How to Hide caller ID on iPhone on a per-call basis using Dial Pad

Several countries allow you to hide your caller ID using the dial pad with a shortcode, which for most United States carriers is *67. For other US carriers, like in several European countries and other countries like Australia, South Africa, and Canada, dialing the code #31# hides the caller ID on the iPhone. Similarly, for South Korea, it is *23#.

Here’s how to use it to hide the phone number when making a call using a dial pad

  1. Open the Phone app and tap Keypad.
  2. Enter *67 or the appropriate shortcode, and enter your required number.

Note: If you have saved the contact number, then copy the number and paste it into the dial pad with the shortcode.
