This article aims to help you conceal your phone number on Android-based smartphones. When you want to make calls but don’t want to reveal your number, it may be useful to hide your number on your smartphone.
Something like this may be beneficial. For instance, you can call a business on your Android smartphone without giving them your phone number if you want to call them to ask a question but don’t want to give them your number.
How do you hide your number on Android?
On an Android phone, you can choose between hiding your number permanently so that no outgoing calls reveal it and hiding it on a per-call basis. We have information on how to proceed for each option below, and the settings you must use for each choice differ slightly.
How do you hide your number permanently?
Click the Phone icon on your Android smartphone, then choose Settings from the drop-down menu in the top right corner of the screen. Caller ID may be found on your phone under Calls > Additional Settings. Pick Hide Number by clicking this. More details regarding this feature are available on Google’s website.
After changing this setting, no incoming calls from your smartphone will have your cell number displayed. This is more of a long-term solution if you don’t want to give out your phone number when you make calls. This option is useful if you use your personal phone for work but don’t want people to know.
How do I hide my number for one-off calls?
Prefixing your number with *67 is the simplest way to hide your phone number when contacting someone in the USA. Only the current call will benefit from this; to disguise your number once again, make another call and enter *67.
For instance, dial *67 1-855-836-1987 to call Google support in the United States without giving up your personal information. That’s all there is to it; this feature is easy to use and works with all Android smartphones.
If you are calling from the UK and don’t want your number to be revealed on individual calls, prefix the number with 141. This works for calls from iPhones, Android phones, and UK landlines.
