Want to place fake phone calls from a different number to protect your identity?
Maybe you don’t want people to know where you’re calling from or don’t want to give out your personal number.
There are a few ways you can go about protecting your identity with fake calls. But based on our research and surveys, people agree: SpoofCard is the best one.
Method #1: In the U.S.A? Use *67 to place your fake call.
Phone providers in North America offer a *67 feature for landlines and (many) cell phones that prevent your information from being shown on the caller ID of the person you’re calling.
This works on a per-call basis, and unless you set it up with your carrier to do this automatically, you’ll need to dial *67 before every fake call you want to make.
- To use this feature, most providers simply require you dial *67, followed by the 10-digit number (the area code plus the number) you are calling.
- Some providers, such as Xfinity, will provide a confirmation beep or tone after you dial *67, so wait for the regular dial tone to return before dialing the 10-digit number you wish to call.
It’s important to note, there are apps that are able to detect the number you are calling from, even when you call from a blocked number.
Apps like TrapCall pride themselves on always knowing who’s calling and thus, even if you use *67 before making a call, if the person you’re calling has TrapCall, they’ll still see your number. This is another reason people needing to protect their number are using services like SpoofCard, as TrapCall cannot detect spoofing technology.
Method #2: Not In the U.S.A? Use #31#.
Dial #31# and the number of the person you are trying to reach. You will place your fake call straight away.
This feature works the same as *67, but will work for different cell phones in North America. This code also works on mobile devices in many other countries, including New Zealand, Australia, and GSM (Global System for Mobile) phones in Europe.
Method #3: Use SpoofCard and place a spoofed fake call.
