How Do I Fake my Number?

The question, "how do I fake my number or fake caller ID?" although not as commonly asked as "how do I block my number," is becoming more prevalent.  This is because faking your number is preferred over blocking your number.  Most people will not answer their phone if a blocked number appears on their call display.

Faking your number is what is know as "caller id spoofing," "call display spoofing," or "spoof calling" among others.  Caller ID spoofing allows a user to change the number that someone sees on their call display when they place a call to them.  Instead of having to block your number or display your real number, you can fake caller ID to have it display anything (such as 555 or 909-444-1234).  If I fake my number, I spoof my number.

So why fake my number?  Not only does it help to protect my privacy, there are many uses for caller ID spoofing.
