At Textverified and Phoneblur, we’re all about protecting your privacy and personal data. If keeping your private phone number secure is your number one priority, then you’ve come to the right place.
Buying and selling items online is super easy when you’re shipping out a package or receiving one in the mail. But what if your transaction is happening offline?
Services like Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace have been popular for years. Now that many people are working from home, it is easier than ever to find the time to arrange an in-person exchange. But new stories come out every week about buying and selling encounters gone wrong.
If you’re using a site like Craigslist, where users exchange emails and phone numbers to arrange a meeting, protect yourself first! Use one of our numbers to set-up an email account that you ONLY use for these types of transactions.
If you rent a multi-purpose line on Phoneblur, you can also give out your temporary number to sellers or prospective buyers. Then when you meet-up with a stranger for an exchange, you can reach them via call or text without ever giving out your real phone number.
Are you using a site like Facebook Marketplace instead? This would be a great time to create a separate profile that you ONLY use for buying and selling. You can then use an SMS verification on Textverified to verify that new Facebook account. Then all your Marketplace transactions can be conducted through one Facebook account that is not linked to your main account.
At Textverified and Phoneblur, we care about protecting your privacy — let us help you stay safe!
