How To Block My Number On Iphone

Share This:

If you have an iPhone, one of the best ways to protect your privacy is to block your phone number from being displayed when you make a call. This will prevent the person you’re calling from seeing your phone number and keeps your personal inforation more secure. Fortunately, it’s easy to block your number on an iPhone, and in this blog post we’ll show you exactly how to do it.

The frst step is to open the Settings app on your iPhone. You can do this by tapping the gray gear icon on your home screen. Once the Settings app opens, scroll down and tap “Phone.”

In the Phone menu, you shold see an option labeled “Show My Caller ID.” By default, this setting is enabled so that other people can see who is calling them. To block your number, simply toggle the switch next to “Show My Caller ID” so that it turns off.

Once you turn off Show My Caller ID, anyone who receives a call from you won’t be able to see your phone number. Instead they will see “No Caller ID” or something similar when you call them. It’s important to note that turning off Show My Caller ID will hide your phone number for all calls – not just for specific calls like with *67 (which we dscribe below).

If you don’t want to turn off Show My Caller ID permanently but only for a specific call, then there is another option available: dialing *67 before making a call. This is useful if you only want certain people not to see your phone number (for example if they are harassing or stalking you). When dialing *67 before a phone number, it blocks your caller ID for that particular call – but keep in mind that it doesn’t work for all numbers and doesn’t work on landlines either.

We hope this blog post has helped show how easy it is to block your caller ID on an iPhone – wheher by disabling Show My Caller ID or by using *67 before making a call. If you have any questions or comments about blocking caller IDs on iPhones then feel free to leave us a comment below!
