What does temporary (or disposable) phone number mean
First of all, the two words are basically the same thing. Second of all, it means that the number is not permanent and stays just for a couple of days, or even hours. The plus of temporary phone numbers is that you do not need to own a SIM card, nor phone device, you just need an internet connection and access to this website.
Is it really for free or?
Yes, our website is powered by Advertisements, and thus we can keep it for free. We do not charge you anything, there aren't any hidden fees, paywalls or registrations needed. You just have to choose one of our numbers
How often are the phone numbers changed?
We aim to refresh the phone numbers as much as possible, there, however, isn't any 'timeframe' set and thus is completely random. But we're usually refreshing the phone number almost every midnight.
Could I use it for two factor authentication?
You definitely could, however, we strongly recommend you not to. Not only our numbers are fully public and anyone could gain access to your account, our numbers are also being refreshed on regular basis. That means you could loose access to your account from day to day or even second to second.
Am I required to register to your website?
No, however, registered users have some adventages that un-registered users do not, we get into this in our blog post about why you should register, but for example, you get access to premium numbers that only registered users can use
Are those phone numbers fake?
No, they're not. All of our numbers are fully functional real phone numbers that we're paying for.
Why are the numbers from randomly generated?
We do have an access to all of the real 'from' numbers and senders, however, we randomly generate replacements for them each time you refresh a website to provide some privacy and protection. For example, if you'd send SMS to one of our numbers by mistake, your real phone number won't get leaked to the public
How does the message saving work, why does it mark multiple messages as saved?
Message are saved based off of a special hash we're assigning to each message. The hash is calculated by the content of the messages, meaning 'One' will always be equal to 'One', however, 'one' won't equal to 'One'. This is the reason why you may see that when you press the star to save the message, it marks multiple messages as saved. It's because they're contextually the same message
