If Privacy Protect is included as part of your Ultimate Ad or you choose to purchase it as an add-on, your private number will be hidden on your ad completely and it will be replaced with a virtual phone number. Any potential buyer that rings the virtual number displayed on your ad will be redirected to the number you’ve provided us with, without the caller ever seeing your private number. Privacy Protect is included in our Ultimate Ad and can also be purchased for an additional $20 to add on any Standard or Premium Ad. Once it’s added to your ad, you’ll get unlimited use of Privacy Protect for 45 days. You can read the full Privacy Protect Terms & Conditions here.
