Hiding phone numbers is now so common. Many now have reasons to hide their phone number before placing a call over.
In one of our previous articles, we explain 3 methods to hide your phone number – so the call receiver won’t be able to view the phone number of the incoming call.
To hide your mobile number is as easy as adding #31# before dialing a number.
On the other hand, unveiling a hidden number is much more difficult. This is because everyone had a right to privacy as long as it does not impose danger on the other party.
Am sure that lots of people have contacted the mobile network customer service asking for a way to view private or hidden incoming call numbers. I have also done that once.
I don’t know what their reply was, but in 95% of cases, they will tell you that it is not possible. The reason for this is because they have to protect their customer’s privacy.
We are all aware today that lots of criminals and kidnappers exist. These people may want to hide their number if they’re going to contact people for ransom on a kidnapped victim – or as the case may be.
There are also lots of other life-threatening ways people may be approached with private hidden numbers.
How to Unveil a Hidden Phone Number
1. Information from your network provider
The truth is that your mobile network provider has the capacity to reveal or detect all hidden numbers. But there must be a convincing reason before they may listen to you.
If the situation surrounding the hidden number is such, that is life-threatening or may cause huge damage. You will have to contact a high-level security authority to handle the case.
With their help – your network provider will release the hidden number of information to them. So they can carry out proper investigation on it. Customer privacy is important; this is why they can’t release the data to a person.
Although this has to do with your country’s telecommunication rules and regulations. It brings us to the second alternative.
2. USSD Code allowed by network providers
This should only work in a country where telecommunication regulations enable users to view information of hidden numbers. If allowed – there will be a USSD code provided, is likely to be *#30#.
If supported, no incoming number will be hidden once you have sent the USSD code.
There had also been cases in some countries where they dial a specific number or USSD code for the network to display the last private number that called.
