As technology advances further, the need for increased phone security is becoming more essential. Unwanted calls or texts from unknown callers can be a nuisance and a security risk. Fortunately, there are ways to block these unknown callers on Android devices – and it’s easier than you might think.

To start blocking calls on an Android phone, go to the Phone call app and select “Settings”. From there, choose “Call blocking & decline with message” or “Caller ID & spam”. Here you will be able to choose which numbers or contacts you wish to block from calling or texting your device. You can also block calls from unknown numbers or private numbers.

In addition to blocking calls, you can also use the “Do Not Disturb” feature on your Android phone. This will block all incoming calls and texts for a period of time, including those from known contacts. You can customize it to fit your needs – whether that’s preventing any calls or texts during certain hours, blocking all calls from unknown numbers, or both.

Android phones also have the option of using third-party call blocking apps that can provide added security and privacy. These apps offer features such as auto-blocking of certain number types (e.g., international or private numbers) or even blocking by keyword. They also provide detailed logs that you can review to see who is trying to contact your phone.

By taking the time to block unwanted calls and texts on Android devices, you can greatly reduce the amount of spam and nuisance calls you receive. This will increase your security as well as enhance your overall experience with your device.
