Unfaithful lovers can use new app to get two phone numbers on one phone

The revolutionary app, called Swytch, allows users to have up to five additional mobile numbers to use on their existing smartphone


Love cheats no longer need two mobiles to orchestrate their double lives because a new app can give them two numbers for the same phone.

The revolutionary app, called Swytch, allows users to have up to five additional mobile numbers to use on their existing smartphone.

This means they can call or text somebody they shouldn't after simply selecting which number they wish to use - essentially juggling their relationships.

Smartphone owners just need to download the free app, available on iPhone and Android, and activate a new number to use. 
Users are given £0.50 credit and a phone call to a landlines costs £0.05 a minute, calls to mobiles is £0.06 a minute and text messages cost £0.06 each.

Chris Michael, CEO and Co-Founder of the groundbreaking app, said when developing the app it was inevitable it 'could also attract the unfaithful ones'.

He said: "If having access to more than one number makes it easier for people to have affairs, then it happened a long time ago when Pay As You Go SIM cards became available.

"Swytch makes it possible for people to have multiple numbers on their existing mobile phone, and while this may assist people who have already decided to have affairs, I cannot believe that would be a factor in their decision to start one.

"Facebook made it easier to meet people and dating app Tinder literally made it easier to hook up with people.

"There will always be innovative services bringing great value to the users they were built for, and they will always end up being hijacked by a marginal number of users with ulterior motives."

He added: "The bottom line is, if someone wants to hide something, they will find a way.

"While building it for people who use online dating services we realised it could also attract the unfaithful ones, but they will definitely not be the users getting the greatest value out of Swytch.

"We focus on helping people who were displaying their main number online and getting spam calls or being harassed, because they did not have a proper alternative.

"When PAYG was first launched those that worked in mobile retail used to joke that the only people buying it were drug dealers, criminals and adulterers.

"Swytch has attracted thousands of users in the first few months with fantastic engagement as our registered users begin to use the service more and more."
