Different Methods on How To Hide Number On Glo

You can use different methods to hide your phone number on Glo. Currently, most phones have a feature that allows them to hide phone numbers regardless of the network.

However, for those whose phone doesn’t have this feature, there is another method you can use to hide your phone number on Glo.

Here are ways to hide your number on Glo

  • Through the phone settings 
  • Dialing USSD code

1. Through the Phone Settings

This method, in my opinion, is usually the best way to hide your phone number. This method is foolproof and works for all networks. You don’t need to have a network signal before activating it.

Here’s how to hide phone number through phone settings

– Android User

  • Go to the phone settings on the menu or pull down the notification bar to access the settings icon.
  • Click on “call settings.”
  • After clicking on “call settings,” you’ll click on “additional settings.”
  • Click on “caller ID.”

– For Samsung user

  • Click on the call icon
  • You’ll see three vertical dots at the top right corner. Click on it.
  • After clicking on the three-dot, it will list some options. Click on the “settings” option.
  • After clicking on “settings,” click on “supplementary services.”
  • At the top of the “supplementary services” option, you’ll see “show your caller ID.”
  • Click on “show your caller ID” and choose never.

– For iPhone user

  • Click on “settings.”

  • After clicking on the “phone” option, scroll down to the “Show My Caller ID.” You can toggle it off.

Finally, this method will hide your number from everyone if you do not deactivate it after using it. If you only want to hide a number from a single person, switching it off after using it is better.

2. By Dialing the USSD code

This is another method you can use to hide numbers on Glo. This method is less complicated and straightforward than the “phone settings” option. You have to dial a series of codes, and you’re done.  

Here’s how to hide numbers using the USSD code on Glo

  • Open the dialer app on your phone
  • If you want to hide your number from a single person, you must dial #31#phone number and click send.

Please note that if you want to hide your number from everyone, you must 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, you have to put the code in front of the person’s number.

Why You Should Hide Your Number?

With the advancement of telecommunication technology, cyberbullying and identity theft have increased. With just a phone number, scammers could get important pieces of information that can be used to dupe or, worse, incriminate someone.

Hiding your number should be a priority to avoid being scammed or in debt. Here are reasons why you should hide your phone number

1. To Protect Your Personal Information

The most important numbers for our identity and financial access are linked to our phone numbers. Important information like our Bank Verification Number (BVN) or National Identification Number (NIN) are all linked to our phone number.

These details can be accessed by your phone number or even worse. With the rise of these so-called “Loan apps,” someone can use your phone number as a guarantor, which might ruin your financial credit.

2. 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 call. 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.

3. 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.
