There are many reasons an individual or business may choose to keep their phone numbers private at certain times. Every time you share your phone number, you’re choosing to share personal information. This could result in unwanted calls or texts, such as spam or, in a worst-case scenario, identity theft. Unwanted calls are frustrating for individuals and costly for small businesses, which need the phone lines free to respond to real customers and prospects.
Remember the days of using a block code for individual calls? Not anymore!
A block code can be used to make calls from your number appear to others as an “unknown user” or “blocked caller”. In the UK, dialling *141 (In the US, dialling *69) as a prefix to a number will conceal your phone number from the recipient. This is a free service but can only be used for outgoing calls to businesses and individuals. Many countries including the UK & USA are putting in place ‘Anti Spam’ measures and these include blocking calls without a properly formatted phone number – don’t be surprised if your calls get blocked if you hide your number!
Customise the caller ID setting. A real pain!
Most smartphones, whether iPhone or Android, will have caller ID settings that you can adapt to meet individual needs. It’s easy to turn caller ID off and on as required, but not all carriers support this. If it’s important to protect your privacy on a particular call, make sure this feature is available before dialling. You will need to consider the inbound call capability of the number you use & remember to turn it off, especially if you use other calling apps that need to recognise your actual mobile number.
Simply add additional phone numbers to your phone - make and receive calls from any number and keep your personal mobile number completely private.
Get a virtual phone number. The solution for the modern day.
Instead, make calls and receive calls or messages from any number you like. You can add unlimited numbers in seconds.
A virtual phone number is not tied to a particular device; calls can be directed wherever you choose. The virtual number is not hidden but personal information, such as your location and personal phone number, remain private. Callers dial the virtual number and are diverted to any number of the service user’s (in this case, your business) choice, which could be a personal mobile phone. Equally, when you make outbound calls, these will appear to be coming from the virtual number, even if you make the call on your private cell.
