There are several reasons why you would like to make Phone calls without revealing your identity. For instance –
- Say you want to have one time chat with a guy you met on the dark web
- You are going on a blind date with a partner you met Tinder or OkCupid
- You like to have a separate phone for home and business calls, but also don’t want to carry 2 phones
Well, you can always get a burner phone to make anonymous calls. It’s a prepaid device which you use for some task and then gid rid of it once it’s done. But burner phones are difficult to get in many countries and could also be considered illegal in other countries. But if you don’t want to go through the trouble of all that, simply use software to get a disposable number instead of buying a new device.
