You need to make a phone call, but you don’t want to give out your phone number. “How do I hide my number on my iPhone!?” you wonder. In this article, I’ll show you how to hide your number on your iPhone so you can make anonymous phone calls!
How To Hide Your Number On iPhone When Making Calls
There are two ways to hide your number on your iPhone when you make calls. The first way is to go into the Settings app and tap Phone. Next, tap Show My Caller ID and turn off the switch next to Show My Caller ID. You’ll know the switch is off when it’s gray and positioned to the left.
It’s important to note that some wireless carriers don’t give you this option on the iPhone itself, so don’t be surprised if you don’t see Show My Caller ID in the Settings app of your iPhone. Some carriers, such as Verizon and Virgin Mobile, make you set this up online or by calling their support team.
You can also hide your number on your iPhone when making individual calls by dialing the shortcode *67 before dialing an actual phone number.

After adding the *67, it says the number you’re calling is a wrong number.
Where as the caller Id cannot turn off.
It’s faded marked on Iphone 6
How do I make my iPhone Not show up as private?
Try going to Settings -> Phone and make sure Show Caller ID is on. If you don’t see this option, contact your wireless carrier about your Caller ID.
Hello. *67 dialing worked. But how I do I turn it off now? Reverse it? Thanks. Please help 🙁
*67 only works for the immediate phone call then resets to Show Caller ID for the next call.
About the second SIM card that you talk about for AUD $25: how do I install it into my iPhone 7 Plus. Is the second SIM just a suggestion for iPhone 8 onward?
How can I block my iPhone number from an incoming call?
Does this work in the U.K.?
It does not have that feature in any app on my iPhone.
Thank you, David & David. You made it so easy and user-friendly. Great!
Thought it was #31# not *67* cause now I am confused you answered one question here with a different number than your post above shows
Sorry about the confusion! I’d suggest using the code *67 before dialing a number if you would like to make an anonymous phone call. Hope this helps!
*67 doesnt work on iPhones anymore. Nor do they have hide my number anymore.
Thanks for the heads up, Jeti! I’ll look into that.
Can you send anonymous texts from your iPhone 8
There are some apps that allow you to make anonymous texts
My iPhone 11 does not have the option in settings to block my number when call someone
Hi Christina, that makes sense. You can block other people’s numbers in Settings, but you can’t disable Caller ID for your number. You need to do that either through your carrier or using a code like *67 when you make calls.
#31# did not work on my iPhone X. Call my home number and it still show my cell number on the caller ID.
how do I make my number private?
Thank you for you, David L.
How do you send an Anonymous text from iPhone
How do I hide my number and I want no caller id
*67 didn’t work neither did #31#
Does this hide your number from 1-800 numbers ?
Show my caller id is not working.show my caller id is on but not off
You may not be able to turn off Show My Caller ID due to carrier restrictions. Contact your carrier or check their website to see if you can turn this setting off in your account. Alternatively, you can use #31# when dialing a number to hide your iPhone number for individual calls.
Just tried this on my Verizon iPhone…called my home phone and my cell number shows up on caller ID.
I remember from a long time ago dialing *67 before typing the rest of the number that you’re calling should make you appear as “blocked” or “private number”. Can’t recall if it still works but might be worth a shot.
That works! Thank you!
Glad we could help! ?
