One of the downsides of having a phone in your pocket all the time is unwanted calls. Sure, you could simply not answer the call, but that’s still annoying. You can avoid this by blocking unknown numbers on Android.
We’re going to be showing you how to block calls from “unknown” numbers, but what does that actually mean? In short, it blocks any call from a private or unknown number. This does not mean it will block calls from numbers not included in your contacts, as it does on iPhone. Private and unknown calls literally appear on caller ID without a phone number. Blocking these calls will not block calls from regular phone numbers, even if they aren’t in your contacts.

First, we’ll show you how to block unknown callers from the “Phone by Google” app. You can download the app from the Play Store and set it as the default dialer. It will ask to be set as default when you install it, but if you miss that you can do so from Settings > Apps >Default Apps > Phone App.
Now go to the Phone by Google and tap the three-dot menu icon in the top-right corner.
Select “Settings” from the menu.
Select “Blocked Numbers.”
Toggle the switch on for “Unknown.”
You will no longer receive calls from unidentified callers.
