Can I hide my own telephone number when I make calls?

You can stop your phone number being shown to the person you’re calling by using the Calling Line Identity Restriction (CLIR) service.

 You can choose whether this happens by changing your phone’s settings to either Allow my CLI to be presented or Restrict my CLI from being presented.

How you select your CLI setting depends on your phone:

iPhoneAndroid
  1. Go to settings
  1. Go to settings
  1. Choose ‘Phone
  1. Choose ‘Call
  1. Switch the ‘Show my caller ID’ feature on or off
  1. Select ‘Caller ID’ and pick ‘Network default’, ‘Hide Number’ or ‘Show Number

If you want to change your usual preference for an individual call, you can reconfigure your mobile phone settings or add a CLIR override code in front of the number you’re calling: 

  • 141 to stop your phone number from showing
  • 1470 to allow your phone number to show

Note: these codes can’t be used together with the ‘+’ symbol. You can use them in front of the international dialling access code (00) if you’re using Wi-Fi Calling or calling from the UK.
