Hide Caller ID Directly Through Your Service Provider
Reaching out to your cell carrier and asking them to block your caller ID is the best thing you can do to protect your privacy.
Sometimes you may not find any options or ways to block your caller ID on Android or iPhone or Cell, but you can block/hide your caller ID through your cell carriers.
Most cell carriers have their own apps on Google Play Store or Apple App Store. And most of them have options to hide/block your number while making an outgoing call.
If you’re not finding any options concerning that, you have to call them directly and ask them to block your caller ID.
How to Block/Hide Caller ID on Android

Unlike Android, hiding your Caller ID on the iPhone is quite an easy task to do.
Let’s see how to hide/block caller ID on iPhone:-
- Open Settings.

If you have blocked your caller ID, you can temporarily unblock your caller ID by typing *82 before every call you make. This will undo the changes you have made.
Dial *67 Before a Number You Want to Call
You may Dial *67 before every phone call you make to hide your caller ID.
This method is very selective as you know who should see your caller ID or who should not.
You may copy the number you want to dial and paste it on the Dial area adding *67 before the number or you could do it manually.
But if you want to block/hide caller ID for every single call you make, consider applying other options as shown above.
Is it possible to Block/Hide at All?
We don’t think so.

Additionally, there are quality third party apps or software available that can reveal your caller ID in seconds.
But still, if you want to take forethoughts, following the steps above is the best option available.
