How phone number masking works
Mask a phone number
To hide a phone number, get a virtual number through Apico Numbers API and link it to a permanent number you want to mask
All calls made to the virtual phone number are forwarded to the permanent one
Make anonymous calls
The person you’re calling sees your virtual, rather than permanent number
PERSONAL NUMBERS ARE NEVER DISCLOSED
on either side of a conversation
Putting anonymous calling & SMS to use
Taxis, deliveries, cleaning, home repair, and service aggregators
