How to Hide your Phone Number when Calling & Texting

If you wish to hide your phone number when calling & texting, just access Settings from the Home screen. To hide your number when making an outgoing call, access Settings > Phone > Show My Caller ID and toggle the switch to disable it. 

Hiding your caller ID when you make a call should provide you some sort of privacy as it will not show your number. That means you can lessen the probability of someone you don’t know to get your number without your permission. 

For that matter, you can always disable the caller ID option on your iPhone. But please be reminded that this will subject to availability, depending your network provider. Contact them should you need to verify if the feature is supported on their end. 

Further details are also provided below. Feel free to follow them and learn how to gain privacy and disable your caller ID on your device.
