Getting a call from a person you do not know or do not seem to recall can be scary. People these days can hide behind the safety of call anonymity to stalk you or even threaten you or your family. The call might also be innocent; like an old friend trying to re-connect. Either way, getting to know the identity of a caller is very important. From cell phones to landlines, there are different ways to track down an unknown or even blocked number.
For Cell Phones Use This:
For cell phones these days, there are a lot of applications for smartphones that let you know who is and calling. Some of these apps are; Unknowncalls.net (which is the most commonly used), trap call, whoscall, just to mention a few, download these apps to find out who is calling you. Plus, apps like truecaller are free! There is also another way of unmasking blocked numbers that is by logging on to your phone’s web account and looking for the blocked numbers there. Cross reference the time the blocked number called with the time in your web account and you will find the number that has been calling you.
For landlines, the first step here is to find out the location or origin of the number. You can do this, via Google the number, the public yellow pages or even social media. By doing this you may find information about that particular number posted by someone else. People who want to hide their identity from you will go to great lengths to do so, such as mask their voices, to make sure you do not find out who they are. Let’s face it, there are a lot of weird people out there. Taking advantage of the services provided by telephone providers to trace masked calls is another step.
