Can You Reclaim Your Mobile Digital Privacy?

Are you concerned that you are giving out your mobile phone number to strangers? Don’t you wish that your personal number would remain private, for use only with your friends and family?

Most people communicate on mobile devices in at least two contexts, one for connecting with family and friends, and the other with third parties in some business context. For example, you may need to phone or message your gardener, cleaners, handyman, insurance agent, broker, sales person, or delivery service. Or you may want to respond privately to a classified ad or personal offer.

You want to do this without exposing your personal number to strangers. You wish that you could make these calls from a separate number, but you don’t want to carry two phones for this purpose.What if you could use a new separate number on the same mobile phone? That’s what you can do with iPlum phone number for your mobile phone or a tablet. You get a dedicated phone number that helps isolate messaging and calling from your personal imprint.

How does iPlum help protect your personal digital privacy? With iPlum number, you can mask the personal number when making calls or texting people on an ad hoc basis.
