Are you tired of receiving annoying text messages from unknown or unwanted numbers on your Android device? Luckily, there is a way to block these pesky texts and regain your peace of mind. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of blocking a text number on Android.

Step 1: Open the Messaging App

To get started, open the messaging app on your Android device. This app may vary depending on the brand and model of your phone. It could be called “Messages,” “Messaging,” or something similar.

Step 2: Find the Message from the Number You Want to Block

Scroll through your messages until you find the one from the number you want to block. Once you’ve located it, tap and hold on the message until a menu appears.


If you haven’t received any messages from this number yet, ask yourself if you’re sure you want to block it. Blocking a number means that all future texts from that number will be automatically deleted without notifying you.

Step 3: Block the Number

After holding down on the message, a menu should pop up with various options. Look for an option that says “Block” or “Block contact.” Tap on it to proceed.


In some messaging apps, blocking a number may be found under additional options such as “More” or represented by three dots.

Step 4: Confirm Blocking

A confirmation dialog box will appear asking if you’re sure you want to block this number. Read through the message carefully and make sure it’s indeed the number you want to block.

If it is, tap on “OK” or “Confirm. “

Step 5: Verify the Block

To ensure that the number is successfully blocked, check for a message or notification confirming the block. Some messaging apps may display a message saying that the number has been blocked, while others may simply remove any trace of messages from that number.

Step 6: Manage Blocked Numbers (Optional)

If you ever change your mind and want to unblock a number or manage your blocked contacts, you can do so through your Android device’s settings. Go to your phone’s settings, find “Blocked numbers” or “Blocked contacts,” and make any necessary changes.


The exact location of the “Blocked numbers” or “Blocked contacts” settings may vary slightly depending on your Android device’s manufacturer and software version.

In Conclusion

Blocking a text number on Android is a simple and effective way to stop receiving unwanted messages. By following these steps, you can regain control over your messaging inbox and ensure that only desired texts make it through.

Remember, blocking a number means that all future texts from that contact will be automatically deleted without notifying you. So use this feature wisely!
