Call forwarding & caller ID
You can set up call forwarding and change your outgoing caller ID info.
Set up call forwarding
Forward the calls you receive to a separate number. Here's how to add or edit a number:
- Open the Project Fi app or website.
- In the "Account" tab, under "Call & text settings," select Call forwarding.
- Add or edit a number.
- You'll be asked to verify the number. Follow the onscreen steps to complete verification.
Keep in mind that you won't be able to forward calls to a Google Voice or Project Fi number.
Block your outgoing Caller ID info
You can block your outgoing Caller ID info for specific calls:
Dial: *67 + the phone number.
This applies to one call at a time. You need to use *67 each time you want to block your info.
This doesn't prevent the display of your information when you dial certain business numbers, including 911 or toll-free numbers.
Choose if your name displays to others in Caller ID by Google
Caller ID by Google shows names for people and businesses not in your contacts. For example, if you get a call from a participating restaurant, you’ll see the restaurant's name on your phone. You can turn Caller ID by Google on or off.
Your name and photo can be displayed in Caller ID by Google if you’ve verified your phone number and have the setting turned on.
If you don’t want your info to be shared, go to your Google Account settings and uncheck the boxes under your phone number.
