It is very important to protect our privacy. To register in many messaging applications we need to provide our number and obviously it would not be ideal for everyone to have access to it. That’s why it’s so important hide phone number on Telegram.
In Telegram we can communicate with different people by adding them by phone number or by unique user names. Therefore, no one needs to know our phone number. Let’s see how to hide it from everyone.
How to hide phone number in Telegram on Android
We are going to open the Telegram app on Android and click on the three lines found in the upper left corner of the screen. A few options are displayed and the one we are going to select is “Configuration”.
Next, we will have to go to the “Privacy and security” section. From here we press on “Telephone number”. We go to “Who can see my phone number” and we can see that by default the option “Everyone” is checked.
What we must do is simply mark “Nobody” or “My contacts”. In this way we can configure so that certain people see our number or directly nobody.
We also have to configure the option “Who can find me by my number”. Ideally, we mark “My contacts” for added security.
Once you have all the changes applied. We are simply going to have to click on the check mark in the upper right corner of the screen to confirm. In this simple way we will be able to hide the phone number in Telegram.
Hide my number in Telegram on iPhone
In iPhone it is quite similar to hide the phone number in Telegram. It changes the way we get to the option slightly. We open the application and we are going to touch “Settings”.
After this we will have to enter “Privacy and security”. We go to the “Telephone number” section. Here we are going to see a section that says “Who can see my phone number” and we are going to select “My contacts”.
If we want only the people you have in your contact book to see your number or no one directly, if we want no one to see it, regardless of whether you have it scheduled or not.
A little further down we have the option to choose if we want no one or only our contacts to be able to locate us by phone number. We can clarify it in “Who can find me by my number”.
