There are many situations when you don’t want to share your number with others when you call them. So here you can find it how you can hide your number on iPhone.
If you wish to hide your number, then there may be several reasons behind it. The reason doesn’t necessarily lie in the sinister category (yet we can’t deny that it is prominent reasons.) There are some genuine scenarios where sharing your phone number is not safe (such as when you call the unknown number.) That is why iPhone has generated a technique to hide your phone number.
This feature in the iPhone allows you to hide the phone number whenever you use the “Stealth Phone Call.” Here you can know how to Activate the Stealth Phone call.
Making a Stealth Call
When you want to make a Stealth call, you can use two methods that can make that happen:
- First Method:
If you have to follow this method to hide your number:
- Open the “Settings” app.
- Now, click on “iPhone.”
- Click on the “Show My Caller ID.”
- Now tap on the Toggle button. This button will turn it into grey.
Now when you call someone instead of your number on the screen, you will see “Unknown Number.”
There are many wireless service provider doesn’t give this option. So you can’t see the option of “My Caller ID” under the “iPhone” section in the Settings. Then you have to option to contact the support time of wireless service provider.
- Second Method:
If you don’t have the option of “Show My Caller ID,” then you can use this method:
- Open app “Phone.”
- Open the Keypad in the app.
- Type #31# before the number. (the number would look like #31#45630944)
- Click on the green button to make the call.
After doing this, firstly check that it is working or not by calling to the known number (such as friends and family), before you make any risky call. If it is not working then turn off the “Show My Caller ID” then turn them on again. If you are using #31#, later try it again.
- Buy an Extra Number:
This method does not stop showing your number, but it makes sure that you have the chance that you can separate both personal and professional number. By this way, you can eliminate the fare reasons that raise the necessity of hiding the number. This new number can be a bit expensive, but if you want to make sure that people receive the call without any doubt and fear.
Form this feature, people from business background have the opportunity to secure their number from unwanted distribution. Yet this feature does reduce the level of confidence and trust in the people on the receiving end and that is the problem that this feature has to face in the future.
Turn on the Stealth mode and secure your number from distribution.
