How To Block Calls From Private Numbers On Android

Some call centers don’t want you to know where they are calling from or be able to identify them from their number. Blocking private numbers isn’t perfect. The setting is a blanket ban on all private numbers so friends or family who use withheld numbers will be blocked too.

However, both Android and iPhone have the ability to block calls from private numbers, or any numbers too. Follow below steps to block call from private numbers on Android phone:

  • Launch the dialer app on your phone.
  • Select the three dot menu icon in the top right.
  • Tap on Blocked from the menu.
  • Click on the Call block rules at the bottom of the screen.
  • Toggle on Block private/withheld numbers.
