What is PrivacyProtect?

PrivacyProtect is a service offered by the carsales network to help keep your personal details safe online by hiding your number completely, and providing you with a pre-paid virtual phone number that will be displayed on your ad 

Any buyer that rings the number will be diverted to your designated personal phone number without the caller ever seeing your actual number. As PrivacyProtect is a landline style number, it also eliminates the option for buyers to SMS a seller, preventing any potential scam text messages from getting through. 

PrivacyProtect is included in our Ultimate ad and can be purchased for an additional $20 on any Standard or Premium ads.  

To activate, top-up or remove PrivacyProtect, sign into your bikesales account, visit the Manage Ad page and then click 'Improve your ad'.


You can view the full PrivacyProtect terms and conditions here. (section 10)
