Can you please stop calling me?

Get a private number and protect yourself from spammers, recruiters, stalkers, and prying eyes
6 years ago I filled out an innocent form online that required a text message verification. I naively wrote down my personal cell number, completed the form, and hit submit.
The next day it was clear - I've made a huge mistake.
I received several calls and text messages from spammers, telemarketers, and sports betting "experts". My number was now on some list being sold for pennies to some scummy people
And there was little I could do to stop it.
The truth is anytime you share your personal number with someone else, whether it's for:
- Your business
- Craigslist ads
- Online forms and verifications
- Job applications (my developer friend is hounded by recruiters)
- Somebody you meet at a bar
You're opening yourself up to unnecessary risk.
The best way you could eliminate this risk is by getting a second, private phone number.
Hushed is an iOS and Android app that lets you do just that. Hushed provides you with a second phone number you can use to send/receive text messages, phone numbers, and even pictures ;-)
Even better, they're all contained in your app so you can lock it down, delete them, or turn your notifications off after business hours, so your customers aren't calling you at dinner time.
Normally access to this awesome tool would cost you $30/year and include 1100 SMS/500 minutes of talk time.
Instead, in this AppSumo exclusive, we got you lifetime access to Hushed (with 3,000 SMS or 500 minutes per year free) for only $25!
We're even throwing in the ability to change your phone number every month in case your phone number ever gets hacked, and you gotta burn it. (Tiger Woods, hurry up and buy, and get the hell out of here!)
No more dealing with messy contracts, SIM cards, services that don't allow photos, or carrying around a second phone.
With 2.5 million downloads, Hushed is the number one private phone service in the industry, and we got you the BEST offer they've EVER done.
Normally 1100 SMS or 500 minutes would cost you $30/year.
Instead, in this AppSumo exclusive, we got you LIFETIME access to Hushed (with 3,000 SMS or 500 minutes per year free) for only $25.
That's plenty to chat with customers, text your sales prospects, or send a photo to your business partner. If your business really takes off, you can always top off with more sms/minutes as needed.
If you've been looking for a second business line that functions like a regular phone - this is it.
P.S. This deal ends next week or until Hushed comes to their senses. Get it now before it's gone for good.
