Your personal phone number is included in "confidential information," and there are many scenarios where you need to keep it anonymous. For example, when you want to call a company and don't want them to record your phone number, a good idea is to call with a hidden number. It can also be useful when you need to use your personal phone for work-related purposes.

I am happy to share my experiences in the field of computers, mobile phones and operating systems, to develop web projects and to bring the most useful tutorials and advice. I like to "play" on the iPhone, MacBook Pro, iPad, AirPort Extreme and on operating systems macOS, iOS, Android and Windows.
