Why you should block a number on Android?

It’s also possible that someone use a restricted number to contact your underage kids. Scammers call and persuade naive kids to share their personal information.

How to block phone numbers on Android?

 

It’s quite annoying to receive spam calls. Thankfully, there are feasible ways to prevent them from calling you in the future. Below, we’ll discuss how to block phone numbers on Android phone.

 

Use Android built-in feature

 

Android has a inbuilt phone feature that allows you to block a number. Just tap a number in your or kids’ call log and hit Block/report spam. Additionally, Android can automatically identify and block suspected spam calls so they don’t ring your device and harass you. This option is enabled by default but you can check it by navigating to settings in your phone app and then caller ID & spam. You should make sure both the Caller ID & spam and Filter spam calls switches are toggled on. However, this feature isn’t very useful in some cases. Spammers rarely use the same number or they’re likely to use the neighborhood spoofing technique while this won’t block the majority of spam calls.

 

Use Google Voice

 

Another way to block a number on Android phone is use Google Voice. It can block spam calls and prevent them from going to voicemail. It requires you to switch to Google Voice as your main number and stop giving out your old carrier number. With this tool, you’ll block unwanted calls in three ways: by sending those calls to voicemail, by treating the call as spam(letting the caller leave voicemail but tagged as spam) or by call blocking(the caller will hear a “number not in service” message and will not be able to leave voice mail). However, this method requires you to forward to the number from your carrier. Also, it’s not guaranteed that spam callers won’t call your carrier number directly.
