How to Find an Anonymous Call Number
Anonymous Calls: from Jokes to Stalking
One of the most popular jokes some people like to do is calling their friends with hidden number and tricking them. But anonymous calls are not always a joke: they may also be used for other scopes, or even to stalk a person. In these cases the best solution is to report the fact to the Police, but in general, if you want to discover people who call you without revealing their phone number, for example in order to discover which friend is joking with you, or also in order to get more data about a stalker in case you decide to go to the Police (not a necessary thing, since policemen automatically discover anonymous people, but it can help), you can rely on a popular service: Whooming.
Discover Anonymous Calls
Whooming can be set in order that, when you receive a call and you reject it, the call is sent to service's servers: so, in order to discover who is calling you anonimously, you have to reject the call, so that Whooming can read the number and show it to you.
Whooming is a freemium service: if you use it for free and receive an anonymous call, you will be told the number after 24 hours, by going to your Whooming panel on the website and looking at the records. Otherwise you can add some money to your Whooming wallet, in order that you receive a SMS with the number right after you have refused the anonymous call. If you decide to top up your Whooming wallet, keep in mind that prices are very low, in fact Whooming service is very cheap compared to specific options offered by phone carriers to show anonymous numbers.
Have you ever received anonymous calls?
Blocking Anonymous Calls
Some people solve the problem by directly blocking anonymous calls on their phones, and this may be a valid solution, especially if you limit calls only to your contacts: but not all people follow this solution, especially if they need to be reached, not only by family and friends, but also by other people. If someone does not need to receive calls from people outside phonebook, limiting calls to some specific allowed numbers may be the best solution, also in order to block calls from promotional call centers. But if you need to be reachable by everyone, Whooming may be the best solution for your safety.
