Share This:

The iPhone is a powerful device that has changed the way we communicate and interact with the world. With its vast array of features, it can be difficult to keep track of all of your contacts, especially if you have a large list. Fortunately, the iPhone allows you to easily hide cerain contacts from view. This can be especially helpful if you don’t want certain people on your contact list to see who else is on it.

Hiding contacts on an iPhone is simple and straightforward. First, open the Phone app and select “Contacts” at the bottom of the screen. This will show you all of your contacts in alphabetical order. Next, select the contact that you wuld like to hide from view. Once selected, tap “Edit” at the top right corner of the screen. This will bring up a number of options for editing contact information. At this point, scroll down until you find “Hide this Contact” and toggle it on (it should turn green).

Once you have done this, your chosen contact will no longer be visible in your Contacts list or on any other part of your iPhone (such as suggested contacts when typing in messages). To make sure that it has been hidden successfully, go back to Contacts and type in the name of the contact that you just hid – they should no longer appear in search results or anywhere else on your phone.

It’s also important to note that hiding a contact does not delete them from your list – they are still stored securely within your device and can be unhidden at any time by simply following the same steps outlined above but ensuring that “Hide this Contact” is toggled off (turning white).

Hiding contacts on an iPhone is an easy process that takes only a few moments but can offer peace-of-mind for those loking for extra privacy with their contact lists.
