Although only one is theoretically sufficient, there are times when we could use a second telephone number, a secondary line that we could use for other purposes, for example to have the work number separated with the personal number. But there is the problem that either we carry two phones on top, or we use a dual SIM card. Although there is a simpler option: an application that creates a second temporary phone number, how are you that we have compiled here:
Destined especially to business and business environment, the app Line2 It gives us the availability of a second number on our smartphone that we can use together with a series of functions such as making conference calls, deriving received calls or answering automatically. In itself it can be used as a disposable and temporary number, although this app is more oriented to be used as a second permanent number, ideal for those who want to use the same mobile phone but keep the work and home numbers differentiated.
The best thing is that it comes with a desktop app to make calls and send messages from a PC Windows or a Mac. We have seven days of testing, after which you will have to choose one of your payment plans between personal or business account.
Very privacy focused of the user, the CoverMe app offers a secure exchange of private messages, photos and sensitive videos and allows us to perform what it calls “taped military-grade phone calls ”, in addition to a function called “impenetrable vault” to protect your personal contacts, call logs, documents, notes, diaries, passwords, and private photos and videos from prying eyes.
With CoverMe you can make free secure calls, send messages that self-destruct, retrieve or delete messages sent remotely, securely share private photos and videos and hide text messages, contacts and call logs. Itself the app is free, although calls and messages range in different packages of micropayments ranging from € 2.99 to € 28.99 and even € 100 of the total coverage package.
Without doubt the most attractive, the grace of Sideline is that is free unlike the rest, and allows you to send unlimited text messages and number portability in addition to giving us a choice between calling using our operator or Wi-Fi calls, so it is able to offer both VoIP and normal calls, and consume data or minutes
Of course, the WiFi calls They require a monthly subscription of € 2.99 per month to use Sideline Pro, which eliminates the ads, allows you to make calls over Wi-Fi and prevents the number from expiring (the creators of the app claim the inactive numbers of the non-subscribers after 30 days) Wi-Fi calls also allow us to switch between networks in case we have a weaker signal.

Similar to Burner, the difference with the previous app is that Hushed does use VoIP (Voice over an Internet protocol, method that transforms analog audio signals into digital data so that they can be transmitted over the Network). Thus does not consume minutes of our rate, but data if we are not connected to the WiFi. Hushed has phone numbers for 40 countries and it can be used to obtain many more numbers.
The app is free the first three days, although only with American phone numbers. After that time the different plans offered by its creators, for 7 days, 30 days, 90 days and 365 days. When we acquire a Hushed number, each one comes with its own independent voicemail. You can get as many Hushed numbers as you want and destroy them when we finish using them.
