The Privacy feature
allows you to enable or disable the capability of users with phones that share
the same line (DN) to view call status and to barge into the call. You can
enable or disable privacy for each phone or for all phones. By default, the
system enables privacy for all phones in the cluster.
When the device that
is configured for privacy registers with
Unified Communications Manager, the feature button on the phone that
is configured with privacy gets labeled, and the status is indicated through an
icon. If the button has a lamp, it comes on.
When the phone
receives an incoming call, the user makes the call private (so the call
information does not display on the shared line) by pressing the Privacy
feature button. The Privacy feature button toggles between On and Off.

Cisco Unified IP Phone supports Privacy, see the user documentation for your
