Are you tired of receiving unwanted calls on your Mac? Don’t worry, blocking a number on Mac is easier than you think.

In this tutorial, we will walk you through the step-by-step process of blocking a number on your Mac using built-in features. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Open the FaceTime Application

To begin, open the FaceTime application on your Mac. You can find it in your Applications folder or by using Spotlight search.

Step 2: Sign In with Your Apple ID

If you haven’t signed in already, enter your Apple ID and password to log in to FaceTime. This step is necessary to access the blocking feature.

Step 3: Go to Preferences

Once you are signed in, click on “FaceTime” in the menu bar at the top of the screen, and then select “Preferences” from the dropdown menu.

Step 4: Navigate to the Blocked tab

In the Preferences window, click on the “Blocked” tab located at the top.

Step 5: Add a Number to Block

To block a specific number, click on the “+” button at the bottom left corner of the window. A new window will appear where you can add numbers to be blocked.


  • You can only block callers who are saved as contacts or have called you previously.
  • If you want to block someone who isn’t in your contacts list or hasn’t called you before, ask them to make a call first or add them as a contact manually.

Step 6: Select a Contact or Enter a Phone Number

In the new window, you can either select a contact from your list or manually enter a phone number to block. Choose the desired option and click “Block”.

Step 7: Confirm Blocking the Number

A confirmation message will appear, asking if you want to block the selected number. Click “Block” again to confirm.

Step 8: Repeat if Necessary

If you want to block multiple numbers, repeat steps 5-7 for each number you wish to block.

Step 9: Manage Blocked Numbers

If you ever need to manage or unblock blocked numbers, simply go back to the Preferences window and click on the “Blocked” tab. From there, you can remove or unblock any previously blocked numbers.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to block a number on your Mac using FaceTime. Now, unwanted calls will no longer bother you while working or enjoying your time on your Mac!
