How do you call anonymously?

Answered by James Kissner

To call anonymously, you can hide your caller ID. One way to do this is by using the Google Voice app on your smartphone. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

1. Open the Google Voice app: Locate the app on your smartphone and open it. The app icon usually looks like a white phone receiver on a green background.

2. Tap on the menu: In the top left corner of the app, you’ll see a small icon with three horizontal lines. Tap on it to open the menu.

3. Access the settings: From the menu, scroll down and tap on “Settings.” It is usually towards the bottom of the list.

4. Enable anonymous caller ID: Under the “Calls” section in the settings, you’ll find an option called “Anonymous caller ID.” Toggle the switch to turn it on. This will hide your caller ID for all outgoing calls made through the Google Voice app.

5. Make a call: Once you’ve enabled anonymous caller ID, you can start making calls. Simply enter the phone number you want to call, and it will be dialed anonymously.

Remember that enabling anonymous caller ID will hide your phone number from the person you’re calling. However, it’s important to note that some recipients may have call-blocking or screening features that could still identify your number as blocked or unknown.

If you want to show your phone number to people you call, you can simply turn off the “Anonymous caller ID” setting in the Google Voice app. This will allow your phone number to be displayed when you make calls through the app.

It’s worth mentioning that while hiding your caller ID can be useful in certain situations, it’s important to use this feature responsibly and respect others’ privacy. Always ensure you comply with legal and ethical guidelines when making anonymous calls.
