Most Apple users might think that FaceTime is always associated only with your iTunes account or Apple ID. But, it can actually add any email ID that you want and lets you use it to make calls. Therefore, if you have an interview to attend, but you do not wish to share your personal information, you can actually do it with FaceTime.

So, how can you hide your number on FaceTime? It is possible to add your work Email ID or a secondary one to the FaceTime, without even changing your Apple ID. Thus you can make and receive calls using the same, instead of your sharing your personal phone number.
