Caller ID or Caller identification is a phone service that transmits a caller's number to the called party's telephone equipment while the call is being set up.

It is available in analog and digital telephone systems, including ( VoIP ). In a service known as the Calling Name Presentation (CNAM), the ID service may involve the transmission of a name.

Despite its explanation, ID display is one of the prime issues for many users. Let's look into how to block your caller ID on different mediums.


1. Launch the "Voice" app.

2. Tap Menu and then Settings in the top left corner.

3. Turn Anonymous Caller ID "On" in the Calls section.

Switch Anonymous Caller ID Off if you want people to see your phone number when you call them.

When you conceal your caller ID on one device, it is hidden on all other devices connected to your Voice account.1. Go to the Voice app.

2. Tap on Menu (you can find it in the top left corner)

3. Subsequently, click on Settings.

4. Search the subheading under settings as calls. You will see an option of Anonymous Caller ID. Toggle it on

In another scenario, if you're willing to display your digits so people can see them, you need to simply toggle off the Anonymous Caller ID.1. Go to on your desktop.

2. Tap "Settings" in the upper right corner.

3. Tap Calls on the left.

4. "Turn on Anonymous Caller ID."

Switch the Anonymous Caller ID Off if you want people to see your phone number when you call them.

The Golden Prefix

How can you hide your caller identification on a single device while this click blocks your caller Identification on integrated devices with your Voice account?

You can also hide your caller identification for specific individuals. You can also block your Caller Identification if you do not wish it to be displayed in front of particular individuals (temporarily).

  • Go to Voice Application
  • Tap on the Calls tab.
  • Enter the prefix for blocking your caller ID before calling the phone number.

This prefix is determined by the region or country from which your Voice number originates. For example, if your Voice number is from the United States, your code is *67 (before entering the number).

Reminder: Regardless of the number you're calling, you always use the same prefix.

After inserting the prefix, dial the phone number.

Your phone number will not be visible to the person you are calling.

Google Voice

Google Voice allows you to create a new phone number and use it to make free voice calls, emails, and audio messages. To get started, all you'll need is a Google account.

Unlike the other choices, Google Voice does not require a monthly fee. It uses your current phone minutes/data plans, but the number displayed is your Google Voice number.


TrueCaller is the most popular caller identification and spam filtering app trusted by the audience worldwide. Are you tired of people calling you to sell different schemes and offers? You can block them with the TrueCaller. When you receive a call from a number blocked by too many users, TrueCaller will display a red contact card to alert you about fraudsters.

Surprise: Take command of your landline as well.

Disable Caller Identification Block (*67) by dialing *82.

Disable Anonymous Call Rejection (*77) by dialing *87.

(I heard you say awesome, so TIA)
