You know how it goes: You fill in a survey. You give your name and phone number, sometimes even your zip code. Then the phone starts ringing. You’re a marketing lead for the company whose survey you now wish you’d never filled out.
Then others start calling you … it’s like they’ve been given your number or bought it off a list. They have. Unsolicited calls keep interrupting your day.
You wish there were a way to engage with companies and one-off contacts without losing control of your peace and privacy. There is. Use the working phone numbers in MySudo.
The mind boggles at the potential benefits, right? Let’s have a look at 6 of them:
1. The numbers are real, unique, working phone numbers in area codes or geographies you select. Numbers are currently available in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. You can use the Sudo phone number for voice calling or SMS messaging with anyone, even if they don’t have MySudo. Each phone number has customizable voicemail, ringtones, and a contacts too.
2. Get multiple numbers quickly and use them for short or long term activities. Users can provision different phone numbers for each of their Sudo profiles. These can be used across various activities like selling on classifieds, work, to online dating. Whether the use case is short term like selling an item once or permanently for work, MySudo has you covered.
3. You can delete a number you no longer want. Sudo phone numbers are dedicated phone lines you use how you like, separate from your personal number. When you do want calls and messages to a particular number (e.g. realtors), you maintain the number and always know the context of those incoming contacts. When you don’t want calls and messages (e.g. those pesky telemarketers), you either turn off notifications for that phone number or simply delete the number and start fresh. No inconvenience to you.
4. The MySudo plans are a good value. When you download the app, you receive a FREE 14-day trial. Once you’ve seen how MySudo can work for you, you can sign up to a plan, which start from only 0.99 USD a month. Even on the SudoFree plan, you get unlimited encrypted Sudo-to-Sudo messages and unlimited encrypted Sudo-to-Sudo minutes. If you join the top plan, called SudoMax, you get nine different phone numbers, unlimited encrypted Sudo-to-Sudo messages, voice, and video communications plus unlimited Sudo-to-nonSudo SMS messages and call minutes. See all plans.
5. The numbers fool the spammers. Spammers think they have your personally identifiable details—they don’t; they have the details of one of your Sudo profiles. And that makes all the difference to your privacy and security online (and off). Use the Sudo phone number any time you’re concerned you might receive spam and nuisance calls (e.g. when filling out those surveys, signing up for services, or entering your phone number at the store checkout for points).
6. The numbers give you a second chance at digital privacy. Given the extent of the global data privacy crisis, your personal phone number, email address, credit card number are probably already all over the internet (e.g. with all your account logins) and compromised beyond repair. It’s an interesting thought that we explore here.
