iPhone, Tutorials

Are you looking to block your number on iPhone? Whether you want to maintain your privacy or simply don’t want the recipient to know who’s calling, blocking your number is a handy feature. In this tutorial, we will walk you through the steps to block your number on iPhone.

Step 1: Open Settings

To begin, unlock your iPhone and locate the Settings app. It’s usually represented by a gear icon and can be found on your home screen or in a folder.

Step 2: Scroll Down and Tap on ‘Phone’

In the Settings menu, scroll down until you find the option labeled Phone. Tap on it to proceed.

Step 3: Tap on ‘Show My Caller ID’

In the Phone settings, locate and tap on Show My Caller ID. This option controls whether your phone number is displayed when making outgoing calls.

Step 4: Toggle Off ‘Show My Caller ID’

Tapping on Show My Caller ID will reveal a toggle switch. By default, it should be turned on.

To block your number and prevent it from being shown to others, simply toggle it off. The switch should change from green to gray indicating that your caller ID will now be hidden.


If you are unable to toggle off this feature, it may be because of restrictions set by your carrier. In such cases, you may need to contact your service provider for further assistance.

Additional Tips:

  • If you wish to unblock your number in the future, simply follow these steps again and toggle the switch on.
  • Keep in mind that blocking your number will only affect outgoing calls. Your caller ID will still be visible when sending text messages or using other messaging apps.
  • If you want to block your number for a specific call, you can prefix the recipient’s number with *67 before dialing. This will hide your caller ID for that particular call only.

That’s it! You have successfully learned how to block your number on iPhone.

Now you can make calls while keeping your identity private. Remember to use this feature responsibly and respect the privacy of others.
