Ad Hoc Labs are the makers of Burner, one of the top-grossing independent apps in the world. Our mission is to build best-in-class software that empowers our customers to better control their privacy, communications, and identity–and to do it as a self-sustaining company whose culture and practices we can be proud of.
For over a decade, Burner has led the virtual phone number category, delivering control and privacy to millions of customers, without the hassles of wireless carriers and contracts. Burner was named a top 50 app by TIME and has been covered extensively in the press, including the New York Times, who said “a thin layer of privacy between yourself and the rest of the world, when needed, is hard to put a price on.” We couldn’t agree more.
