This post will teach you how to hide your number on Android in case you ever need to make a call using your phone without giving away your number.

This post is intended to assist you in hiding your Phone number on Android devices. Hiding your number on your smartphone might be beneficial when you want to make calls without disclosing your number.

This is something that might be helpful. For instance, if you want to call a company to inquire about anything but do not want to give them your number, you can do it on your Android smartphone without disclosing your phone number to the business.

How do you hide your number on Android?

On an Android phone, you have a choice between permanently hiding your number so that no outgoing calls reveal it and individually doing so so that it remains hidden for each call. The settings you must use differ slightly for each choice, and we have information on how to proceed for each method below.

How do you hide your number permanently?

On your Android smartphone, click the Phone icon, then select Settings from the drop-down menu in the upper right corner of the screen. Go to Calls > Additional Settings on your phone, where you will find Caller ID. Click this and choose Hide Number. On Google’s website, you may find out more information about this function.

Any outgoing calls you place from your smartphone after changing this setting won’t have your cell number shown on the other end. If you don’t want to share your phone number when you make calls, this is more of a long-term fix. If you use your personal phone for business and don’t want others to know, this option is helpful.

How do I hide my number for one-off calls?

The simplest technique to mask your phone number while calling someone in the USA is to prefix your number with *67. This will only work for the current call; to mask your number once more, place another call and dial *67.

For instance, the number to call Google support in the USA is 1-855-836-1987; to call this number without disclosing the number, dial *67 1-855-836-1987. That’s it; this function is simple to use and compatible with all Android devices.

Put 141 before the number you are calling if you live in the UK and wish to prevent your number from being disclosed on individual calls. This functions for UK landline, iPhone, and Android calls.
