Do you want to hide your phone number so that your correspondent cannot see it? Follow our tutorial to hide your number, both for a one-off call and for all of your communications.
When you make a call, you don't always want the other person to know your phone number, either to avoid calling you back or screening your call and not picking up. In this case, it may be useful to hide your identity. So here is how to hide your phone number on Android.
Occasionally hide your phone number
To temporarily hide your phone number from the person you are calling (anonymous call), precede their phone number with # 31 #. For example, if you want to call 0102030405, type: # 31 # 0102030405.
In this way, your number will not be displayed on your correspondent's phone. Note that this is only valid for this call. If you call 0102030405 afterwards, or any number, your identity will appear normally.
Permanently hide your phone number
If you prefer, it is possible on Android to hide your phone number for all calls. You will therefore remain anonymous no matter what. Note, however, that some automatically block calls from unknown numbers, so you could be redirected to voicemail even before the first ring.
To access this option, you must open the Telephone application on your smartphone and go to its settings (the three dots at the top right of the screen). You will then have an option to hide your identity, but its position may change depending on the brand of the phone.
