DialMask effectively allows you to keep your phone number private. The app offers you phone numbers along with local area codes to make and receive calls and text messages. You can create more than one number at a time as per your requirement. Each number is a separate phone line that will mask your real number, keeping it safe and private. All incoming calls and messages will be received as before but will not be recorded in your mobile logs.

This way, this iOS app helps you maintain a layer of privacy while giving out your number for any purpose. You can use it for anything ranging from dating sites to registration forms to social networks to classified ads to hiring service providers and more. It also comes in handy for people with businesses who do not wish to make business calls from their personal numbers.

The working of the app is quite simple. You pick a private number for yourself and then manage it via the app. You can make calls and send messages like a normal number. As and when you need balance, you go on and add it on the go. There is no time limit or contract that comes with the app. You can use it for as long as you like and delete it when you think it right. The good part is that all call and text logs are maintained only on the app and not on your mobile device. When you delete a number from the app, you lose all call logs and information related to it.

Working with the app is simple. You get started with downloading the app for free from the App Store. It requires any iOS device with iOS 8.0 or later versions. You then register with your mobile number on the app. This will win you a credit of $2.50 and 10 minutes worth of talk time- enough to get you started. The app usage costs are reasonable too. It costs $2.00 for each private number that you acquire. Additionally, calls are priced at $.5 cents per minute and text messages at 2.5 cents per text. It works on a prepaid basis where you fund your account before using it at present. No credit is allowed.

All said and done, DialMask is an ideal app for anyone who is not comfortable with openly sharing their number with anyone. It helps you mask your real phone number with a private number and does so well. It is easy to use and does what it promises. This is one app you must try out!
