How to Hide Your Phone Number on iPhone

Do you want to keep your phone number private when making calls from your iPhone? Luckily, there are a few simple steps you can follow to hide your phone number and protect your privacy.

In this article, we will guide you through the process of hiding your phone number on an iPhone.

Method 1: Hide Caller ID for All Calls

If you want to hide your phone number for all outgoing calls from your iPhone, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Settings app: Locate and tap on the “Settings” app icon on your home screen.
  2. Select “Phone”: Scroll down and tap on “Phone” from the list of options.
  3. Tap on “Show My Caller ID”: Under the “Calls” section, select “Show My Caller ID”.
  4. Toggle off: In the next screen, toggle off the switch next to “Show My Caller ID”. This will hide your phone number for all outgoing calls made from your iPhone.
  5. Note: Please keep in mind that some mobile carriers may not support this feature. If the option is grayed out or not available, contact your carrier for further assistance.

Method 2: Hide Caller ID for Individual Calls using Prefix Code

If you only want to hide your phone number for a specific call, you can use a prefix code before dialing the number. Here’s how:

  1. Dial prefix code: Before entering the phone number you wish to call, dial “*67” (without quotes) on your iPhone’s keypad.
  2. Enter the phone number: After entering the prefix code, enter the phone number you want to call. Your phone number will be hidden for this specific call only.

Note: Remember to include the area code and country code if necessary when dialing the phone number.

Method 3: Hide Caller ID for Individual Calls using Settings

Another way to hide your phone number for specific calls is by adjusting settings directly during a call. Here’s how:

  1. Make a call: Open the Phone app and make a call as you normally would.
  2. Tap on “Hide My Caller ID”: Once the call is connected, tap on “Hide My Caller ID” from the options that appear on your screen.
  3. Select “Hide Number”: A pop-up will appear with different options. Select “Hide Number” to hide your caller ID for this specific call.
  4. Note: The availability of this feature may vary depending on your carrier and location.

In Conclusion

By following these methods, you can easily hide your phone number on an iPhone. Whether you want to hide your caller ID for all calls or only for specific ones, these steps will help protect your privacy and keep your phone number private.

Remember, it’s essential to respect others’ privacy as well by not misusing this feature. Use it responsibly and considerately.

Enjoy secure communication with peace of mind!
