  1. Tap Settings.
  2. Tap “FaceTime”
  3. Toggle the “FaceTime” option in the right pane to turn it off.

  1. Tap Settings.
  2. Tap “General” in the left pane.

Preventing Calls on FaceTime

If you don’t want to receive calls on FaceTime, you don’t have to switch on the Airplane Mode or Do Not Disturb Mode on your iPad. You can unlink your email address or phone number on FaceTime with these steps. 

  1. Open the iPad’s Settings and tap “FaceTime”.
  2. Find your linked email and phone number under the “You Can Be Reached by FaceTime At” option.
  3. Tap the email and phone to deselect them from FaceTime and to stop receiving calls from others.
Remember

If you have disabled FaceTime, you won’t see the reachable settings on your iPad. 

Using FaceTime ID on Two Devices

If you want to use FaceTime ID on two different iOS devices, you can play with the settings that work for you.

Suppose you want to use FaceTime on your iPad and iPhone with the same account. Go to the Settings on your iPad and tap “FaceTime”. Tap the “You Can Be Reached by FaceTime At” section and deselect the phone number.

Open Settings on your iPhone and tap “FaceTime”. Deselect the email address under the “You Can Be Reached by FaceTime At” section. 

In the above scenario, your contacts can reach you on FaceTime through the phone number on your iPhone and via email on your iPad.
