burner alerts within other apps, and more. The app also takes security measures to protect you, allowing you to lock your account with a PIN. And if you decide to ditch a burner number before its preset time period is up, you can reconfigure or erase it at any time.
