How To Give Out A Fake Number and Still Get Their Texts

Have you ever signed up for one of those fake online testing things where you can check your 'fake number' text messages on an app? 

It's a pain but has always been an alternative to giving out your REAL number on Tinder (because who knows what he or she is actually like!)

However, a new phone company called Phox has saved the day for everyone, coming up with the best solution ever! 

Phox hides your real number behind a public number for sending and receiving texts. 

Basically, this means people can text you on your fake number and you'll receive it on your real phone. 

Then, when you reply, it'll still look like it's that fake number. If anyone tries to call you, it'll just ring like it's busy. 


Even if you're not on Tinder, this program can be excellent for those weird Craigslist transactions you've had, or times you've worried about that car service guy. 

Phox gives you a seven-day free trial and after that it's $4.95 for 100 texts. 

At the end of the day, this program sounds like a great way to help women in particular feel safer and more in control of their privacy. 

Worth a shot!
