Are you tired of receiving unwanted calls? Do you want to keep your phone number private when making calls from your Android device?

In this tutorial, we will guide you on how to call private on Android. By following these steps, you can ensure that your phone number remains hidden from the person you are calling.

Method 1: Using a Code

If you want to call private on Android for a specific call, you can use a code before dialing the number. This method works for both mobile phones and landlines.

  1. Step 1: Open the Phone app on your Android device.
  2. Step 2: Enter the code *67 before dialing the desired phone number. For example, if the number is 1234567890, dial *671234567890.
  3. Step 3: Press the Call button to make the private call.

This code will block your caller ID for that specific call and the recipient will see “Private Number” or “Unknown Number” instead of your actual phone number.

Method 2: Configuring Settings

If you want all of your outgoing calls to be private by default, you can configure your Android device settings accordingly.

  • Step 2: Tap on the three-dot menu icon located at the top-right corner of the screen.
  • Step 3: Select “Settings” from the dropdown menu.
  • Step 4: Look for the option called “Additional settings” or “More settings” and tap on it.
  • Step 5: Choose “Caller ID” or “Show my Caller ID” from the list of options.
  • Step 6: Select the option that says “Hide number” or “Network default”.
  • By selecting the “Hide number” option, your phone number will remain hidden for all outgoing calls. If you choose the “Network default” option, your phone number privacy will depend on your network provider’s settings.


    Please note that calling private may not work in certain situations. Some individuals or organizations may have systems in place to block private calls, so your number might still be visible to them. Additionally, emergency services and toll-free numbers may also be able to see your phone number even if you call private.

    In conclusion,

    If you want to keep your phone number private when making calls from your Android device, you can use the *67 code for specific calls or configure the settings to hide your caller ID for all outgoing calls. However, it’s essential to remember that calling private may not always guarantee complete anonymity.

    We hope this tutorial has been helpful to you. Now you can enjoy a greater level of privacy while making calls from your Android device!
