You can stop your phone number being shown to the person you’re calling by using the Calling Line Identity Restriction (CLIR) service.
How you select your CLI setting depends on your phone:
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.
