Changing FaceTime Caller ID on Mac

FaceTime is a native application on Apple devices (iPhone, iPad and Mac) that allows you to make voice calls, over the internet or phone signal, through the continuity feature. Thus, even when using a Mac, the user can use his phone number in calls without needing the iPhone.

In this sense, if you use FaceTime as your main application to make calls to other people, or to participate in group meetings, you may want the phone number not to appear in calls. After all, preserving privacy is essential, especially to avoid unwanted calls or messages.

The best alternative, then, is to use your email associated with your Apple ID in calls through the app. That is, you can continue using FaceTime, but sensitive information (personal phone number) will remain hidden.
