How to Hide Contacts on iPhone

You can hide any name by using a nickname in the Contact app’s first and last name fields. But iOS also supports Short Names or Nicknames from Settings. Nicknames aren’t foolproof, but they can help you camouflage specific contact names from the call screen.

STEPS

  • Log in to iCloud with your Apple ID and password.
  • Select Contacts.
  • Select the “plus” icon on the left sidebar and choose New Group
  • Give the new Group a name.

You can now add names to this contact group in three ways. This step copies the contacts from the All Contacts group to your designated group:

  • Drag and drop names from the contacts column to the group.
  • Select non-contiguous contacts together by pressing the Ctrl key on Windows (Command key on macOS)
  • Select multiple contiguous contacts with the Shift key
  • Open the Phone app and select Contacts.
  • Select Groups.
  • Select Hide All Contacts at the foot of the screen.
  • Go back to the main Contacts screen and you will see that all contacts are now hidden.
  • To reveal all contacts again, return to Groups. Select Show All Contacts to bring back your complete contact list or the specific Group only
