Our service receives SMS from anywhere in the world to our temporary phone numbers in the UK. We aim to protect your privacy and it is free.

Our Britain disposable Phone Number is a real wireless phone number that is used for a temporary purpose. Their carrier is Hello or Giffgaff or Talk Home Mobile. It isn’t a VoIP number or a fake phone number or a virtual mobile number.

The burner phone numbers are disposable and all messages are discarded after 48 hours. Provided temp phone numbers are refreshed with new ones every 30 days. All our virtual/fake numbers can receive messages globally from anywhere in the world even if the sender is in a different country. Best of all, the service will always remain minimal and free. If you require free online service in a country not currently being listed, please check back later as we continuously add new locations and numbers.

Secondary phone numbers not only let you receive SMS verification codes but also help you secure your privacy. Your 10 min temp number is entirely private and only available to those you hand it out to.  

The Cloakmobile web app will give you the ability to get your virtual UK phone number.

How Virtual Phone Numbers Work 

You don’t need a SIM card or a physical address to take advantage of a virtual Britain phone number. All you need is a secure internet connection.

Virtual phone numbers use a technology known as Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), a fancy way of saying your voice is transmitted over the internet as digital audio. You have already seen VoIP used in apps like iMessage, Google Voice, or WhatsApp. 

A cloud communications provider like Cloakmobile can connect your digital broadband connection to traditional phone networks. VoIP was once only available through a physical network connection. However, technology has advanced and can now deliver clear voice communication through any reliable mobile data connection or WiFi.

UK Virtual Phone Numbers FAQ

The world of online communications is continuously changing, and virtual phone numbers are among the latest innovations.  

Are Virtual Phone Numbers Safe?

Keeping personal data secure is an essential feature for people using virtual numbers. Virtual phone numbers offer encrypted communications over and above what traditional phone systems can provide. 

Is it private to Use a Virtual Phone Number?

Many companies and services are beginning to demand a phone number to verify or activate accounts and to use their applications, luckily with our disposable and virtual service you can avoid providing personal information. We understand that your privacy is important and our service allows you to keep your contact information private while gaining access to online SMS-activated services from these various companies. We do not retain any message data longer than about a day and use a secure connection to serve our content.

Why get a second phone number?

You likely already have experienced some situations where a second phone number, even temporarily, would be so helpful. Think about all the times you’ve needed to register for an account but don’t want to hand out your primary number!

Why need a second line? Some do it because they think they need a number based in a certain country for apps like PayPal, WhatsApp, YouTube, Facebook, and more. But Cloakmobile has verification-friendly phone numbers based all over the world, ready to grab whenever you need them.

Can I use more than one number to receive SMS online?

Our free Receive SMS Online Web app currently has as many numbers as you need for temporary use, and you can use them instead of your regular phone number. Try Cloakmobile for separating your personal and work number! Stay anonymous when you need to, and your phone will thank you.

How Do You Tell if a Virtual Number is Real or A Virtual UK Phone Number?

Virtual numbers are real numbers that are forwarded to your device through VoIP. The only way to tell if they are virtual will be to use a reverse lookup tool, which is soon to be released on Cloakmobile.
