  • After clicking on “settings”, click on “supplementary services”

How To Hide Number On 9mobile Using USSD

The method is for people who don’t know how to operate phones very well. The option listed above might be somewhat complicated for them. This USSD is very simple and can be manually done.

All you have to do is #31# in front of the number you want to call. For instance #31#0809080399708 and click send. The benefit of this method is that you can use it to hide your number for a single person and you can also use it to hide your number for every number in your contact.

If you want to hide your number from every person all you have to do is dial #31# and click send. It will bring out a message saying “outgoing caller ID has been disabled” and if you want to hide from a specific person, all you have to do is put the code in front of the person’s number.

Reasons Why You Should Hide Your Number

Here are some of the reasons why you should hide your phone number especially if the number you want to call is unknown.

1. To Protect Your Personal Information

Most of our personal information is attached to our phone numbers. Important information like our Bank Verification Number (BVN) or National Identification Number (NIN) are all linked to our phone number.

People can access these details just by having your phone number. This makes it why it is very important to hide your phone number when calling people you suspect are into shady business or are unknown.

2. To Make An Anonymous Call

Sometimes, we might want to call someone anonymously. Maybe a cheating partner or someone you suspected is not picking up your calls. Calling anonymously can come in handy when you are trying to do this.

3. When Using A Friend Or Work Number

If you’re using a friend’s or a work number to call, you do not want to reveal that number to whomever you are calling. Using a work number to call without hiding the caller ID might lead to unwanted calls during work hours. Also, using a friend’s phone without hiding the caller ID might lead to the friend getting unwanted calls.
