How to Block your Number Leave a comment

To block your number from appearing on the caller ID of the person you’re calling, you can use a feature called “caller ID blocking”. Here’s how to do it on some common types of phones:

For iPhone:

  1. Open the Settings app.
  2. Scroll down and select “Phone.”
  3. Select “Show My Caller ID.”
  4. Toggle the switch to the off position.

For Android:

  1. Open the Phone app.
  2. Tap the three-dot icon in the top-right corner and select “Settings.”
  3. Select “Calls.”
  4. Select “Additional settings.”
  5. Select “Caller ID.”
  6. Choose “Hide number” or “Hide my number” depending on your device.

For landline phones:

  1. Dial *67 before making a call.
  2. This will block your caller ID from appearing on the other person’s phone.

It’s important to note that while caller ID blocking can prevent your number from showing up on the receiver’s phone, it may not work in all situations. Some people have settings that automatically reject calls from unknown or blocked numbers, and emergency services may still be able to see your number in case of an emergency.
