When using this feature, the provider will give you a virtual number. Your actual telephone number will be linked to this virtual number. When the client calls a virtual number, it will automatically ring into your phone. Virtual numbers cannot be tracked to you, so you can keep your information private. You can forward landline to cell phone.
You can attach a number to any phone, so you can receive calls on your mobile, at home, or in the office. If you want a business call to ring into your home when you work from home, call forwarding will direct the call to your home, but the client will never know that you are at home. Your clients don't realize that they are connected to different numbers when they call because the transfer is smooth and it looks like a normal phone call.
How to protect your privacy
With the progress of search online, people can now do a reverse search. This allows someone to type a telephone number and accept the name and address of the owner. If the person is willing to pay a small fee, they can also receive more personal information in terms of the owner of the telephone number. It puts a lot of personal information at anyone's fingertips, and when you run a business, you don't need everyone to know your personal business.
When you use a virtual number, you are given a special number through a call company. When the client calls the number, they are still connected to your normal phone but you will not appear as the owner of a virtual number.
