Hushed came from taking a complex problem and building a simple solution: although mobile phones and devices are commonplace it was still extremely difficult for a person to get a second (or third, or fourth) phone number. And as phone numbers become more important to communications the need keep you phone number private to protect from telemarketers, scams, and harassment has also increased.
"Everybody in the world should have a second phone number"
-Justin Shimoon, CEO Hushed
Hushed was designed from the ground-up to make it easy and affordable for anyone to communicate with private numbers. Download the Hushed app onto your iOS or Android device, sign up from a free number, and start talking and texting in less than a minute. Manage multiple numbers from a single dashboard, and affordable pay-as-you go plans mean no contracts or commitments.
