• Protect your privacy and avoid spam by using a temporary mobile number for dating websites and online marketplaces
London, UK: Swytch, the UK-based start-up providing multiple mobile numbers on an existing mobile phone, today announces the launch of weekly tariffs, designed to give users easy access to a temporary mobile number for a short period of time.
The new Swytch weekly tariff is priced at £1.49 and provides a quick and hassle-free way of a getting a mobile number on a temporary basis, with the option to renew. It is now easy to keep your primary point of contact private and give out a temporary mobile number to any person, website or service. All you need to do is download the app.
We meet new people every day – especially when dating – and regularly give out our mobile number to complete strangers. Often when you register on a new website, buy a product online, or create a profile for an online service, you also need to provide a mobile phone number.
Results from a recent Ofcom survey show that people are reluctant to give out personal information – 80% of respondents only give out the minimum amount of contact information required. 25% will never give out their mobile number, and of those that do, almost half worry about it.
25% of respondents have given out inaccurate or false details, which can be counter-intuitive if you want to receive an important notification but not subsequent marketing communications.
The new Swytch weekly tariff means people can protect their primary point of contact – their mobile number – and avoid companies and individuals exploiting it.
There is no need to change your phone, SIM or network operator if you need an additional or temporary phone number, as the Swytch app lets users have multiple mobile numbers on their existing mobile phone, all of which can be used for both incoming and outgoing calls.
Chris Michael, CEO and Co-Founder of Swytch, comments, “Swytch is all about giving users complete power and control over their communications, both incoming and outgoing, and adding a new number on Swytch is easy and quick. The new weekly tariff option gives people a choice over what information they provide, so they can protect their privacy and ensure their primary number is secure.”
“Feedback from the Swytch community has been the driving force behind the evolution of the service from the very beginning. We understand how users may only need a temporary number for a short period of time. By introducing weekly tariffs Swytch is providing users with temporary numbers at the lowest possible cost.”
The Swytch app is free on iOS and Android and within 30 seconds users have access to additional mobile numbers.
