How to Hide Your Number on Verizon

by Maya Walker

Phones that are equipped with caller ID display a caller's name and phone number. As a Verizon customer, you can hide your number so that it does not appear on a phone equipped with caller ID. When you hide your number, "Anonymous" or "Blocked Call" is displayed on the caller ID. A special code can be used to hide your number on a per-call basis. There is no charge for using the code.

Step 1

Enter "*67" on your Verizon phone's handset.

Step 2

Enter the 10-digit mobile number of the call recipient.

Press the "Send" key and wait for the party to answer.

Tips

  • Permanently block your number by logging into your Verizon online account and clicking the "My Plan" tab. Click "Add/Change Features" and check the Caller ID Blocking box. Click "Next" to review the change and save your settings.
  • Contact Verizon's customer service if you are a landline subscriber and need to block your number permanently. There may be a charge for adding caller ID blocking to your phone plan.
