Contacting Customer Care

Contacting the Glo call center is the only way to hide your phone number for good on Glo.

The call center can completely block your phone number from caller ID, so when you make calls, no one will be able to see your number.

You can reach the Glo call center by calling 121 from a Glo phone or +2348050020121 from any other phone.

You should tell the customer service rep that you want to fully hide your phone number, and they will walk you through the process.

It is important to know that the customer service person will not answer your call for a while. It's important to remember that this method takes time. Still, the call is free.

If you prefer a more direct approach, you can contact Glo's customer care service to request assistance in hiding your number. Simply reach out to Glo's customer support team via phone, email, or live chat to inquire about the process of concealing your caller ID.

Using USSD Codes

Do you want an easy and quick way to hide your Glo Line number when you call someone? With Glo, an easy USSD code will let you hide your caller ID. How to do it:

By dialing #31 and the number they want to call, Glo users can hide their number. To call 08012345678, for instance, you would type #31#08012345678. This will hide your caller ID, so the person you're calling can't see your number.

Try it out. It's important to test the code to make sure your number is really hidden after you've called it. To do this, call a family member or friend and ask them to look at your phone. For sure, you have hidden your number if they can't see it.
You can make this your phone's normal setting if you want to hide your number when you call someone. To do this, open your phone's settings and choose “Phone.”

Pick “Show my Caller ID” and turn it off from there. Once you do this, your number will be hidden on all calls until you either dial the code again or turn it on in your phone's settings.

Always check with your service provider to make sure that your secret number is real. To do this, call their customer service number and ask them to make sure your number is blocked.

This is very important if you are using your Glo line in a place other than the one where you bought it.

Glo also provides USSD codes that allow you to manage various services, including hiding your number. To hide your number using USSD:

  • To hide your number, dial the Glo-provided USSD code.
  • Follow the on-screen instructions to activate the service.

How to unhide your Number on Glo 

By calling the same code again, you can give out your number for a certain call. To call someone, just type in #31 and the number you want to call.

For instance, to call 08012345678 and give out your number, you would type in #31#08012345678. This will show your number again for that call only.

Important note about call hiding: It can be helpful to hide your Glo phone number sometimes, but you should think about what the legal consequences are before you do it.

There may be laws and rules in your country or state that make it illegal or hard to use anonymous talks. In Nigeria, it is against the law to call someone anonymously or use a fake name.

The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), which declares that “it is a criminal offense to make anonymous calls or make calls under a false identity,” cites this as a crime.

If you break this rule, you could face jail time, fines, or both. Before you hide your phone number on Glo, you should think about what the legal consequences are and make sure you are not breaking any rules or laws.

If you're not sure what the law says about hiding your phone number, you should talk to a lawyer.
