Is it possible to add a phone number to an IG account but not allowing people to find you?

What I mean is, when you add your phone to your IG account, you start popping up in your contact's suggestions and vice versa. I've been avoiding adding my phone number to my IG for that reason but I think not having it linked with a phone number restrict my account in some way (maybe with reach and such) and I also I want to have it there for security, just in case.
Is there a way to prevent your number being used to appear as a suggestion to your contacts?
Is it true that not having the account phone verified limits your reach?
Thank you so much for your feedback
 
Link a Google Voice number (a number that no one you know will have).
Wow, thank you so much.
I think I'll use that.
Is there any way to avoid appearing to your contacts though while using your regular phone number? I could really use that in the future.

Not too sure. Another member will need to comment on that. However, with the Google Voice approach, you shouldn't need to worry about others you know being able to find you.
