Caller ID has been around for years, and Americans have begun to rely on it for means of knowing who is calling them , and from which particular phone number. But when looking at the phone call from the other side, Caller ID is actually handing out personal information over to callers with each and every call we make. As identity theft becomes an extreme problem of our present, who truly wants to have their personal information consistently sent to hundred or maybe thousands of callers per month?
Call spoofing, also know as Caller ID replacement is a solution to this present problem. But what is call spoofing, and how does one make sure each and every one of their calls is protected from call recipient‘s Caller ID displays?
Caller ID spoofing is a means of making a phone call to anyone within the continental United States without revealing a phone number or your identity of the caller. This service has grown more and more popular with each passing day. So, to make a call spoof, one must first purchase either a limited or unlimited service plan from a call spoofing company. An unlimited plan is often less expensive in the long-run, and allows you to have a fixed price for unlimited usage. After your service is set up, you are ready to begin to make safer, more protected phone calls.
Each time an individual makes a phone call they are able to manipulate both the phone number and name shown to the recipient, to be whatever they wish. Some callers choose to use the same name when spoofing friends - ie. Yogi Bear. Others may choose to rename themselves with every call. In calling larger corporations, you can keep your phone number safe from being added to a call-lists for ongoing service and product calls. Truly, the benefits of Caller ID replacement are endless.
