What does a call blocker do?

A call blocker (also called call screening or call rejection) is used to block any unwanted calls. You can use the call blacklist technology to block:

  • Spam calls;
  • Unsolicited calls from marketers;
  • Robocalls.

How do I block incoming telephone calls?

You can use a call screening or call blacklist technology to block incoming calls to your phone. Some landlines and smartphones also have inbuilt call blockers.

If you have a centralised business phone system like Ringover, use their call blocker screen or blacklist feature to block unwanted incoming phone calls.

How do I block unwanted phone calls?

If you want to block calls on your android or iPhone, follow the instructions in the phone settings. You can also use third-party apps such as:

  • Truecaller;
  • Hiya;
  • Call Control;
  • Blacklist Plus.

However, if you wish to block unwanted phone calls on your online business phone system, you need to blacklist the number using the call screen feature. Once you blacklist a number, all future calls from the number will automatically be rejected.

What number is call blocker?

You can block spam calls or unwanted calls on your landline using the *60 code. Here is how to do it:

  • Step 1: Dial *60 (dial 1160 if you are using a rotary phone).
  • Step 2: Follow the instructions and dial the phone number you want to block when prompted.
  • Step 3: Confirm the number by following the instruction provided by your service provider.

You can add more numbers to the block list by repeating the above steps.

You can also use the National Do Not Call Registry to block unwanted telemarketing calls by calling 1-888-382-1222 or TTY: 1-866-290-4236.

How do I use a Call Screen?

To screen calls, you can use apps like:

  • Phone by Google;
  • Truecaller;
  • CallApp;
  • Mr. Number.

In a business phone system, the IVR can screen your calls. Most of the bots will not be able to follow the instructions given by IVR to get connected to your sales reps. Call screening helps:

  • Avoid spam calls;
  • Reduce call abandonment rate;
  • Have fewer missed calls;
  • Improve productivity.

What phones have call screening?

Smartphones like Google Pixel use call screening technology. The Google call screening technology is also available on certain Motorola and Nokia devices.

You can also use an app called Phone by Google to screen your calls on android phones. The call screen app, with the help of Google Assistant, screens phone calls and lets you know if they are spam, bot calls, etc.

If you want to make use of call screening in your contact centre or call centre, go for a VoIP communication provider like Ringover. The platform comes with call screening and blacklisting features.
