Back in the 20th century, the whole point of having a phone number was so that people who needed to reach you could find you. But once phone numbers turned into easy ways for retailers, scammers and pesterers of virtually every stripe and variety to get in your ear and try to take something from you, your phone number likely became a “need to know” item. Now, in a perfect world, if someone doesn’t need to know your number, then they don’t get to know your number.
If you’d like to cut down on how many times your phone rings each day as well as control who’s on the other end, the very 2020 option is to protect yourself with a service like a Hushed Private Phone Line. Right now, a lifetime subscription to Hushed is available at almost 90 percent off its regular price, just $19.99 from TNW Deals.
Hushed is a secure second phone line with its own number that you can choose, including any area code you like. If you take business calls, solicit business online or just want to talk to certain people on your own terms, this number can help better separate your calls, leaving your primary line available for only your most important family and friends.
For those on the dating scene who’d rather not have random Tinder and Bumble connects blowing up your phone, Hushed is just the place to send those contacts. You can text, or even talk on the phone, all while maintaining your online anonymity and without having to pay for another expensive phone contract.
Unlike some cut-rate services, Hushed doesn’t skimp on your communication options, offering an annual allotment of 1,000 call minutes and 6,000 SMS minutes for texting. Next year, those features all automatically renew with a fresh batch of talk and text minutes for another 12 months. Just make sure to use your Hushed line at least once every six months — and you’ve got a secondary communication link for life.
A lifetime of Hushed Private Phone Line service is usually $150, but with the current deal, you get it for a whole lot less, just $19.99 while this offer lasts. If you are looking for more, get 7,000 SMS and 1,250 minutes for $29.99, 9,000 SMS and 1,750 minutes for $39.99, and 12,500 SMS and 2,500 minutes for $59.99.
