Unique ID in Sharepoint List

To begin with, is that really possible???
Can we have a automatically generated number for a column is Sharepoint?
The answer is.... YES, it is possible to have it.

I don’t think we can add a new unique auto-generated ID to a SharePoint list without custom code, but there already is one there by default. If you edit the “All Items” view you will see a list of columns that do not have the display option checked.
You would see the ID column unchecked there.

Select that column to your view and you will get a unique auto incrementing column for your list.

ID column is a Sharepoint system generated column
