Do you value your privacy and want to make a private call on your iPhone? In this tutorial, we will show you how to do just that. Whether you need to discuss sensitive information or simply want to keep your conversations private, making a private call on your iPhone is easy and convenient.

Step 1: Enable Caller ID Blocking

To ensure your privacy during a phone call, it is important to enable Caller ID blocking. This will prevent your phone number from being displayed on the recipient’s caller ID.

  • Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
  • Scroll down and tap on Phone.
  • Select Show My Caller ID.
  • Toggle off the switch next to Show My Caller ID.

Step 2: Make a Private Call

Once you have enabled Caller ID blocking, you can now make a private call without revealing your phone number. Follow these simple steps:

Option 1: Dial *67 before the Phone Number

This option allows you to make an individual private call by dialing *67 before entering the desired phone number.

  • Dial *67.
  • Enter the phone number you want to call.
  • Tap the Call button.

Option 2: Use the Hide Number Feature in Contacts

This option allows you to permanently hide your caller ID for specific contacts in your iPhone’s Contacts app.

  • Open the Contacts app.
  • Select the contact you want to call.
  • Tap Edit in the top right corner.
  • Scroll down and tap on Hide Number.
  • Tap Done to save the changes.

Option 3: Use a Third-Party App

If you frequently make private calls and want more advanced features, you can consider using a third-party app specifically designed for private calling. These apps offer additional privacy options, such as disposable phone numbers and encrypted calls.


Making a private call on your iPhone is essential for maintaining your privacy. By enabling Caller ID blocking and following the steps outlined in this tutorial, you can ensure that your phone number remains hidden during your conversations. Whether you choose to use the built-in *67 feature or opt for a third-party app, take control of your privacy and enjoy confidential phone calls on your iPhone!
