TLDR: You can organize your life on the phone with a second private number from Hushed that’s a whole lot cheaper than getting a second costly phone service plan.
In 2004, more than 90 percent of American adults lived in a household with a landline. By last year, that number had tumbled to just under 37 percent. Increasingly, users are deciding that the smartphone is the one and only device they need, often with one single phone number as that primary point of contact.
If you’re conducting business by phone, you need that number to be available and accessible for promoting and growing that business. But a phone number is also an easy key for hackers and scammers to uncover your personal data or for spammers to unleash a steady barrage of sales calls and texts that you don’t need.
The answer: one number for the world, another one just for you and your nearest and dearest. With a Hushed Private Phone Line second number ($19.99, 86 percent off, from TNW Deals), you can achieve that separation of church and state so your business line can reach far and wide, while your private line stays protected and available only to those you really trust.
Hushed has quickly become one of the most reliable phone safeguards around, amassing a 4.6 out of 5 star rating from more than 5,600 Apple App Store reviewers.
With a Hushed second phone number, you can keep business and personal separate. You can choose from hundreds of possible area codes, so your new number can look just like any other in your area, but without committing to another expensive phone plan.
Send all their business calls, Craigslist offers, and more there, making it easy to maintain distance between work time and free time. Or use it to field personal calls like Tinder or Bumble contacts without exposing your business to the world. You can even manage multiple numbers, all from Hushed’s easy to use and navigate app.
Users can make calls or send texts with up to 1,000 call minutes and 6,000 SMS minutes for texting each year. So long as the Hushed number gets used at least once every six months, it’ll remain active and ready forever.
You can streamline all your communications now with a lifetime subscription to a Hushed Private Phone Line, a $150 value now on sale at almost 90 percent off that price, down to only $19.99.
