Are you tired of receiving unwanted private calls on your Android device? If so, you’ll be glad to know that there are ways to block these calls and regain your peace of mind. In this tutorial, we will show you how to block private calls on Android using simple steps.

Step 1: Open the Phone App

To get started, open the phone app on your Android device. This is usually located on your home screen or in the app drawer.

Step 2: Access Call Settings

Once you have the phone app open, look for the three-dot menu icon in the top right corner of the screen. Tap on it to open a dropdown menu. From the options presented, select “Settings” to access the call settings.

Step 3: Find and Tap on “Blocked Numbers”

In the call settings menu, scroll down until you find an option called “Blocked numbers” or something similar. This is where you can manage blocked contacts and numbers.

Step 4: Add Private Call to Blocked Numbers

In the “Blocked numbers” menu, tap on the option to add a new blocked number. You may see a plus sign (+) icon or an “Add number” button – tap on it.

  • Type: In this section, select “Private number” or any similar option that refers to blocking private calls specifically.
  • Add Number: Enter a description for this block if desired (e.g., “Private Call Block”). Then, enter “Private Number” or any other relevant name as the phone number.

Note: Some Android devices may have slightly different terms or options in their call settings menu, but the general idea remains the same. Look for options related to blocking numbers or calls.

Step 5: Save the Blocked Number

After entering the necessary information to block private calls, tap on the “Save” or “OK” button to save the blocked number.

Step 6: Confirm Block

Once you save the blocked number, you may see a confirmation message asking if you want to block all private numbers. Confirm this action by tapping on “Block” or “Yes.” This ensures that any future private calls are automatically blocked on your Android device.

Step 7: Verify Blocked Calls

To verify that private calls are successfully blocked, ask someone you know with a hidden or private number to call your Android device. If everything is set up correctly, their call should be rejected or sent directly to voicemail without your phone ringing.

Additional Tips:

  • Unblocking Calls: If you ever want to unblock private numbers in the future, simply go back to the “Blocked numbers” menu and remove the entry associated with blocking private calls.
  • Contact Your Service Provider: In some cases, blocking private calls using your Android device’s built-in settings may not be possible. If that’s the case, consider contacting your service provider for assistance in blocking these unwanted calls.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to block private calls on your Android device. Enjoy a more peaceful calling experience without unwanted interruptions!
