Block numbers with the help of the application
If the system lock available on mobile phones is not enough for us, we can use the available mobile applications.
Truecaller is a very popular application that can help you deal with unwanted calls and messages. It is an application that, thanks to a rich and constantly updated database of numbers, identifies spam and automatically blocks it. The application also allows you to identify incoming calls from unknown numbers and makes it easier to reject those you don’t want. By the way, it also allows you to record important conversations and has a number of other useful functions.
The CallApp mobile application works similarly, although there are also other similar applications that also work well in the fight against unwanted calls and messages.
Blocking numbers through the operator
If you do not want to install the application and the system solution does not solve our problem, we can use the help of your telephone operator.
With the help of the operator’s mobile application, by entering his account on his website or contacting the helpline, we can block any number and make a number of changes, for example, set a complete block of anonymous connections, i.e. restricted numbers.
