There’s a new Privacy parameter in the Programmable Voice API




What's happening?

Later this month, a new optional Privacy parameter will be added to the Programmable Voice API. This parameter allows customers to assign one of four privacy strings to the Caller ID for new outbound, forwarded, or transferred calls: Restricted, Anonymous, Private, or Unavailable.

What do I need to know?

If this parameter is included and assigned True, one of the privacy strings must be assigned to the displayName parameter. Additionally, the From parameter should contain an E.164 number. These values will be included in several webhooks received by the customer application as option values.
