One of the more painful things about giving out your mobile phone number to people that you don't really know is that you are instantly vulnerable. If it’s a business that has your number, the chances are you'll be getting follow up calls offering 'the deal of a lifetime' for the next few weeks. While that's not so bad if you are at home receiving the call, you really don't want random phone calls while you are at work, out for dinner or - worst of all - when you are driving. DialMask is a very useful phone privacy app for iOS that offers an unlimited amount of substitute phone numbers so that you don't have to give out your real number to any Tom, Dick or Harriett you meet. Each number allows calls and texts to be delivered to your mobile but the callers will never have your real number.

DialMask offers phone numbers with local area codes for making and receiving calls and texts. You can create as many as you like with each number being a separate line that will ensure that your real number stays private. Incoming calls and texts are received like normal but will not show up on your mobile device logs. It is perfect to use when you need to give out your number but want to maintain a layer of privacy.

DialMask is most useful when replying to classified ads, contacting new people on your social networks or if you are using dating websites and aren't ready yet to hand over your private phone details. To prevent the obligatory 'follow up' call, the app works great on registration forms or when hiring a service provider like an electrician, a house mover, painter or a plumber etc. You can even use it to manage your own small business so you don't get unwanted business calls on your mobile after hours.

With DialMask, you choose your own private number and manage it within the app. There are no contracts involved and you simply pay as you go for voice and text allowances with 'topping up' of your funds a simple process when you need it. Costs start at US$2.00 per private number with the cost of a call starting at 4.5¢ per minute and text messaging at 2.5¢ per text. The app is very flexible and you can delete your number at any time or choose to delete it once your credit has expired. Once its been deleted the number has gone from your life forever. All call and text logs are contained within the app and will never appear on your regular mobile record log.

Identity protection has never been as important as it is these days. Mobile phone numbers are considered public information so, taking into account the amount of hacking and data breaches we hear about daily, it's probably wise to introduce an element of privacy into our mobile activity. Let's not forget that it's completely within the law for your phone company to sell usage data to telemarketers and social networks. DialMask is a cheap and efficient way to ensure your privacy by letting you create multiple phone numbers within a single mobile device. It adds a layer of privacy to keep your personal number safe and secure while giving you the level of contact that you require.
