Burner is a feature that allows instantly calling or chatting with non-Cyph-users. Anyone you chat with can remain anonymous, Cyph's end-to-end encrypted Castle messaging is still used, and the contents of a session are lost forever as soon as you close it.

Once you are done with your Burner session, you may click the "+" symbol and then the "x" symbol, or simply just close the tab/window that the Burner session is contained in, to end the communication

NOTE: By closing the Burner session, you will lose your session and all information contained within will be gone forever; the person you shared the conversation with will retain the information until they close the tab/window on their device
