How To Hide Your Phone Number While Making A Call

Hide phone numbered

So many times you'd wish you knew how to hide your phone number when making a call either to trick your friends, sy in someone or use it to learn of a secret. You are not alone. I felt like that sometime ago and it led me into research and I came back with so many ways to hide your phone number when making a call.

The  research led to 4 methods of hiding your phone number when making a call and they include:

Use of "Caller ID" prefix: This is very simple. It can be used on any phone wether a browsing phone or not. As the name implies, you just have to add a little cde before you dail a certain number.

When making a call dail #31#Recipients Number. You're done. When the recipient receives the call, he or she will see something like "Private Number" or "Unknown ID".

However, some countries do not make use of this code and they are very few in number.
Below are these countries and the codes they use.

HonKong: #133#Recipients Number
New Zealand: *67
Ireland: #141#Recipients Number
United kingdom: #141#Recipients Number
Japan: #184#Recipients Number

This is just all you need to know about about the "Caller ID" prefix method.

Use of iPhone: An iPhone user can simply hide his or her phone number by following the simple procedures below.

  • Go to "Settings"
  • Click on "Phone"
  • Click "Show My Caller ID"
  • Not click on the slider to move it to "ON"

And that's just it. You've hidden your phone number.

Use of Android: This is just as simple as the use of and iPhone. And to accomplish thus task, you need an android phone
