If you used to look with envy at all those people who were calling you with a hidden number, the time for payback has come. On your iPhone X or iPhone 10, there is this setting that blocks your number. You too can use it whenever you feel like doing so, provided you don’t forget to cancel it after a while.
If you don’t know what we are talking about, just go on and try it. At some point, you might need to make a call and keep your contact details private and it will be extremely useful to know how to do such thing.
To prevent the number of your iPhone X or iPhone 10 show up when making calls…
- Unlock the iPhoneX or iPhone 10;
- Navigate to the Settings app;
- Find the Phone menu and the Show My Caller ID feature listed in there;
- Change its toggle to Off;
- Leave the settings once you’ve made this adjustment.
That’s all it takes to block your phone from showing your phone number during the calls that you make. When we say “calls”, we literally mean all your calls. Do not be surprised if your mom stops answering you (because she doesn’t take calls that show up as Blocked or Unknown) or when your better half picks up the phone as if she wasn’t expecting you to call.
This is a feature that applies without exception. Try it, if you really need it, but do not forget to turn the Show My Caller ID back On when you’re done having fun. Because it is only fun up to one point. That’s all for now on the topic of “How to block my number on iPhone X or iPhone 10”.
