It’s finally here! The long-awaited iPhone version of the Hushed app is now available for both the iOS and Android platform. Hushed allows users to send and receive both calls and SMS  through a disposable, temporary phone number to anywhere in the world.  Each Hushed number has unlimited voicemail, and is offered in two different phone number plans: pay as you go or monthly plans. Plans start from as low at $1.99 for 7 days up to $9.99 for 90 days, top-up plans start at $5.00.

Users select a phone number from a wide range of area codes from their desired country (over 40+ to choose from today) and can top-up their account by adding credits at anytime to extend the minutes or duration of any plan. Hushed has it’s own dialer so all incoming and outgoing calls are directly within the client and every number can be  disposed anytime during usage. Other features include muting notifications and messages for complete privacy.

Hushed is designed to help users secure their privacy, maintain anonymity, and limit information with a private phone number. This is ideal for customers who join online communities and social networking sites; online buyers and merchants via Craigslist, Ebay Classifieds, or social media; online dating site members; and travellers who need a temporary number while on a trip.  Our international capabilities also bode well for customers who wish to own a number from within the 40+ countries we currently support.

Co-founder and CEO Justin Shimoon says, “It’s one of the best ways to put yourself out there without having to compromise your privacy and security. In a world of social networking sites and social apps, you’re in control of the people who get in touch with you on your mobile phone”.

The Hushed app for Android was released last month and has over  25,000 app downloads.  The mobile app is now available for download through Google Play and the Apple Store for Free.
