Introduction:

These days everyone uses a mobile phone and it’s way too easy for people to find your phone number but it’s important to note that you can hide your phone number following the below methods.

Calling without changing your settings 

If you want to hide your mobile phone number but don’t want to change any settings you can easily do this by entering a simple number at the start of your phone call. To hide your number for a phone call just enter “141” before a number and your number will be hidden to whoever you’re calling! For example, if you wanted to call O2 whose number is 0344 809 0202 then you would have to enter

141 0344 809 0202.

You can also use the number “*67” for example 67 0344 809 0202.

This is probably the easiest way to hide your phone number from a person but what if you want to hide your phone number from everyone? Please note that by hiding your phone number some people will set up unknown number call blocking and other people generally don’t pick up as it’s associated with scam companies. However, if you still want to hide your phone number from everyone then follow the methods below.
