Among the options that you can tweak on your phone app, the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus is giving you this possibility – to deliberately hide your caller ID. You might recall that you’ve got, at one point, a call from a person whose number you couldn’t read. When a caller decides to block the phone number, you’re not just unable to see it, but also unable to call that person back.
Want to try that? You obviously can and, while we are sincerely hoping that you aren’t planning on playing a prank to someone, here are the instructions. Read and put into practice right now!
How to enjoy the No Show Caller ID feature on iPhone 8:
- Unlock the device that you’re planning to use for calls with hidden number;
- Launch its Settings app;
- Select the Phone entry listed in there;
- Look for this specific option labeled as Show My Caller ID;
- When you find it, just tap on it to adjust its dedicated toggle and turn it Off.
After you follow the steps that we just listed above, you can be sure that your iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus’ phone number will no longer show up. Whenever you make a call, your name and/or your phone number will be replaced with this “Unknown” or “Blocked” message. That person will have no idea who’s calling!
