If you don't want your phone number to be easily shared, get a non-published (or private) listing.
Benefits of a private listing
By restricting where your information is published, a private listing helps you control who can get your name, street address and phone number.
With it, your contact information won't appear in our:
- Phone directories (print or web)
- Directory Assistance
Additionally, your telephone number won't be included on lists that we provide to other companies for marketing purposes.
Limitations of a private listing
Even with a private listing, your contact information will be shared with a select few including:
- 911 and E911 emergency services
- Telephone companies for itemized billing and collections
Note: From time to time, we may contact you with special offers on other privacy-related products or to let you know about other services available from CenturyLink. To avoid these calls and remove your name from our calling lists, call us at 866-450-6152.
Costs of a private listing
Did you know? Even though you have a private listing, your name and number will still show up on caller ID. To block your information, dial before you place your call. Your identity will be blocked on the recipient.s caller ID for that call. This service is called, "per call blocking." It's available anytime, and there.s no charge to use it. If you want your number to not show up at all, ask us about permanent line blocking.
