Vumber Launches Virtual Phone Number Service on

By Tim Gray, TMCnet Web Editor


Vumber, a two-way disposable calling service, announced a new partnership with real-time, video-based community Paltalk (News - Alert). The New York-based service provides 4 million members privacy-ensured virtual phone numbers.

“Online dating and chat groups continue to be a fast growing trend, yet some participants are reluctant to share their personal phone numbers online,” Cliff Wener, co-founder of Vumber (News - Alert), said. “With Vumber, Paltalk members will have more privacy, control and freedom when providing phone numbers to one another.”

In fact, according to a study by Pew (News - Alert) Internet and American Life Project, 11 percent of all American Internet-using adults – about 16 million people – say they have gone to an online dating website or other site where they can meet people online. Sixty-six percent of those adults express reservation posting their personal information online.

“By now offering users the ability to share their personal phone numbers privately with Vumber, either in a one-on-one chat or in one of our secure rooms, we continue our commitment to always providing a safe and secure environment for Paltalkers to connect on and offline,”  Joel Smernoff, president and COO of Paltalk, said.

Vumber is a virtual, disposable phone number that enables subscribers to choose an additional phone number that can be linked to any existing phone line. Subscribers can choose an area code in North America and Vumber will then assign a seven digit phone number in the area code of choice. Calls can be made to and from a Vumber at any time, making it a complete identity. Calls made to your Vumber will ring on any phone you select. Customers can also change their Vumber at any time.
