Get Started with Number Masking API


Phone number masking hides the phone numbers of parties in a call from each other. Many businesses find it advantageous to anonymize communication between two parties.

  • Food/grocery and ecommerce delivery apps connect a delivery agent to a customer.
  • Ride-hailing apps connect a driver to a person who ordered a ride.
  • Classified ad listing apps connect a seller to a buyer, or a service provider to a customer.

Plivo’s Number Masking API handles both virtual number assignment and call flow management. You use it by sending the real phone numbers of parties over an API request. Plivo will respond back with a virtual number from your account which you can use for hosting the masked session.
