Quick Answer: How Do I Make My Phone Private?

Method 1 Using a Blocking Code Before Dialing

  • Open your Phone app. If you wish to hide your phone number from one person while calling them, you can enter a couple of numbers before the rest of the phone number to mask your Caller ID.
  • Type *67 .
  • Type the rest of the number you wish to dial.
  • Make your call.

How do I make my phone number private?

To block your number from being displayed temporarily for a specific call:

  1. Enter *67.
  2. Enter the number you wish to call (including area code).
  3. Tap Call. The words “Private,” “Anonymous,” or some other indicator will appear on the recipient’s phone instead of your mobile number.

Does * 67 still work?

Actually, it’s more like *67 (star 67) and it’s free. Dial that code before the phone number, and it will temporarily deactivate caller ID. On the receiving end, caller ID will usually display “private number” because it has been blocked. Once it’s done, your phone number will never appear, no matter who you call.

How can I call without showing my number?

Block Your Number on Individual Calls

Dial 67 before dialing the phone number to keep your number from showing on individual outgoing calls. If you’re using a landline, wait until you hear another dial tone after dialing 67 before you continue dialing the phone number.
