Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why do you need an email?

There has been some reported abuse and we no longer allow public access without signing up for an account. We deeply apologize for the inconvenience but hope the service provided warrants this small amount of information.

Q: How is this free?

The service is supported by advertisements, if you don't see any please be kind and disable your adblocker.

Q: Do you send SMS (messages)?

We only provide in-bound services to all of our numbers. We do not send any messages. Our numbers are temporary, therefore it is possible another person has ownership of the same number at a different time.

Q: How long are SMS (messages) kept?

Messages are kept for approximately 7 days after first being received.

Q: How often are the phone numbers rotated?

All numbers are discarded and new ones are purchased at the end of each month.

Q: Do you have an API? Can I scrape the site?

The service is meant for end users and scraping the website is prohibited.

Q: How many messages can I send to the numbers?

Although there is no limit to how often you may use the service, we kindly ask to refrain from automated spamming of numbers.

Q: I need a number from a previous month, can you provide it?

Sorry, no. All numbers are transient and will be replaced on a regular basis. We are unable to gain access to old numbers.

Q: What does the number in parenthesis beside the phone number mean?

This value is the total count of messages that this number has processed so far. Not all of these messages are displayed as some may be too old and have been automatically removed.

Q: This is great!
